NAC MG gets anglicised
19 January 2009

Chinese-owned MG has changed its name to “reinforce the presence and image of the MG brand”.

Since being taken over by Nanjing Automobile Corporation in 2005, MG has been operating as NAC MG UK Ltd, but will now be called MG Motor UK Ltd.

“It is anticipated that the new name will help strengthen the company’s reputation and re-emergence in the market by emphasising the already well known MG brand,” said the company in a press statement today.

MG recently relaunched the MG TF with a limited-run model called the MG TF LE500.
