Morris Garages, better known as MG, was a British automotive marque registered by the now-defunct a British sports car manufacturer MG Car Company Limited, in the 1920s. In 1952, MG underwent many changes in ownership starting with Morris merging with Austin within the British Motor Corporation Limited.
Since its birth, the original MG marque was in continuous use, excluding the duration of WWII. The British Motor Corporation (BMC) competition department had a reputation for producing many winning race and rally cars until MGB ceased production in 1980.
The MG marque was used on sportier versions of Montego, Austin Rover's Metro, and Maestro ranges between 1982 and 1991. It wasn't until 1992, that the MG marque was resurrected with the MG RV8, which was an updated MGB Roadster featuring a Rover V8 engine. The MG F was added in the summer of 1995.
In the early 2000s, MG was owned by MG Rover Group, which it had merged with, in 2005. The Nanjing Automobile Group eventually purchased the assets and MG brand, and in 2007, production restarted in China. In 2011, the first model from MG in the UK was released after a 16-year hiatus. Now, the MG ZS SUV, which is still produced by NAG, is the current MG on the market today.
In terms of automotive history, MG has surpassed many of its competitors. It has proved itself and shown that it can survive the waves of time. Whether youíre a longtime lover of MG or have just purchased your first MG, remember if you ever need help, having a MG repair manual on hand can make any repair job go easier.
