MG Unveils Electric Roadster Before Tesla

Design of New Sports Car Leaks; Impressive!

Glimpses of the revolutionary MG Cyberster have been procured from a recent reveal on China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology website. With an official unveiling taking place at the Shanghai Motor Show in the coming days, attendees will be the first to get a true sense of this cutting-edge model.

According to the recently released details, the Cyberster will be provided in both rear-wheel and all-wheel configurations. The dual-electric motor version can reach total of 536 horsepower. And for consumers looking for something a bit less potent, the single-motor rear-wheel drive model is said to offer 310 horsepower.

No exact specifics about either the battery life or distance were revealed, however, we do understand that the highest velocity it can reach is 124 mph (presumably restricted), and supposedly, it should take it less than three seconds to achieve 62 mph.

The lithium-ion battery pack which is produced by SAIC of China, gives the Cyberster dimensionally impressive measurements of 178.5 inches long, 75.3 inches wide and 52.3 inches tall, with a wheelbase of 105.9 inches. To put this into perspective, the contemporary Mazda MX-5 Miata is 154.1 inches in length and 68.3 inches across, making it appear much smaller than the Cyberster. Alas, the Cyberster is heavy — weighing 4,079 pounds compared to the 2,332 pounds of the nimble Japanese roadster.

Once upon a time, it was anticipated that Tesla would be the first to create a fully electric roadster that was unlike the usual revamp of the Lotus Elise. Nevertheless, the original Tesla still exists with much sturdiness.

In 2017, the second-generation Roadster, in its conception state, was initially presented to the public. Elon Musk, Chief Executive of Tesla, hinted that output might start sometime this year. When the fresh Roadster (if and whenever it appears) will be noticeably quicker than the Cyberster. Musk has formerly highlighted potential performance figures of 2.1 seconds 0-60 mph and a peak rate beyond 250 mph.

The Cyberster may not have the new Roadster’s remarkable performance specifications, however, likely it will be much more reasonably priced and accessible. As depicted in the image beneath, the Cyberster will offer various customisation options. Taking into account the Chinese and English labels, the Cyberster may very well be exported to Britain and Australia.

It is projected that the Roadster will not come cheap, with an estimated cost of at least $200,000. Furthermore, its production will be limited. In the next few days, we anticipate discovering the price tag along with supplemental information regarding the Cyberster. Regrettably, because MG does not exist in the US market, this automobile will not be available for purchase in America.

The MG marque was acquired by Chinese automaker SAIC Motor 16 years ago, following the failure of the British-held MG Rover Group – the final mass producer of automobiles controlled in the UK. The securing of MG by said Chinese firm at the time was met with a great deal of uproar considering how near to the nation’s heart it was held. It proved to be a worthwhile move however and MG now manufactures seven contemporary models; sales are even positive in Britain, where it all started. Taking in the scope of its autos, one can’t help but detect the deficiency of aPerformance edition, an omissionl made all the more lamentable due to the significant part of sports cars played in MG’s history.

The unveiling of the Cyberster makes evident that MG is reverting to its roadster line of origin.
