MG Cyberster Electric Sportscar Spied Undisguised, Launch Likely Soon

MG Cyberster Concept

The production-spec MG Cyberster electric sportscar is expected to be introduced in the coming months

The MG Cyberster concept was revealed at the Shanghai motor show in April 2021 and its production model is not far away from launching globally as evident from the almost undisguised spy pictures that have emerged recently. The sportscar has been caught on camera again without most of its camouflage revealing the exterior and interior details.

It will likely grace the international markets later in the coming months. The British manufacturer was famous for its sportscars back in the day and it could be looking to get back to its roots with the production-spec Cyberster. It comes on the back of the brand’s good volume sales globally as MG looks to take on its more premium rivals.

Previously, the patent images of the MG Cyberster were leaked while the teaser confirmed that it would retain the scissor doors found in the conceptual version. The enormous rear diffuser is accompanied by muscular haunches, a full-width LED tail lamp strip that dips down with unusual arrow graphics, a canvas rooftop, large-sized wheels and prominent side skirts.

The canvas rooftop will retract into the body as the roll hoops can also be seen behind the two-seater configuration. The interior boasts a layered dashboard, a widescreen display, a yoke-shaped leather-wrapped steering wheel, premium surface finishes and trims, etc. It is safe to say that the Cyberster is a watered-down take on the concept yet it looks futuristic.

The base variants of the MG Cyberster will come with a single motor configuration driving only the rear wheels while the dual electric motor setup will be seen in the high-end trims. The debut of the road-going electric sportscar was expected to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the MGB late last year but it did not happen.

Instead, it could be a special launch celebrating the hundredth year of the SAIC-owned company. However, given the regular sighting of the production-ready prototypes, it could be inching closer to launch as well. It could compete against the upcoming electrified Porsche Boxster, Alpine A110 EV and others in markets like Europe.
