Origin: Cecil Kimber founded the British automotive marque MG in the 1920s, and M.G. Car Company Limited was the British sports car manufacturer that made the marque famous. MG was best known for its open two-seater sports cars, but it also produced saloons and coupés with engines as large as three litres. SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, a Chinese state-owned company, now owns the marque.
MG cars began as a sales promotion sideline of Morris Garages, a retail sales and service centre in Oxford owned by William Morris. Cecil Kimber, the company’s manager, modified standard production Morris Oxfords and added an MG Super Sports plate to the nose of the car. In July 1930, the M.G. Car Company Limited was formed. Morris kept it as his personal property until July 1, 1935, when he sold it to his holding company, Morris Motors Limited.
Over the years, MG’s ownership has changed several times. In 1952, Morris’ Nuffield Organization merged with Austin to form the British Motor Corporation Limited (BMC). Its operations were renamed the MG Division of BMC in 1967, and it was thus a component of the 1968 merger that formed British Leyland Motor Corporation (BLMC).
The MG marque was retained by BLMC’s successors: British Leyland, the Rover Group, and, by the beginning of the 2000s, the MG Rover Group, which went into receivership in 2005. Nanjing Automobile Group purchased the MG marque as well as other MG Rover assets (which merged into SAIC in 2007). In 2007, MG production resumed in China. The MG 6, the first new MG model in the UK in 16 years, was released on June 26, 2011.
