New small hatch signals MG's intention to move into high-volume segments. ChinaCarTimes reports the model may make it to market there as the MG2 or the Roewe 150.

MG has unveiled the MG ZERO concept car at the Beijing International Auto show.

The MG ZERO is a U.K.-designed concept car from the British brand's director of design Anthony Williams. The model is a compact, measuring 4 m in length, and is intended to push MG to expand into the high-volume segments of small-to-medium sized hatches.

Distinguishing the car is the high-tech interior and an inventive use of red-color lighting to create a special ambiance inside the cabin.

MG is now owned by Chinese automaker Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). ChinaCarTimes reports that the model may one day make it to market there as the Roewe 150 or the MG2. The Roewe brand is a SAIC marque derived from the Rover assets it inherited when it purchased the former MG Rover. The Rover brand is now owned by TATA.
