On top of that Roewe to the best of my knowledge have only been sold in China, and at the time NAIC and Nanjing were still seperate and competing entities, with only Nanjing having European operations. So obviously I would say plans to sell the Roewe 550, or more likely the MG 5 in the UK must exist, and have done for some time.

At the time however, all I could think was how much the front end looked like a Chrysler Neon and how much of a blandfest it was. Hell, I was massively more excited when I spotted and tailed a Bini Clubman all taped up on trade plates around 6 months before being officially unveiled on my way to work a few years ago
There are a few 08 registered test cars in the UK doing long term tests in normal use, SAIC have had a research and development centre in the UK since 2005, currently located at Longbridge. The Roewe 550 has also been sold in Chile and Belarus but with an MG badge on the front, it will also be launched in Brazil in a few months time. MG Motor UK are currently preparing for production of the MG6 (based on the 550) at Longbridge UK starting later this year.
