New MG sports car is coming, after more a decade's wait

Following the death of the MG TF in 2011, a new MG roadster seemed unlikely under its new Chinese owners at SAIC Motor. The marque is better known nowadays for its European-market crossovers and MG5 electric estate car, its historic homes in Abingdon and Longbridge demolished after the collapse of MG Rover in 2005.

Really!? Wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. Electric and Chinese both rub me the wrong way.

I guess some one will want a car that looks like an asian sneaker with lights, powered by the traditional Chinese fading quality battery. I suppose in the end the environment fanatics will force me by lack choice to support them in some way just the same.

Sounds to me, from reading the comments--that a LOT of Readers don't like Chinese anything and they don't like EVs. Hummmm! Methinks that Hagerty might want to moderate the kind of articles it promotes.

If a Chinese built vehicle is what you want, you should start packing your belongings and head for the airport. They might not like you, but will surely take your US dollars.
