MG has released the first official photographs of its Cyberster concept car, which will be making its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show (April 21-28, 2021). The Cyberster’s all-electric architecture will enable an approximate EV range of 800km (500 miles) and deliver a 0-100km/h time (0-62mph) of less than three seconds.
The Cyberster – developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Centre in London – is a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster while also ushering in new high-tech features, including an interactive gaming cockpit and 5G connectivity.
MG is backed by SAIC Motor, one of the world’s largest automotive companies.
Carl Gotham, Director of SAIC Design Advanced London, says: “The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future, touching on our heritage but more importantly building on our technology and advanced design. Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
MG currently offers three plug-in models in the UK – the established MG ZS EV, the All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in. Its UK Advanced Design HQ employs over 40 designers.
