MG cars will be built in Oklahoma and final licensing agreements are nearly complete, says Marc Nuttle, the chief investor in Oklahoma Global Motors.
Nuttle says he recently returned from weeklong negotiations in China with the Nanjing Automobile Group, which owns the MG brand. He denied reports from the United Kingdom and broadcast by National Public Radio in the United States saying the Oklahoma project is dead.
"The individual who spoke with NPR is not a senior member of the team working with Oklahoma Global Motors and is not currently involved in moving the project forward," Nuttle said in a statement.
"Representatives from NAC MG in the U.K. have confirmed that his statement was not an official announcement by the company and reflected his own opinion and not that of management."
