MGs from 1924 to 2017

The MG Marque started as upgraded Morris cars and developed into a niche marque.  

The MG factory stopped production of MGs during the war,  converting the assembly line to produce war products.

Following a number of turbulent years in the British motor industries, involving the partial nationalisation of the majority of British marques, the MG factory stopped making roadsters and coupes in 1980 and concentrated on small sedans (Metro, Maestro and Montego).  The Rover Group in 1992 recommenced building roadster MGs, namely MG Rover V8 and later the MGF and MG TF.

The MG brand has had various owners over the years: William Morris (1924-35), Morris Motors Limited (1935-52), British Motor Corporation (BMC)(1952-67), British Motor Holdings (1967-68), British Leyland Motor Corporation (1968-75), British Leyland (1975-86), Rover Group (British Gov., British Aerospace and BMW) (1986-2000), MG Rover Group (Phoenix Consortium)  (2000-05), NAC and SAIC (Shanghai Auto Ind Corp) (2005-current).
