Morris Garage or MG will cease to British in any way possible as its new owners, SAIV from China has just announced they will stop making cars in the UK. SAIC will move the final assembly of the MG3 from Longbridge, central England, to China.

MG said the move will result in manufacturing efficiencies and help centralize distribution. It denied the decision was because of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, which MG has previously said has delayed its plans to market its cars in European countries outside the UK.

Production was restarted in the former MG Rover plant in 2011 with the MG6 midsize car as part of a drive to assure customers that MG was still British in character. SAIC acquired MG in 2007 after taking over Nanjing Automobile, which bought MG Rover following the UK automaker’s collapse in 2005.
