MG Cyberster finally debuts at 2023 Shanghai Auto Show. It is the first fully electric sports car for MG. And marks the return of MG brand to its sportscar roots. It is spied on multiple times ahead of its global debut. Now MG has taken the wraps on Cyberster. Complete specs and performance numbers are not yet out.

Chinese MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology) has revealed some key figures about MG Cyberster. Also, this is not a vehicle that will solely cater to the Dragon’s den. Instead, MG intends to launch it in key automotive markets like Europe and UK in 2024. There is a tiny possibility of it launching in India too, if deemed worthy by MG in the future.

Back To The Sports Car Roots

Morris Garages or MG, is renowned for its sports cars. Last produced sports car is MG TF in 2011. MG has thrived under Chinese State-owned SAIC-GM-Wuling and has returned to its sports car roots. Cyberster is the brand’s first-ever electric sports car. It looks very exotic and European in its design language.

Cyberster is a two-seat sports car with a convertible fabric roof. MG’s video demonstrates the elegant and classy way it neatly tucks behind the seats. It gets scissor doors too, popularly known as Lamborghini doors. The aggressive front, flared wheel arches and wide rear haunches lend it a very sporty character.

Aerodynamic cuts and creases add a touch of sophistication. 20” alloy wheels look very swanky. The rear deck finished in gloss Black, houses an MG logo. At the rear, we can see thin connected LED tail lights and arrow-shaped LED elements, doubling as turn indicators. There is no doubt that MG Cyberster is one of the most sensational electric sports cars.

On the inside, we have a leather-clad interior. MG is likely to offer multiple interior trim and colour choices. Steering yoke and triple display layout takes center stage. Despite steering yokes proving to be inconvenient, they offer un-interrupted view at the triple screens.

536 Electric Horses and AWD Setup

Complete spec sheet is not yet out. Chinese MIIT has revealed key info regarding MG Cyberster. For starters, Cyberster is 4535 mm long, 1913 mm wide, 1329 mm tall, and has a wheelbase measuring 2690 mm. Because of its heavy electric powertrain, MG Cyberster weighs 1850 kg.
