MG, the British auto brand that is owned by China’s Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) has unveiled a brand new concept in Beijing. Called the MG ZERO the concept was developed by MG’s Global Design team led by British MG Design Director Anthony Williams-Kenny who is based in Birmingham, something that was heavily emphasized in the press release.

The press release which did not point out what powers the concept revealed that the ZERO “previews the design direction of the brand and demonstrates how MG can expand into this high- volume sector of the market.”

It is a compact concept which is 4 meters in length and is expected to feature small displacement engines both normally-aspirated and force-inducted if it goes into production. A report by ChinaCarTimes revealed that it could be sold in China as the Roewe 150 or the MG2 joining the MG TF and the MG6 which will be launched in the UK by the end of this year. An image gallery can be found after the jump.
