MG officially announces Cyberster electric roadster’s technical specifications

British automotive marque MG has released some fresh details about the production version of the Cyberster electric roadster, which was publicly showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England earlier this year.

The SAIC-owned British marque released new technical specifications about the MG Cybester electric sports car at the ongoing Chengdu Motor Show in China, which is scheduled to run through September 3, 2023.

The battery-powered MG Cybester two-seater sports car has two powerful electric motors, which are said to be capable of churning out a combined 536 horsepower (hp) and 725.3626 Newton-Meter (535 pound-feet) of torque. It is enough to propel the vehicle from 0 to 62 mile per hour (mph) in merely 3.2 seconds.

For power, the electric motors rely on a massive 77-kWh battery pack, which is capable of storing enough power to enable the vehicle to cover a distance of 360 miles on a full charge. However, one should keep it in mind that the given range is as per the China light-duty vehicle test cycle (CLTC). Thus, the real range could be somewhat lower. In fact, automobile experts are of the view that a WLTP and the EPA-estimated range figures would be notably lower.

That is all that the British automaker revealed at the ongoing automobile show in China. However, some additional information is available through a recent filing with China's Ministry of Industry & Information Technology (MIIT). According to the filing, the MG Cyberster electric roadster weighs 4,376 pounds, and measures 178.5 inches in length, 75.31 inches in width, and 52.32 inches in height. Its wheelbase has been reported at 105.9 inches.

Other notable features of the upcoming EV include its open-top and scissor doors that makes it stand out from the crowd of any other vehicle, including Mazda MX-5 Miata.

The MG Cyberster electric sports car was designed at the automaker’s London-based Marylebone design studio. Carl Gotham, the chief of the design studio said in a statement that the studio intended to create a completely new roadster for the new generations.

When asked for a comment on the electric roadster, Gotham 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.”

It was nearly a couple of years back, in 2021, when the British automotive marque originally unveiled the MG Cyberster electric roadster as a concept.
