You have to factor in import taxes, exports costs, and most importantly branding - both Roewe and MG are advertising that they are 'British' cars and not Chinese. Also, material resources for car production are pretty much the same price all over the world, especially if you're going for quality stuff.

Americans would lap up something that is 'British' - refined, luxurious, elegant etc - in short, the British stereotype is easier to sell than the Chinese stereotype.

Plus Im sure MG are getting huge tax incentives for investing in OK, bringing USD investment back to America and setting a trend for other Chinese companies investing in USA, rather than the other way around.

Its a good thing for both parties.

It's interesting that NAC is persuing a truly global vision with possible new factories in the US, UK, China, Vietnam and Russia. They clearly want to become a serious player very quickly.

If the price was low, safety features abundant, and design very British, I would definitely stop in for a look at my local MG-Roewe dealer!

A year and a half later, I can't find any new info on this.

This ambitious project of flying CKD's in from China on a 747 transport plane seems to be dead in the water.
SAIC knows that it is not ready for such a serious step forward at this point in time.

Default re:Nanjing on the front

Chinese car makers have started to explore other avenues to prove their worth in this business.
