Remember the now-discontinued Tesla Roadster that went into space? Looks like British car brand MG has brought a potential rival for the car in the form of Tesla Roadster. After teasing a pure electric convertible and leaking some specification details last week, MG has finally unveiled the Cyberster EV at Auto Shanghai 2023. More interestingly, MG has promised to launch the production version within a year.
The SAIC-owned British car brand claims that the Cyberster will come in the form of a high-performance electric sportscar, the first of its kind since the original Tesla Roadster that made headlines across the globe. It’s the first new convertible from the automaker in over a decade and promises cutting-edge driver tech and a futuristic cabin. However, MG hasn’t revealed any specific details about the Cyberster’s powertrain.

In terms of design, the MG Cyberster comes with a modern styling philosophy while at the same time paying homage to the iconic MG roadsters of yesteryear. It gets a long hood and smooth body lines just like the previous convertibles from the brand. The car also features unique scissor doors, which come as an innovative styling element.
Despite MG remaining silent about the Cyberster’s powertrain, the car is expected to be available in three different variants. There will be a single-motor variant, which will be the base model. There will be a dual motor trim promising 101 hp peak power from the front motor and 215 hp from the rear unit. The top-end variant will churn out 201 hp from the front motor and 335 hp from the rear unit. It can generate up to 530 hp peak power.
The MG Cyberster electric convertible is expected to go on sale in the UK and Europe alongside the brand’s existing product lineup of SUVs and sedans starting next year. However, the automaker has not yet revealed the pricing of the car.
