Earlier this week we reported the announcement that Nanjing Automobile Group is to manufacture MG cars in the US. Nanjing has now planned a conference in Oklahoma to make their announcement to build a newly designed MG TF Coupe there, starting in 2008. A convertible version is to be manufactured back in Longbridge, England, and three other models, probably sedans, will be built in China.

Construction of the first Chinese car factory in the US will create employment opportunities and goodwill towards the Chinese automakers. At least this way the Yanks can’t complain about the quality of cars being built by Chinese companies.
