Six months after Nanjing Automobile bought MG Rover, Rover’s future is looking bleak as Nanjing doesn’t seem to be doing anything about restarting Rover’s production.

Nanjing rescued Rover from bankruptcy from USD2.44 billion worth of debts in July 2005 and stated it aimed to produce at least 80,000 sedans and sports cars a year within five years in Britain with 2000 British workers, on top of production in China.

But what’s happening now doesn’t really reflect that plan. The UK factory is being packed up slowly and send to China by boat.
