MG Cyberster Electric Roadster Could Go Into Production

• by Andrei Nedelea

MG is a historic British automaker with a long history (dating back to the 1920s) of making pleasant two-seater cars. However, after changing owners several times, the brand got diluted and the MG badge ended up on vehicles perhaps it should have never been put on. Furthermore, the company's last two-seater, the F/TF (a Mazda MX-5/Miata rival), was not very good and it spelled the end of MG as a maker of sports cars.

However, there is a chance we could see a new roadster from MG, this time fully-electric one previewed by the Cyberster concept shown at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. The Cyberster doesn't look like any older MG (it's not a reinterpretation of an older design), but it's definitely not bad and the specs aren't either.

According to the manufacturer, it will be able to sprint to sixty in under 3 seconds and offer an NEDC range of up to 500 miles (800 km).
