MG MOTOR UNVEILS VISION OF THE FUTURE WITH E-MOTION CONCEPT CAR
MG Motor has unveiled an all-new electric supercar concept at the 17th annual Shanghai International Automotive Show (19 April) – the MG E-motion. Offering a glimpse of the future, the next-generation vehicle aims to push the boundaries of innovation and technology, while meeting the needs of today's trend-setting car buyers.
Perfectly blending style, sophistication and elegance, the E-motion embodies MG's vision for the future. With a slender sportsback-style design paying tribute to the brand's hundred-year heritage, starlight matrix front grill and headlights bringing inspiration from the London Eye, and vertical tail lights developed using decades of world-leading design experience, the ground-breaking concept brings MG's sense of fun and aspiration to the low emission marketplace.
Below the surface, the MG E-motion sets the standards in plug-in vehicle capability, wîth the latest pure-electric modular architecture platform developed in-house and delivering 0-100kmph in less than four seconds, despite boasting a range of more than 500km. Equipped wîth an intelligent infotainment system, the supercar is fully internet-compatible, which MG believes will position it perfectly for the younger market.
In addition to the E-motion concept, the Shanghai International Automotive Show also saw the brand unveil a fully-customised version of the MG ZS compact SÚV. Positioned as the first intelligent SÚV, the model is already proving hugely popular wîth drivers worldwide.
With an 8' super control panel and the most powerful intelligent interconnected system ever developed, the MG ZS pushes the boundaries of innovative vehicle technology. Worldwide, the MG ZS has already experienced unprecedented sales demand, wîth upwards of 20,000 registrations being reported every month.
For the MG brand, this has helped to drive a 76% increase in year-on-year sales figures, alongside a 51% increase in sales compared to the previous quarter – easily surpassing the average.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor ÚK, commented: 'The MG E-motion electric supercar concept demonstrates our global vision for the future. Alongside leading the way in design and capability, the next-generation model is the latest step in achieving the ultimate driving experience.
'The Shanghai International Automotive Show highlights our progress and capabilities, while further new models will continue this future-thinking strategy, embracing innovation to deliver ground-breaking vehicles for the drivers of tomorrow.'About MG Motor
