MG teases all-new Cyberster concept
The Chinese parent company to MG motors, SAIC, recently teased a series of images of MG’s all-new electric Cyberster concept. The Cyberster is believed to be the successor to the MG TF roadster that was discontinued in 2011 is a two-door sports car. Not much can be inferred from the digital renders of the Cyberster, except the fact that it possesses a long hood with oval headlamps and a DRL element splitting the headlight into two halves. The rear-end is sharply raked, and there is an illuminated MG badge on the front and the rear.
There has been no official statement about the car making its way to the production line yet, though it might just be a sign of what to expect from future MG cars. However, the Cyberster is expected to be offered with 5G connectivity and level three autonomous driving technology. MG has not shared any information about the powertrain of the Cyberster but is believed to be based on the E-Motion, a four-seater all-electric sports coupe concept that was showcased at the Shanghai Motor Show in 2017. In fact, the eMotion was expected to go into production later this year. However, speculations would have us believe that the production of the E-Motion production has been pushed forward to 2021 due to the ongoing covi-19 pandemic.
Looking at the digital renders, it is pretty evident that the Cyberster will not be hitting the roads anytime soon, especially not in India. However, MG Motor India has a lot of interesting SUVs up their sleeve already — the Hector Plus will likely be the first launch to come from the British brand, followed by the Gloster which is expected to go up against the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.
