MG teases Mazda MX-5 Miata rival
MG has hinted at a return to its sports activities auto roots for many years but now it seems like it is last but not least taking place.
The British marque on Monday launched a teaser video displaying a convertible sports activities auto with related proportions to the Mazda MX-5 Miata and what may possibly perhaps be a yoke-fashion steering wheel.
In a statement accompanying the video, MG explained: “The return of the legend. Check out the tease for our MG sports car.”
The sports activities auto proven in the video matches up with the style featured in patent drawings that surfaced in June. In the two circumstances, there are clear influences from MG’s Cyberster roadster idea proven in 2021.

Interestingly, the Cyberster featured an electrical powertrain, and this is also anticipated to be the situation for the sports activities auto which is at the moment anticipated to commence revenue about 2024, in markets exactly where MG operates. Unfortunately the U.S. is not one particular of them.
The Cyberster idea was claimed to be capable of sprinting to 60 mph from rest in beneath 3.0 seconds and covering a selection of 500 miles on a charge. It’s very likely the specs for any manufacturing model will be toned down, just like the concept’s styling.

MG in July exposed a modular platform for electrical autos, which the firm explained was capable of supporting sports activities autos. It’s very likely the new platform, recognized as the MSP (Modular Scalable Platform), will underpin the approaching sports activities auto.
