Previews new range-topping model
The MG X-Motion concept has been given a full debut at the 2018 Beijing motor show.
Stylistically, the concept takes themes established by last year's E-Motion electric coupe and scales them to suit a crossover.
Up front, the X-Motion features a fascia heavily inspired by Mazda, while the "stellar field" grille insert calls to mind a number of Mercedes-Benz models. There's also more than a hint of Infiniti in the profile and headlights.
Both MG and SAIC, its parent company, have provided almost no hard details about the X-Motion or its future production progeny.
According to the Chinese automaker, the X-Motion is a "world-leader in the field of mainstream SUV design as it utilises exceptionally sensual surface and shadow shoulder".
MG also promises the X-Motion will feature "advanced technology" and "include full connectivity".
SAIC says it was "driven by a commitment to innovative transformation", and the X-Motion concept has an "electric powertrain, interconnection, intelligence and information sharing".
Despite that, the X-Motion concept features dual exhaust tips out the back, suggesting a hybrid drivetrain utilising an internal-combustion engine of some form.
The production version of the X-Motion is expected to go into production in 2019, and will go on sale first in China. It's not known whether the range-topping crossover will be sold in more developed markets.
Daniel Gregorious, head of sales and marketing at MG UK, said the X-Motion is proof MG is "a serious player in the global market with advanced tech and stunning design", but admitted the UK arm was had yet "to decide whether X-motion will come to the UK".
