The new MG Cyberster EV concept will debut in 2024
In a patent filing published by the China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the specifications and overall design of the new MG Cyberster EV concept have been released. The premium sports car was initially announced in 2021 and is now set to launch in 2024.
MG is best known for their fashionable roadsters built in the 1950s and 1960s. The British brand has mostly manufactured low-cost vehicles ever since SAIC Motor, a Chinese state-owned company, brought the company back to life in 2006.
According to reports, the 14.9-foot-long new MG Cyberster EV concept will have two seats, much like the most well-known models of the company. A steering wheel with a squared-off yoke and many digital screens may be found within the two-door. The car will also come with a folding fabric roof.
Documents state that the battery-powered roadster would have a dual-motor power system. A maximum of 201 horsepower may be generated by the motor mounted on the front axle, while a maximum of 335 horsepower can be generated by the motor mounted on the rear axle.
This would indicate a total output of 536 hp, although it’s not known if both motors can run at their maximum capacity simultaneously. The battery capacity is also not yet known, but we do know that the car will weigh between 4,078 pounds and 4,376 pounds.
Beginning in the summer of 2024, the production model of the new MG Cyberster concept will be sold in the UK and Europe alongside the company’s current lineup of SUVs and sedans. No cost information has been provided, but more than 5,000 potential buyers in China spent around $155 in order to reserve a Cyberster back in 2021.
