Shanghai Motor Show 2017 will celebrate this week the debut of something quite unusual. It’s the new MG E-Motion Electric Supercar concept, and it is unusual on a number of accounts. First, it’s an MG supercar which is something no one expected to see. It is also an electric supercar, and most astonishingly it could become a production model.
In fact, SAIC, the Chinese foster parent to the British MG, says that if the reaction to the concept was positive they could come up with a production model in about 18 months. That goes to show they have done the homework on this one and designed the concept with production in mind.
MG E-Motion Electric Supercar First Pictures:
Details and specs have not been fully revealed yet, but we do know that MG E-Motion has an all-electric powertrain with proper sporting credentials, namely a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of around 4 seconds. It also returns a 310-mile range on a single charge which isn’t bad at all given the performance. The car also has a fairly interesting design, what with the gullwing doors and all the garnish on the exterior. It looks more like an expensive grand tourer than a red-blooded supercar, but you have to admit this thing is very ‘super’ indeed by MG’s standards!
