Currently, the MG Motors is the one who develops and markets cars sold under the MG marque. The entire MG automobiles are presently produced in China. MG Motor is the biggest importer of Chinese made cars into the United Kingdom.
MG was founded by Cecil Kimber in 1924. Kimber named the company as tribute to William Morris who was his employer at Morris Garages. The first line of MG automobile were built using Morris Cowley chassis until he finally built his first true MG in 1924 which is the 14/28 Super Sports. The release of the Super Sports marked the beginning of the octagonal logo that see today.
Right from the start, the brand MG was traded hands many times to different companies. It was once owned by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) in 1952, British Leyland (BL) in 1975, British Aerospace (BAe) in 1988, BMW in 1994, then to the MG Rover Group in 2000. The MG Rover manufactured some classic cars such as the MGA and MGB of the 50's/60''s and they also produced the MGB Roadster in 1975, the brand's 1-millionth unit. Most recently, the rights to the MG brand was bought by the Nanjing Automobile from China which created a new company, the MG Motor. It is located in Birmingham, UK. The company designs, develops and assembles models under the MG marque.

It was released at the Auto Shanghai Motor Show in April 2015.
The MG has been one of the most successful cars of recent seasons, with countless wins and podiums. In 2014, they won the Manufacturer's Championship to break the Honda's 4-year reign. After just three years of competition, the MG6 GT sealed the title by 95 points at the season finale at Brands Hatch. After MG finished 2nd place in the Manufacturers/Constructors title challenge, they announced a three-year contract extension with Triple Eight Racing in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for the 2016 BTCC campaign until the end of the 2018 season.
The MG brand is currently owned by SAIC Shanghai Motor Corporation Limited (formerly Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation), but its engineering and design center remains in Birmingham in United Kingdom.
