MG Cyberster Electric Sportscar India Launch, Price, Range

MG Motor India has officially revealed the Cyberster electric sportscar at an event in Mumbai. The company is also looking at launching this electric sportscar in India; however, it is most likely to be sold under a new flagship brand or a more premium retail dealer network. A new flagship brand could be the result of a recent joint venture between MG and JSW Group.

Under the partnership, MG Motor India will have a wide range of electric vehicle portfolio ranging from Comet priced under 10 lakh to luxury cars with price point over 50-60 lakh. The new MG JSW alliance could also take advantage of Government of India’s new EV policy that allows new investors in the EV space to import a limited amount of cars at a reduced custom duty rate.

The MG Cyberster was first unveiled at the 2023 Goodwood festival and is also the brand’s first electric sportscar.

The open-top two-door sportscar is designed on the brand’s new design language, which is inspired from the brand’s sporting history.

The front fascia of the Cyberster has sweptback headlamps, a heavily contoured bumper with several prominent air intakes, and a heavily sculpted bonnet. The sportscar has scissor doors and fabric soft-top, and petal-like alloy wheels. The side profile has smooth surfaces, prominent rear haunches and side skirts. There is an accent line that starts from A pillar and extends to the rear. It also house the uniquely poisitioned door handles. At the back, the Cyberster electric sportscar features arrow-shaped tail-lights, a rectangular light bar spread across its entire width and an aggressive split diffuser.

The electric sportscar comes with a sporty & premium interior, featuring a flat-bottomed steering wheel with several buttons, and three digital screens in curved form for infotainment and instrument console. The centre console also has another screen and few physical buttons for the roof mechanism, drive selector and HVAC controls. There is a grab handle in the centre console that separates the driver and passenger sides.

The Cyberster is not likely to arrive in our market anytime soon. We expect the electric sportscar to be launched in India sometime in 2025 or 2026. It will go on sale in global markets by mid-2024, where it will be sold as an affordable sportscar with a likely price of around  £50,000 (approximately Rs 53 lakh). In India, the electric sportscar could be launched at a price tag of around Rs 80 lakh to Rs 1 crore.
