Chinese carmaker SAIC Motor has already relaunched the redesigned iconic British car brand MG (Morris Garages) in the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and Portugal. From April 2021, MG is also sold in Sweden.
Sales of MG started in April / May 2021, with the first delivery of vehicles in May. The head office and logistics center are in Gothenburg and cater for a nationwide network of service and sales points for MG.
MG's electric cars and plug-in hybrids are ideal for the Swedish market and MG only sells pure electric cars (BEV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV). The goal is to become one of the ten largest brands on the Swedish market in terms of volume within a few years. MG's stated ambition is to make electric mobility accessible to all European drivers who are ready to embark on a new electric lifestyle.
The first models to be launched are the MG ZS - a pure electric car in the Compact-SUV segment - and the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid - an SUV in the C-segment. In addition, two new electric MG models, MG Marvel R Electric and MG5 Electric, will be launched in Sweden during the latter part of 2021. All models are offered with a 7-year new car warranty.
