By Jove, Have MG finally cracked it?

John Sandie 15th August 2019

Macdroitwich news correspondent JOHN SANDIE reports on what is shaping up to be MG Motor’s first BIG TITTED HIT

“Impossible to recommend” and “rotten to the core” screamed the red ink of journalistic reviews of the MG6 as monthly sales figures bobbed around single digits. Panned by reviewers, ignored by customers, MG Motor UK and the 6 were a standing joke by 2012.

Seven years later, MG are in better fettle and the new MG ZS EV has been received rather differently by reviewers. “A real alternative to the Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf” beamed Auto Express and What Car – normally about as pleasant to MGs as a broken glass enema – gave the new car four stars and predicted it to be “the most sought after MG in decades.”

Impending facelift for 2020 - An MG ZS with NEW more powerful engine?

Anne Gossip 29th August 2019

Tittle-tattle merchant Anne Gossip has more Lickbait for Macdroitwich

It seems like only yesterday that the MG ZS crossover hit the UK market, but next week's Chengdu motorshow will see the unveiling of the car's mid-life facelift.

Opening on the 5th September, the 2020 MG ZS will be amongst a raft of new launches at Chengdu. Styling upgrades see the existing car's Mazda-inspired grille makes way for a new honeycomb design more reminiscent of that fitted to the latest Fords as MG's designers endeavour to make the car look sportier. The front bumper also takes on a more aggressive aesthetic.

MG to launch MG5 EV small electric estate in 2020?

Anne Gossip 23rd August 2019

Macdroitwich lickbait correspondent ANNE GOSSIP gives the latest rumoured product from MG

Speculative reports from sources claiming to be familiar with the matter suggest that MG are planning to launch a small electric estate car on the UK market next year.

The new car will almost certainly be closely related – probably even a straight rebadge – to the Chinese market Roewe Ei5, which uses the platform of the Buick Excelle, a distant relative of the current Vauxhall Astra.

MG analysis: Where has it all gone RIGHT for MG Motor UK?

John Sandie 5th September 2019

Macdroitwich news hound, blogger and floppy-trousered Buckfast enthusiast JOHN SANDIE presents his latest MG ponderings

Lacklustre sales, missed targets on sales and dealer network expansion, a marketing team who presided over debacle after debacle after debacle... My two reports analysing MG's performance for the previous versions of the Macdroitwich blog told a very similar story about the brand's UK performance in 2014 and 2016.

The narrative in 2019 is very different...

A birthday - and a cautionary tale

MarinaST 26th August 2019

Macdroitwich contributor and boiler expert MARINAST throws a spanner in the 60th birthday bash works of the MINI

This week (Monday 26th actually) sees the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Mini. To many car enthusiasts the Mini is a thing of wonder and a glorious high point in the history of the UK car industry. But there is a dark side to its existence, it’s something that has nagged at me for many years and it is this.

The Mini killed the company.

Of course it took many decades…

SHE'S ELECTRIC - Plug-In hybrid MG HS enters production – UK sales to come

Anne Gossip 2nd October 2019

Anne Gossip with more LICKBAIT.

MG are continuing to embrace electrified vehicles with the launch of a plug-in hybrid derivative of the MG HS, the MG eHS.

As the first examples of the MG eHS trickled off the line of a newly opened factory in the coastal city of Ningde, SAIC confirmed that the MG eHS will be exported from the plant to us in the UK.
