MG will launch a sexy electric sports car concept on the Shanghai Auto Show. Sadly, the name isn’t as good as the looks: E-motion. Come on..! Anyway. The renderings look very promising. The concept will be based on SAIC’s new pure-electric modular platform that will underpin a series of MG and Roewe branded EVs.
Let’s hope this E-motion will see production too. MG could sure use a sporty car in their lineup again. MG hasn’t released much information about the concept; only that it can go from 0 to 100 in less than four seconds and that range is more than 500 kilometers.
SAIC, or the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, is the Chinese owner of MG and Roewe.
Very attractive rear end with a broad shoulder and vertical light units, Ford Mustang style.
It is great to see that there is more than just SUVs and crossovers in MG’s mind. May they produce, may they produce. Just ditch the EV blabla and fit in a hout turbocharged four, and set it up straight against the Toyota 86.
Let’s hope that they can find a way to deliver a production car drawing on this concept
The slow sales of MG in China may be caused by the consumers’ lack of understanding about the brand. Current models don’t provide a clear definition of the brand. This design concept might signal that SAIC has come to that same conclusion. Lets hope!
