After making its debut in the UK, the MG Cyberster two-door electric roadster is now available to order in China. Offered in three trim levels, the Cyberster can be reserved for 10,000 yuan ($1,370) with deliveries scheduled for the year-end. Priority automobile pickup privileges and a unique package are available to those who reserved it in advance. Deliveries to other countries will begin in 2024.
The sleekly styled electric roadster was inspired by the one and only MGB roadster that was manufactured from 1962 until 1980. Styling cues include tear-shaped headlamps with LED units, sporty bumpers, scissor doors, and a folding roof.
The soft top of the Cyberster comprises three layers of fabric. It can be folded and unfolded in 8 seconds. And you can also operate it while driving at a speed of 50 km/h. The Cyberster sports a single taillight unit in the back as well as LED components that resemble the Union Jack.
Inside, the dashboard features a curved cluster with three screens that is located behind the D-shaped multi-function steering wheel. Another screen is positioned vertically in the center tunnel. Interestingly, the MG Cyberster has shift paddles, which is unusual since it’s an EV. However, they are there to be used to switch between the driving modes. The seats of Cybertser are wrapped in Alcantara leather, remember it’s a 2-door, two-seater car.
The Cyberster’s suspension system, according to MG, was tweaked by F1 drivers. It has a multi-link independent suspension in the back and a double-wishbone suspension in the front axle. A single 314-horsepower electric motor is mounted on the back axle of the base model. On the other hand, the AWD model has a 340-hp rear motor and a 204-hp front motor. MG Cyberster’s total power output is 544 hp, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds.
The Cyberster’s price range was not formally announced at this stage. The base model, however, would reportedly start at 239,800 yuan ($33,000 ) in China, as per unofficial sources. In the UK, Cyberster will cost 55,000 GBP ($69,300), according to British media.
