MG is to return to sportscar production following the launch of its new two-seat high-performance Cyberster EV.

The vehicle is expected to arrive for sale in the UK and Europe in the summer of 2024, and will include an all-electric powertrain and contemporary cabin featuring cutting-edge driver technology.

Its styling pays homage to roadsters from MG’s heritage, with a long bonnet, low nose and curved bodywork, while also introducing new features such as scissor doors and Kammback rear design.

Previously disclosed information from patents suggests there will be a single-motor RWD version producing 314hp and a dual-motor AWD configuration with 544hp.

It is also expected to have an electric range of 500 miles on a single charge and a 0-62mph time of less than three seconds.

Carl Gotham, Advanced Design director of the company’s Marylebone design studio in London, said, “Our intention was to create a completely new roadster ready for a new generation of sportscar drivers and which opens a bold and compelling new chapter for MG.

“The focus for Cyberster was to create a design that was respectful of the brand’s illustrious past and to bring back that sporting bloodline, while also being absolutely clear that it should be modern and forward-facing like the MG of today, completely in-tune with the rapid transition to electric vehicles.”

Guy Pigounakis, MG Motor UK’s commercial director, said, “This is the perfect time to introduce an MG that completely reconnects with our performance DNA and is designed to enthral the driver on every level. MG is all set for an electric, sporting future and it is the perfect way to start celebrating our 100th anniversary.”
