In Celebration Of MG's 100th Anniversary, The Cyberster EV Sportscar Is Coming In 2024

In celebration of MG’s 100th anniversary, MG Philippines pulled off an electrifying surprise with the confirmation that its all-electric roadster, the MG Cyberster is set to arrive in the first half of 2024.

Drawing inspiration from MG’s heritage of producing fun-to-drive, two-seater sportscars such as the MG TC Midget and MGB, the MG Cyberster offers distinctive touches that call on the brand’s rich history, while combining that with a contemporary design.

Envision by SAIC Motor’s London design studio, the Cyberster features a distinctive low nose, curvaceous rear haunches, and a Kammback (the rear slopes before being abruptly cut off with a vertical or near-vertical surface) tail. Further adding to the drama, it not only has a power soft top that folds up or down in just 10 seconds, but power actuated scissor doors as well. At each corner are 20-inch alloy wheels and high-performance Brembo brakes.

The low-slung proportions of the Cyberster is made possible by a new, bespoke electric vehicle architecture. The handling is fine-tuned by Italian Formula 1 engineer Marco Fainello who worked in Scuderia Ferrari from 1997 to 2004. Fainello also worked on the likes of the Ferrari FXX-K, Ferrari 458 GTE, and Ferrari 488 GT.

MG Philippines has yet to reveal the local Cyberster’s powertrain, but globally it comes in three power outputs.

The “base” Cyberster comes with a single 314 horsepower, 475 Nm motor that drives the rear wheels. This version does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 4.9 seconds. Moving up, there’s a more powerful single-motor variant with 340 horsepower and 475 Nm. This version is quoted as having the same century sprint figures, but thanks to a larger battery (77 kWh versus 64 kWh), it can go longer between charges. Finally, there’s the dual motor all-wheel drive. This one has a combined 544 horsepower and 725 Nm of torque enough to drop the 0 to 100 km/h time to just 3.2 seconds.

Inside, the MG Cyberster, it has triple LCD screens centered towards the driver, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and a slew of physical buttons and controls. The cockpit itself is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip making it ultra-responsive, while the aural experience is enhanced by a Bose sound system.

    1. Looks good but reliability/durability is surely bad

  5. How much will it be priced?
