MG History Explained
MG is a British automotive marque founded by Cecil Kimber in the 1920s. M.G. Car Company Limited was the British sports car manufacturer that made the marque famous.
Best known for its open two-seater sports cars, MG also produced saloons and coupés, with engines up to three litres in size. The marque is now owned by state-owned Chinese company SAIC Motor Corporation Limited.
MG cars had their roots in a 1920s sales promotion sideline of Morris Garages, a retail sales and service centre in Oxford belonging to William Morris. The business's manager, Cecil Kimber, modified standard production Morris Oxfords and added MG Super Sports to the plate at the nose of the car. A separate M.G. Car Company Limited was incorporated in July 1930.
Where are MG based and built?
Today MG is baked in Longbridge, Birmingham. With the cars being manufactured in China.
