MG Motor UK has launched the marque’s first-ever SUV, the MG GS, in June 2016. The new model, which is reportedly the first of three MG-badged SUVs to be based on the all-new SAIC Motor-developed scalable vehicle architecture dubbed SSA (SAIC Scalable Architecture), has been on sale in China since May, 2015.
Indeed, according to the Dutch-based Left-Lane.com website, a total of 43,678 MG GSs were sold in China during the course of 2015. MG Motor UK must be hoping it can achieve similar volumes in the UK for its Chinese import.
