In recent years, China-owned MG has led electric car innovation. In 2020, it released its first electric SUV in Australia.
The brand just released the MG4 electric hatchback, which adds some sportiness to its electric range. Now, it’s taking things to a whole new level by starting pre-sales for the Cyberster, its upcoming electric roadster.
A new story from cnevpost says that MG has begun taking pre-orders in China for the two-door electric convertible sportscar that the company plans to deliver.
The Cyberster concept was first shown by MG at the Shanghai car show in 2021. For two and a half years, MG has sought Chinese and foreign buyers to help mass produce the idea.
MG4 Single-Motor Rear-Wheel Drive Models Coming to Australia
It will come in three different styles, two of which will have a single motor and rear-wheel drive. This looks like the MG4 in its single-motor models that are sold in Australia right now.
These single-motor versions come in two different power outputs. The less powerful one has a power output of 231 kW, while the slightly more powerful one has a power output of up to 250 kW.
There is also a version with two motors, which gives it a huge power boost with 400 kW between the two motors. It can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 km/h.
The Tesla Model 3 Performance car, on the other hand, can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and can reach a top speed of 261 km/h in track mode. On paper, the Model 3 Performance looks like a very efficient car, since its dual-motor engine gives it a much higher top speed with only 393 kW of power.
Dimension-wise, the MG Cyberster comes in at:
- 4,535 mm in length
- 1,913 mm in width
- 1,329 mm in height
The MG4 hatchback is only 4,287 millimeters long, 248 millimeters shorter than the Cyberster. The new convertible’s wider track makes it look more aggressive than the MG4.
MG has already announced that the MG Cyberster will be available in worldwide markets, including the United Kingdom, where clients may preorder the new two-door convertible sportscar in right-hand drive.
The Cyberster may be one of numerous UK models debuting in Australia the next year.
MG’s all-electric sports car, the MG4 Xpower, was spotted in Sydney and will have to do for now.
