At the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, the MG Cyberster electric roadster made its official debut, revealing three trim levels and a starting price of $44,300. After making its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, MG's convertible sports car was teased at the Chengdu Auto Show in August. Today, the price was finally revealed.
At less than 50 km/h, the convertible roof can be opened in ten seconds. The vehicle is equipped with red Brembo four-piston brake calipers and 20-inch aluminum wheels.
Inside, there's an unusual triple LCD screen centered on the driver, as well as a large steering wheel with a flat bottom and three spokes. Earlier images of the Cyberster showed a Tesla-like yoke, implying that it either did not make it to production or will be optional on future models. The MG also has numerous physical buttons and two cup holders on the central tunnel. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip powers the Cockpit.
The MG Cyberster is a large roadster with measurements of 4535/1913/1329 mm and a wheelbase of 2690 mm.
It features scissor doors and comes in three trims with ranges of 501 km, 580 km, and 520 km, all enabled by a ternary NMC battery manufactured by CATL-SAIC joint venture. The RWD 501 trim has a motor with 231 kW, 475 Nm peak torque, and can reach 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds with its 64 kWh NMC battery, priced at $44,300 USD. The RWD 580 trim has a motor with 250 kW, 475 Nm peak torque, and the same acceleration time as the RWD 501 trim, but with a larger 77 kWh NMC battery and priced at $47,000 USD.
