According to Auto Express, after a lengthy absence and years of rumours, it appears MG will finally be returning to the sportscar market. Hazy teaser images of what looks to be a new concept car have appeared online, with reports suggesting the car could be called the MG E-Motion.
As the name suggests it will be a pure electric sportscar, which could potentially preview a spiritual successor to the MG TF – axed from production in 2011.
The concept could be unveiled as early as next week at the Shanghai Motor Show – the home show for MG parent company SAIC. Details are limited but reports indicate a 0-62mph time of under 4 seconds and a range of over 300 miles.
The teaser images show a shape and design unlike anything we’ve previously seen from MG; only the ZS-inspired headlamps are recognisable. Clearly a sleek two-door coupe, the size of the concept is difficult to gauge, but given the body style, it’s likely to share a similar footprint to a BMW 4 series.
