MG Motor is on the verge of launching a new range of electric vehicles, according to a prominent Chinese official.
Speaking at the SMMT International Automotive Summit in London today, Chinese embassy minister Ma Hui revealed that the company’s R&D facility at Longbridge, Birmingham, was working on an electrification strategy for the SAIC-owned brand.
‘China has invested a lot in UK automotive,’ he said. ‘And this continues. We put development money into MG Motor and it has recently launched lots of new models, with a new selection of electric models to follow very soon.’
MG Motor is a subsidiary of SAIC Motor UK, which in turn is owned by the Shanghai-based Chinese state-owned SAIC Motor.
