'New' MG announces record sales

Mark Nichol

MG 2.0 is proving not to be the passing fad that some thought it might be, with the company announcing record sales in January 2012...of 107 cars.

It's a drop in the car ocean (Ford UK sold that many cars every four hours during the same month), but the company is pressing on, and backed by a behemoth, too: Chinese parent company SAIC sold four million cars in 2011. That's more like it.
