The electric scissor-door roadster arrives starting at $64,495!

After a long wait punctuated by concepts and announcements, the Cyberster, an electric roadster with scissor doors, is finally available for sale, marking MG's grand return to the sports car market.

An Electrifying Comeback for MG

The Cyberster represents a departure from MG's previous roadsters, like the TF, notably by transitioning to electric power, confirming the brand's future direction under its Chinese ownership. With two trim levels offered, this model aims to redefine expectations in terms of sportiness and energy efficiency.

  • The entry-level model, the Cyberster Trophy, is equipped with a single rear motor, offering 335 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque.
  • It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5 seconds, with a starting price set at €64,495.

For an additional €5,860, buyers can opt for the Cyberster GT, a version with two motors and four-wheel drive, producing 496 horsepower and 726 Nm of torque, capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds.

Performance and Range

As expected, the less powerful version, the Trophy, offers greater range with 508 kilometers compared to 444 for the GT according to the WLTP cycle. However, the GT might appeal to those seeking a more intense driving experience, thanks to its higher power and blistering acceleration.

  • Four driving modes are available: comfort, customized, sport, and track.
  • An electric fabric roof retracts in 15 seconds, usable at speeds up to 48 km/h.

Scissor doors, a feature usually reserved for luxury vehicles, enhance the unique appeal of the Cyberster, likely making it the most affordable car on the market to offer this functionality.

A Competitive Landscape

While the MG Cyberster currently stands alone in the category of affordable EV sports cars, it will soon face competition from electric replacements of the Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster, which are forthcoming.

  • The Cyberster stands out with its bold styling and impressive performance, but the competition will not be far behind.
  • This situation highlights the rapid evolution of the electric sports car segment.

The MG Cyberster is available for order now, with the first deliveries expected in the UK in August. This new model could very well become a favorite among enthusiasts of electric sports cars seeking to combine style, performance, and environmental innovation.

The MG Cyberster is ready to conquer the roads and hearts with its revolutionary approach to the electric sports roadster. Get ready to be electrified!
