First Chinese MGs built

Published: 27 March 2007

Today is an historic day for Nanjing Automotive as the first MG built outside Longbridge will leave the production line at Nanjing’s factory in China.

Around 1000 visitors are gathering at the plant to join in with the celebrations, where the new, Chinese-built MGs will be on display (above). The first cars off the production lines are the MG TF and the MG 7, which Brits will remember as the MG ZT.

The bulk of MG production has been shifted to Nanjing’s Chinese plant, but there are plans to begin small-scale production of the MG TF roadster at Longbridge later in the year.
