The history of MG (Morris Garages) dates to 1924 when it first began operations in the United Kingdom. MG’s spectacular cabriolets and sports cars once used to be the ride of choice for many celebrities, including the British Prime Ministers and many of the British royal family.
The first few cars they manufactured bore the octagonal MG logo which became a symbol for the brand. Though the founders went on to win numerous awards over the years, they will always be remembered in history for pioneering the British automotive industry and creating world speed record by their sports cars. As one of the world’s most celebrated car brands, MG is poised to extend its proud legacy to Indian roads with a clear vision to build the ‘next generation automotive company’, while delivering the best automotive experience of its kind for customers – one that reflects the MG heritage, sporting legacy and sheer class.
Established in 2017, MG Motor India is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC Motor Corp. MG inaugurated its first manufacturing facility in September 2017 in Halol, Gujarat. Come 2019, MG Motor plans to launch its first wave of cars in India.
