Nanjing nearly ready to restart MG production

For those awaiting the return of the Modern Gentleman, your wait is nearly over if you live somewhere other than the U.S. New owners of the MG name and much of the defunct automaker's production equipment, Nanjing Automobile Group, have announced that production of cars based on the old MG TF roadster will begin in China as soon as March of this year, while low volume production of right-hand drive models will begin at the automaker's old Longbridge assembly plant in April or May. The Chinese plant located in Pukou, Nanjing Province will handle the bulk of production, which is pegged at 6,000 units annually, though any right-hand drive orders will get their final assembly in Longbridge. Unfortunately, Nanjing has been mum on the prospects of selling MG-branded vehicles in the States again since the possibility was mentioned back in July of last year.
