An exciting new chapter in the MG story has just been announced at Auto Shanghai 2023 with the company officially confirming production plans of its unique high-performance EV sports car – Cyberster.
With its potent all-electric drivetrain and modern interior that includes cutting-edge driver electronics, the two-seat roadster represents the much-anticipated return of the renowned MG marque to sportscar production.
Carl Gotham, Advanced Design Director of the company’s Marylebone design studio in London, comments:
“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.”
With its characteristic long bonnet, low nose, and curved surfaces, Cyberster's evocative style pays homage to beloved roadsters from MG's rich history while also bringing eye-catching new features like its distinctive scissor doors and Kammback rear design.
MG Motor UK has released pricing of the new, comprehensively updated HS – revealing a bold new design for the company’s best-selling flagship SUV.
The 2023 MG HS will continue to offer customers outstanding value for money, retaining the same pricing structure as the outgoing model, with the generously equipped SE specification starting from just £23,495 on the road.
The new HS has a sharper, more aggressive appearance after a thorough overhaul. The HS is once again recognised as MG's largest and most opulent SUV with bi-function LED headlights, a striking grille, and a redesigned front bumper.
The new 18" diamond cut wheel design, a new bumper design, redesigned twin exhaust outlets, and LED taillights round out the modern new style update at the rear.
Both the SE and Trophy specifications of the new MG HS provide extensive equipment levels. At debut, a 1.5 litre, turbocharged petrol engine with up to 162PS will power all versions.
Standard transmission options include a manual and a dual clutch DCT gearbox; the latter is an option for SE and Trophy grades.
The interior of the new MG HS is furnished with high-quality, soft-touch materials, maintaining the previous generation's amazing amount of room and comfort. With improved hardware, the 10.1'' infotainment system now operates more quickly and smoothly.
The SE grade, which starts at £23,495 and includes air conditioning, satellite navigation, a rear parking camera with sensors, rain-sensing wipers, keyless entry, and a leather steering wheel as standard, features bi-function LED headlights with front and rear sequential indicators for the first time.
Trophy specification, priced from £25,995, also includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, rear privacy glass and an upgraded 6-speaker audio system.
One of the longest completely transferable warranties in its class, MG's renowned 7-year/80,000-mile warranty will continue to be offered to customers on all models. The HS line now offers Urban Grey for the first time as part of a vast seven-color palette that also includes solid, metallic, and tri-coat options.
