It's hotting up. But if SAIC do get it then they will have to make a model in the UK to maintain the brand appeal. People in the UK will refuse to buy a Rover on principle if SAIC are seen to have shipped all the jobs to China. Rover can be a good brand for SAIC if it understands the need to make at least one model in the UK.

I_hate_China's views is exactly why Nanjing must keep one fot in the UK with MG. The British public will need to believe that the cars they are buying are as good as anyone else's. Using ARUP to design and engineer the cars is a smart move, building one volume car (the ZT) will inspire confidence.

If SAIC do just make Rover's in China then people in the UK will just turn away in distain, they must prove they aren't merely asset stripping and that they understand the brands.

IMHO Nanjing and SAIC should collaborate,,,
