MG to expand its SUV lineup at both ends

MG to expand its SUV lineup at both ends

A larger GS and a smaller, sub-XS SUVs are coming, MG told Autocar at the XSs debut at the London motor show

MGs seven-seat SUV will be a larger version of its GS, while a smaller, supermini-sized SUV will sit at the other end of the brands SUV lineup.

Speaking at the London motor show, MGs UK sales and marketing boss, Matthew Cheyne, detailed the plans following the UK debut of the XS, the brands Nissan Juke-sized SUV.

The two new SUVs will bookend the brands SUV lineup, and will take the fledgling Sino-British brand into two new territories. The GS becomes a seven-seat SUV to rival the Nissan X-Trail in two years, when the model will be overhauled, rather than refreshed.

These new SUVs, along with the 3 supermini and upcoming 6 saloon replacement, will make MGs lineup five-strong, with the E-Motion electric sports car sitting atop the range as a halo model.

This five-car product line will include plug-in hybrid and electric variants on the non E-Motion range, which will start with a plug-in hybrid XS, before a full EV XS comes in 18 months to 2 years time, says Cheyne.

The XS spearheads MGs new design direction, with Jaguar-like grille and stylistic taillights; this design will first spread to the 3 when facelifted in the next 12 months, before other models adopt its look.

Cheyne aims for MG to be selling up to 25,000 cars by 2020 or 2021.

MG's plans seem sensible. The company just needs to start spending more.
