MG lands 'concept' award
27 April 2012
MG has beaten off the likes of Mercedes, Lamborghini and Honda to land a prestigious design award at the Beijing Motor Show.
The British manufacturer has claimed the coveted 'Best Concept' award for its Icon vehicle and received great praise from judges at the awards ceremony which included officials from Autoweek, the US' leading automotive magazine.
While the Icon is not in production, and there are no plans afoot for any wide scale distribution, it was commended for taking inspiration from the classic MG vehicles of the past to create an innovative SUV model.
Anthony Williams-Kenny, British director of the company, said: "It's a great honour to win this very important award, particularly when the judges put the MG Icon ahead of so many other famous brands. The judges obviously shared our enthusiasm and vision for MG which is one of the best loved brands in the world."
MG, a former subsidiary of the Midlands-based company Rover, is now part of SAIC Motor.
