    Linky? I'm guessing you didn't just write that. Wink

    Ten new models!?

    New energy Roewes - E50 new variant?, hybrid 350? - improved 550/750 hybrids? (from 2-4 models)

    Energy-saving MG concept - a small E50-sized car? MG1? Something bigger? (3-5 models)

    Maxus MPV (4-6 models)

    Leaves between 6 and 4 other models - MG SUV? UK-spec MG3? UK-spec MG3 XROSS? Continental MG6 and MG3? or Australian MG6? MG5 facelift? MG350 was facelifted recently, was the Roewe too? Facelifted 550, 750 or 950?

    Hmm, My list:

    Maxus - MPV Concept
    Roewe - Roewe W3 SUV, Updated Roewe 550 (Plug in hybrid version)
    MG - MG Concept, MG SUV (unless that is the concept?), MG5 Turbo

    I'm not sure all those count as new models and am guessing the rest of the 10 are from the JV brands.

    The turbo version is likely to launch at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month, what other MG’s are coming at the auto show we don’t yet know. Possibly a production ready SUV? Sister brand Roewe could also be rocking an MPV or crossover version themselves.

    Shame there isn't a UK Motor Show!

    Closest thing to a UK motor show is Goodwood and MG did attend that with the MG6. They also tour the country with the BTCC and had the MG Zero Concept at the MPH Show.


    Pat - that MG5 needs a wash before the show!

    I thought it was either camouflage or my screen TBH.

    Remind me - wasn't it the MG5 which never got a formal launch?
