MG plans to have more car models in two years.
June 12, 2008 - MG is extending its products lineup this year after selling one model for more than half a year. The crossover MG 3SW is to be launched in late June following the rollout of sports TF in late May.
The MG7-series has met with difficulties in market exploration due to single products line, but MG7 gains N0.1 in the MT sector of Guangdong market, taking 26% market share, said Yang Junhu, general manager of MG sales company.
The delivery of new MG models is entering a new period following TF was rolled out in May 26. Four models of 3SW will go on sale in late June and ten more new models will be delivered to the market in the second half of this year, including MT/AT extension version and AT MG7-series, Yang Junhu said.
Apart from mature models from acquiring the MG Rover, Yang Junhu said, MG will roll out a new model in late 2009 and will launch an all-new model in each of the coming three years. All these models will be introduced to China as mature products to ensure the quality, including 7-series, TF and 3-series that are mature products but also locally upgraded.
The 2009 models will have significant changes from current models but will also maintain the essence like their driving performance and power performance.
