Morgan Dealer In China Shuts Down


YANG JIAN writng for Automotive News China reported that Morgan Cars China, British sports car maker Morgan Motor Co.’s sole dealer in China, has stopped marketing, importing and taking orders for the hand-built roadsters.

The importer cited continued issues with vehicle quality and a lack of support from Morgan Motor for the decision to shut down.

Morgan Cars China was incorporated in Beijing by British entrepreneur Jim James along with a Chinese partner.

It was established in 2011 and has sold more than 60 cars in China for Morgan Motor.

After 110 years of family ownership, Morgan Motor sold a majority stake this year to Investindustrial, an Italian investment firm with investments in Aston Martin and motorcycle maker Ducati.
