MG reveal first pictures of their new Cyberster electric car due to be shown at the Shanghai Motor Show in April
New MG pays homage to the original MGB Roadster but comes in a planet-friendly zero-emissions package that will offer a range of up to 500 miles (800km)
MG has released their vision of the future with their new Cyberster concept electric car that’s set to debut at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show later this month. The Cyberster has been developed by the team at the MG Advanced Design Centre in London. It’s a two-door, two-seater sports car recalling the brand’s tradition, drawing a number of styling cues from the classic MGB Roadster.
The new zero-emissions MG Cyberster features classic round MG headlights, coupled with a slim grille design, along with interactive ‘Magic Eye’ headlights that open when switched on. Other striking details of the MG Cyberster are the 'laser belt' LED strip down the side of the car and the outline of the door, which follows the direction of the LED strip.
Its powerful sports car profile has a distinct two-stage shoulder line, with a flattened ‘kamm tail’ rear. The tail lamps are of LED construction and are integrated flat into the rear of the car, projecting a digital image that echoes MG’s British heritage.
Carl Gotham, director of SAIC Design Advanced London, said: “The Cyberster is a bold statement that looks strongly into MG’s future, touching on our heritage but more importantly building on our cutting edge technology and advanced design. Sports cars are the lifeblood of the MG DNA and Cyberster is a hugely exciting concept for us.”
The Cyberster’s intelligent all-electric architecture will enable a range of 500 miles (800km) and will accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100kph) in less than three seconds. It will also feature 5G interconnectivity. The new Cyberster will join MG’s current line up of electric vehicles including the established and award winning MG ZS EV, the game-changing All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in.
It’s great to see MG continuing to evolve and increase its range of electric cars. The British brand is proving that zero-emissions cars are the way forward and believe half of its sales will be electric this year.
More information on the Cyberster will be revealed when the model is shown at the Shanghai Motor Show (April 21-28, 2021).
