MG electric sports car may be revealed in patent drawing

MG today sells a wide range of crossovers, hatchbacks and sedans, but the historic British marque is best remembered for its edgy 20th-century roadsters. We’re talking cars like the MG TF and Classic hit MGB.

Fortunately MG, now owned by the Chinese automaker SAIC, hasn’t forgotten its roots as we’ve seen the company launch two sports car concepts in recent years: E-Motion 2 + 2 coupes in 2017 and Cyberster 2 seater roadster in 2021.

But will we see a modern MG sports car in production? Autocar has managed to dig up what it claims are patent drawings for an MG sports car slated to debut before 2024.

The car in the drawing has clearly been influenced by Cyberster, and according to Autocar, the upcoming sports car will be an electric car, like the concept.

The Cyberster is said to be capable of sprinting up to 60 mph from rest in less than 3.0 seconds and covering 500 miles of range on a single charge. It’s likely that the specs of any production version will be slimmed down, just like the styling of the concept.

Unfortunately, the car is unlikely to reach the US due to MG’s absence in these parts. That’s not to say you won’t be able to buy an electric MG sports car. A company in the UK is building electric replica MGBsand left-drive versions are being developed.
