The first generation of MG Motor’s new MG One has arrived in the Middle East. Available in three trims at Inter Emirates Motors, a subsidiary of Ali and Sons Holding LLC and the official distributor of MG in the UAE, the new 2023 MG One will strengthen the British-born brand’s model portfolio, offering customers even more style, technology and traveling comfort at value prices.
The MG One harnesses the latest technology with the introduction of SAIC Motor’s self-developed new modular SIGMA architecture platform, housing a 1.5 Turbo unit delivering 181 hp and maximum torque of 285 Nm — powering the vehicle to a top speed of 195 km/h. All models are equipped with an innovative seven-speed continuously variable transmission for smoother, more efficient gear changes and optimum reliability. The arrival of MG’s newest SUV is expected to help the brand reinforce its position in the top six Middle East carmakers.
The SIGMA architecture platform has been designed to optimize interior space, with up to 70 percent efficiency. The architecture compresses the mechanical space to help balance the exterior and interior space. As an all-in-one modular platform, it can house a range of all-electric, and hybrid powertrains, as well as regular internal combustion engines.
This advanced electric architecture creates a smart car experience for MG’s new generation of vehicles.
Tom Lee, managing director of MG Motor’s Middle East, said: “The all-new MG One is the latest in our SUV offerings, which have propelled the MG brand into one of the most popular in the region. This tech-focused compact SUV not only complements our current product lineup but also provides customers with an exciting new option priced competitively.”
Mohamed Al-Daheri, managing director, motors division, Ali and Sons Holding LLC, said: “As part of our strategy to better serve our customers and enhance the MG experience, we are focusing on expanding our presence in the UAE.”
In addition to our existing locations, we plan to open a new showroom in Dubai, a service center in Al-Quoz, a new showroom in Abu Dhabi, and a new sales, service, and spares facility in Fujairah.”
The demand for MG vehicles in the UAE continues to increase. In fact, Inter Emirates Motors has plans to continue to expand and provide end-to-end service to customers at every touch point throughout every emirate.
