MG models could be distributed via GM’s network of dealers in the UK, news agency Reuters has reported.
General Motors is said to be considering giving long-term Chinese partner SAIC – the owner of MG – access to its sales network across the country.
Kevin Wale, president and managing director of GM’s China operations said at the Reuters China Investment Summit that they had ‘agreed in an MOU’ to discuss the potential for MG to be distributed in the UK.
SAIC became the owner of MG Rover’s 10,000-unit Longbridge plant in Birmingham after a merger with Nanjing Automobile Group in late 2007.
Access to GM’s network in the UK would solve the marque’s problem of finding dealers in the UK and could see MGs sold alongside Vauxhalls and Chevrolets.
