MG unwraps its X-Motion concept at Beijing Motor Show

25th April 2018

MG has unveiled its latest concept, the stunning X-Motion, at the Beijing Motor Show today (April 25).

The MG X-Motion is a large SUV, a product that has been part of MG’s plans since 2017. SUVs continue to represent a growth sector in the industry and this latest concept is a reflection of global customer demands.

Crowned as the ‘MG Range Captain’, the concept has been designed to be the largest model in MG’s growing product portfolio. It’s certainly a very attractive design ,with details and features similar to the company’s striking E-Motion electric sports car concept of 2017. The bold, aggressive front end continues with the new MG family face as seen on the recently-launched ZS and the China-market MG6, while the flared arches, ‘Hurricane’ aluminium wheels, custom LED lighting, sleek lines and neat styling cues contribute to an upmarket, prestige look.

Based upon the same underpinnings and running gear as the China-market Roewe RX8, the X-motion will include full connectivity. And with MG’s parent company SAIC Motor having shown commitment to hybrid and full electric technology in various overseas markets, there’s also a good chance the X-motion could be available with alternative powertrains alongside a regular petrol option.

Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “We’re very excited to see X-motion unveiled in Beijing. This is further evidence of the emergence of MG as a serious player in the global market with advanced tech and stunning design. We’re yet to decide whether X-motion will come to the UK, but we can already see that MG’s design language and value-for-money approach are finding favour with British buyers who are choosing MG in ever-growing numbers”.
