Take a look inside MG’s crystal ball and this might pop out. Say hello to the MG E-motion, a low-slung, two-door sports car with an electric powertrain and an eye on car buyers of the future.

The E-motion has been shaped using MG’s ‘decades of world-leading design experience’ and features touches like LED headlights that are apparently inspired by the London Eye and butterfly doors for that cool space-age look.

As for technical info, we don’t have much to go on, other than it can sprint from 0-62mph in ‘less than four seconds’ and has an estimated range of around 310 miles. That range figure is exactly the same as the raft of electric cars VW Group showed off at Shanghai – namely the closely related VW I.D. Crozz, Skoda Vision E and Audi e-tron Sportback. Funny that...

Little detail is given on the car’s interior, but MG promises that an intelligent infotainment system is on board and is ‘fully internet-compatible’, which sounds a little like when your mum calls social media ‘the Facebook.’

Matthew Cheyne, sales and marketing boss for MG Motor UK, says that the E-motion concept ‘demonstrates our global vision for the future’ and that it’s ‘the latest step to achieving the ultimate driving experience.’
