A NEW chapter in the MG story has been announced at Auto Shanghai 2023 with the company officially confirming production plans of its high-performance EV sports car - the Cyberster.

The two-seat roadster marks a return to sportscar production by the celebrated MG marque, with Cyberster poised to bring the story right up to date with a powerful all-electric powertrain and contemporary cabin featuring cutting-edge driver technology.

Carl Gotham, advanced design director of the company's Marylebone design studio in London, 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.

"The focus for Cyberster was to create a design that was respectful of the brand's illustrious past and to bring back that sporting bloodline, while also being absolutely clear that it should be modern and forward-facing like the MG of today, completely in-tune with the rapid transition to electric vehicles."

The Cyberster's evocative styling pays homage to much-admired roadsters from MG's rich heritage, with its distinctive long bonnet, low nose and curved surfaces, while also introducing striking new features such as distinctive scissor doors and Kammback rear design.

Guy Pigounakis, MG Motor UK's commercial director, added: "This is the perfect time to introduce an MG that completely reconnects with our performance DNA and is designed to enthral the driver on every level. MG is all set for an electric, sporting future and it is the perfect way to start celebrating our 100thanniversary."

The marque became famed for its open top models such as the Midget and MGB of the 1960s and 70s but has not has a roadster in its line up since the TF went out of production in 2011.

MG was acquired by Chinese company Shanghai Automotive in 2006.

The Cyberster is expected to arrive for sale in the UK and Europe in the summer of 2024 when more details including performance and price will be released.
