MG E-motion electric coupe set for 2021 launch
The MG E-motion electric coupe concept is expected to go into production, following its debut at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show
The MG Cyberster may be the latest electric concept from the brand, it followed on from this: The MG E-motion. The electric coupe concept that was first revealed back in 2017, the production version of which is expected to be unveiled sometime this in 2021.
The production version would sit alongside MG’s other electric offerings, including the Cyberster, 5, ZS, and Marvel R, and is expected to be capable of roughly 250 miles on a single charge. The original concept however had a range of 310 miles and could do 0-62mph in less than four seconds, thanks to a twin-motor set-up delivering four-wheel drive.
“The E-motion is coming,” said MG UK’s head of product and planning Matthew Stevens, in July 2019. “That car is real and it’s a couple of years away.
“We think it is in almost a unique segment, especially in Western Europe, because there’s no other car doing what it does in that class. It’ll be a real statement of intent; a ‘halo’ car.”
“The E-motion has some incredible tech,” added Daniel Gregorious, MG’s sales and marketing boss. “It taps into our heritage as a sports car manufacturer.”
The MG E-motion is set to use a modular electric-vehicle platform designed by Chinese firm SAIC, its parent company. However, the scissor doors and curved glass roof that featured on the concept are unlikely to survive the transition to production.
