    SAIC ambitious goal of 6 million annual production have been identified, but how many of own brand? Has not been previously disclosed. In the recently held Shanghai Automotive dealers at the annual meeting Passenger Vehicle Company, SAIC president Chen Hong for the first time on the passenger filed a 2015 goal of 700,000 units in sales. And Chih-Hsin Chen, general manager of Shanghai Automotive announced passenger cars in 2011 sales target has grow to 230,000.

    Last year, SAIC own-brand passenger car sales exceeded 160,000, an increase of more than 78% in high-end brands in the top of the list. According to the Shanghai Automotive's product planning, were launched this year will be the new Roewe SUV and the sixth generation of MG3. According to SAIC's second Five-Year Plan, the future average car every year, Shanghai will launch a three-four cars, one of which co-developed with GM's new Roewe 750, will also be in the next two to three years to market.

    With the wealth of models, SAIC own brand platform strategy for the second integration is also taking the steps. This reporter learned that, at present, Pukou own brand production base, has been carrying out the transformation of the production line this year in July, the Roewe 750 in the modified models will be officially settled here, and the MG7 series will be collinear production.

    After the integration of the NAC, SAIC platform production in accordance with the requirements for the integration of the production base. Basically the same platform product in a production base production. Nanjing, which produce small engines and small engine to match the Roewe 350 is also placed in the production base in Nanjing.

    According to the plan, the future of the MG-based Roewe 350 hatchback, and shared with the 350 platform will MG5 new products into production base in Nanjing. SAIC chairman Hu Maoyuan said, and now half of the entire production of SAIC are outside of the production base in Shanghai, and Nanjing, SAIC will be the base outside of the most important addition to the Shanghai production base for passenger cars.

    However, due to historical issues, MG7 series production in Nanjing, with the platform, but in Yizheng Roewe 750 production. Last year due to construction of the fifth Shanghai Volkswagen plant in Yizheng, the Roewe 750 to move smoothly in Nanjing, to achieve a common line with the MG7 series production. "Pukou base has achieved a good start last year, assumed the Pukou base capacity of 70,000, 100,000 units this year, production is expected to red." Said informed sources.

    SAIC Yizheng are still part of the production base, the new SUV listed Yizheng base is still being produced. The sea port base of the production associated with the platform MG6 and Roewe 550; MG3, on behalf of Shanghai Automotive technical content of the new energy vehicles will be listed next couple of years and universal cooperation with new generation engines 750 and MG7 Department will also be produced in Shanghai. Truly sub-platform high-efficiency production.

    Christmas Eve last year, coincided with the third anniversary of NAC SAIC integration, SAIC and Nanjing Municipal Government has signed a significant document "the development of SAIC, Nanjing base memorandum of cooperation", according to the memorandum, the next five years, SAIC will In Nanjing, the implementation of the "four" planning: re-invest 100 billion, the formation of Nanjing, the production base of 1 million unit capacity, to achieve annual sales income of 100 billion, driving the formation of a trade in parts and automotive service industry base.

    Earlier, Hu Maoyuan said the production capacity of 1 million new main distribution facility in Nanjing, Shanghai Volkswagen, Pukou base and Iveco commercial vehicle brands in three sections.

    Transferring to the forthcoming Roewe 750 Nanjing, SAIC is also seen as a first step in the implementation of four. Base of 1 million goal in Nanjing, the SAIC's own brand Pukou base during the second five-goal is 300,000, is currently in production Pukou base has been planning for SAIC Class A for the largest share of the market, the Roewe 350. With the arrival of 750, will directly bring Pukou-based production and production capacity increased at the same, after all, is the SAIC Roewe 750 launched its own brand products in a most high-end.

    This reporter learned that, in addition to base its own brand, Shanghai Volkswagen, Volkswagen brand's senior four-car plant in Nanjing is also under production, while production capacity is limited due Iveco has been prepared to "move", as the Nanjing government has Jiangpu Iveco found a "home."

    Didn't MG7 production already move from Pukou to Lingang?

    Having said which, it seems the MG7 is the car which above all fails to fit into the MG brand in China. With its tiny sales, it seems the MG limousine (which has become the last MGR dinosaur) must be for the chop...

    There were reports that the MG7 had moved, I have never been convinced that it fully moved.

    Anyway, it will be the new model MG7 that comes back to Pukou with the new R750.

    Judging by the Chinese comments I have seen, an MG limousine is hard to sell (although MGE did profile a small businessman who bought one in grey).

    Can it be that in China the MG7 must be particularly sporty to distinguish it from the Roewe?
