MG Cyberster, a nostalgic Back To The Future

e-Vehicles Feed

Porsche has the Boxster – an amalgam of “Boxer” and “Roadster.” Hyundai has the Veloster, a blend of “Velocity” and “Roadster,” even though it only comes with a fixed roof.

MG, the former British car company now owned by SAIC, is introducing the Cyberster, an electric car that reinterprets the roadster legacy that began with the MG TA in 1936 and ended with the last MGB in 1980.

The new MG concept is certainly a vibrant styling exercise, one that could offer a less expensive alternative to the Tesla Roadster 2.0 in much the same way the MGB was affordable to many who could not pay what it cost to acquire an XK-E or an Aston Martin.
