A Message from the MD

‘Despite MG being a relatively new brand that has only entered the Middle East market back in 2015, it has been remarkable for me to witness its growth over the years.

Today the brand has a solid 4.7% market share and aiming for over 5% in 2022.

The Middle East continues to be an important market for MG and for SAIC Motor. We are competing with the biggest automotive brands. Our promise is to work closely with our distributors to further build the brand image and increase awareness of our model line-up. Network development is a major area of our focus. We will continue to expand to new markets and bring world-class facilities closer to our customers.

I am confident that the new MG models that we will be bringing to the region will not only satisfy the demands of our customers but will also help us elevate our current lineup even further.
