Chinese brand MG has previewed its new Cyberster roadster in a new video, with the new electric roadster set to arrive before 2024.
Posting the video on social media, MG showcased the future EV’s sleek body styling, electric canvas roof, yoke steering wheel and two-tone seats.
Elements of the car such as the rear lights have been designed using inspiration from the Union Jack flag, highlighting the brand’s British past.
The video also suggested the drop-top EV could have scissor doors.
MG’s two-seater electric sports car was first previewed in 2021 and was only considered for production after 5,000 potential buyers expressed an interest in the concept.
The Cyberster’s recently revealed design patents show that the roadster will effectively serve as an electric rival to the Mazda MX-5, while competing with other ICE-powered sports cars.
MG has offered no insight into the Cyberster’s powertrain, pricing or performance, but said its concept was based on a bespoke EV architecture, offering a claimed range of 497 miles and a 0-62mph time of less than 3.0 secs.
The Chinese firm recently unveiled the MG 4 hatchback which will arrive in the UK at the end of the year. The MG 4 will be the first of a number of EVs based on the new Modular Scalable Platform – from MG’s parent firm SAIC – which is likely to be used by the Cyberster.
This could mean that the future roadster could be offered with either a 120kW or 150kW single-motor, rear-wheel-drive powertrain, with a range topping 330kW, dual-motor set-up also an option.
The MG 4 is available with either a 51kWh or 64kWh battery which should offer a range of more than 200 miles.
