Since the Chinese company Nanjing Automotive Group purchased the assets and name of the famous British brand of MG cars back in 2005, you knew it would only be a matter of time before the product line would be revamped and re-introduced. Here's a spy shot of the new MG2 which should debut sometime in April around the world after it debuts at the huge Beijing Auto Show.
Some major companies in China such as in the auto industry get help from the government, which views such investment as an important stake in the country's future. When Nanjing Automotive Group and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation considered a merger, the government actively encouraged the marriage of the two to create a stronger automobile giant that would be able to compete in world markets. The new MG2 is currently being tested in Australia, where it likely might see some serious marketing. In the U.S., the new MG2 might see some distribution by way of the Chilean importer, SKBerge.
