MG Motor invests in UK facilities

MG Motor has announced that it new 'state-of-the-art' test facilities have been installed at its UK’s Longbridge site, which it states demonstrates its 'commitment to the future and the quality of its products'.

GB£1.2m (US$1.5m) has been invested to install a fifth engine test facility and to further enhance the vehicle rolling road on-site at the Longbridge site. The engine test facility marks a 'significant improvement' over the existing test resources in place, and is said to bring with it a major step change for MG Motor’s test and development capability.

Up until now, vehicle emission testing on a rolling road has been out-sourced, but this investment means that engineers can carry out the required tests in the correct temperature controlled environment with full emission measurement capability. They also benefit from having the technical centre on-site for continuous product development.

"The money that’s been invested into this new testing facility shows a real commitment to the future of MG. This additional test cell and enhanced rolling road allows us to continue to get the very best performance and economy for MG products, said James Scott, powertrain test senior manager. "This facility increases the global test and development capability which allows even more collaborative powertrain testing and development with our colleagues in China."
