JOHANNESBURG - It's been nearly two years since the return of British brand MG to South Africa. Its initial offering comprised mainly the MG6 fastback and sedan but the range is about to expand.

During those two years MG has built 15 dealers across South Africa. As the dealer network has expanded, so has the management. Craig Lanham-Love has been appointed chief operating officer of Mandarin Motors, which covers MG and Maxus.

Mandarin Motors is CMH’s motor vehicle and import distribution division with Derrick Bishop taking charge as general manager. Husband and wife team Alan and Terry Horseman are executive directors of Mandarin Motors while Lionel Hillary heads up dealer development.


With the company poised to launch its next generation of vehicles, South Africans can look forward to the arrival of the MG3 later in 2013, with at least two new products joining the line-up in 2014. It will initially only be available with a four-cylinder petrol engine, mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

Until the arrival of the MG3, the automaker is focusing on its MG6, which is available in both hatchback and sedan versions with prices from R239 900 for the 1.8T Comfort model with a three-year or 90 000km service plan.
