Production of the first all-new MG in 16 years, the MG 6, has commenced at MG Motor UKís factory.†

Customer car number 1 came off the final assembly line in the Car Assembly Building at the firmís plant in Birmingham on Wednesday 13th April 2011. This marks the start of a new era in the 87 year history of the iconic British brand.

The so-called customer car #1 was driven off the production line by worker Lisa Ponter.

The first deliveries to customers will take place next month.

The sports fastback model was designed and engineered by a team of professionals at the UK plant.

Three trim models of the 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol MG 6 are available with UK prices ranging from £15,495 to £18,995 for the top-of-the-range highly-equipped TSE model.

There are currently no plans to bring the MG 6 to Australia.

In other MG news, a total of just 8* new MGs were registered in the UK during March 2011. This brings the year-to-date total to 18*, compared to 52* for March 2010 and 82* for YTD 2010.

These figures highlight the importance to MG of meeting market success with their new 1.8 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder 6.
