The historic MG car brand is set to return to Saudi Arabia following an agreement between SAIC Motor and Taajeer Group.

The partnership between international car manufacturer SAIC Motor and Saudi automotive services company Taajeer Group will bring a new line-up of models to the Gulf kingdom.

Taajeer Group said it will introduce the new model line-up of sedans and SUVs that will go on sale across a number of dealerships in the eastern, western and central regions of the country.

Taajeer Group will also be providing an array of services for new and existing customers of the MG brand, it added.

Matt Lei, vice president SAIC Motor International, said: “We are experiencing positive growth globally, and view Saudi Arabia as a very important market for MG.”

Taajeer Group chairman, Dr Saleh Jameel Malaikah, added: “We feel that MG is in a strong position to compete with other manufacturers in the kingdom. The MG brand will be an extension of our automobile sector and services which will continue to bring success to the group at a local and regional level.”

SAIC Motor, MG’s parent company, posted global sales revenues of $113.86 billion last year and is investing heavily in the MG brand.

This year will see the introduction of two brand-new models for the Middle East – the ZS and RX5 – as well as a refreshed new design for the GS model.
