- MG Cyberster wil debut in the 2nd half of 2024
- Available in two battery sizes and drivetrain configurations
- Up to 580 km of range and 0-100km/h time of 3.2 seconds.
MG Australia has confirmed that the much anticipated MG Cyberster will make its Australian debut in the second half of 2024. This will be the brands first electric sports car since being acquired by SAIC in 2009.
Pricing has yet to be confirmed but it is expected to start at over $100,000 when it arrives.
Power and Performance
Australian specificatons have yet to be confirmed but it will likely mirror the Chinese-spec Cyberster. The Cyberster range opens with a single-motor rear-wheel drive offering 231kW of power and 475Nm of torque. MG claims a swift 0-100km/h acceleration time of 4.9 seconds.
Buyers have a choice between two battery packs: a 64kWh battery and 19-inch alloy wheels for a 501km range, or a 77kWh battery with 20-inch alloys for an extended 580km range.
The range-topping dual-motor all-wheel drive boosts power to 400kW and 725Nm, resulting in a rapid 0-100km/h time of just 3.2 seconds. If this specification makes the Australian market, it would make it the fastest electric car available for sale.
Size and Dimensions
The Cyberster is not a small roadster, measuring 4535mm in length, 1913mm in width, and standing 1329mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2690mm. It is substantially larger than past MG roadsters. The car's weight ranges between 1850kg and 1985kg, which is considerably heavier than a base spec Mazda MX-5.
Tech and Features
This two-seater sports car is equipped with a folding fabric roof that can be operated at speeds up to 50km/h, taking just 10 seconds to open or close.
The interior will feature four screens, LED headlights, 256-colour ambient lighting, a surround-view camera, an eight-speaker Bose sound system, and luxurious sports seats with Dinamica suede upholstery.
Driver-assist and Safety Features
Safety is paramount in the Cyberster, with the top variants featuring adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Cyberster isn't the only high-end vehicle MG plans to introduce in Australia. They are also considering bringing the LS6 luxury SUV, another premium vehicle from fellow SAIC Motor brand IM, to the Australian market.
