The MG E-Motion Is A Beautiful Concept Coupe With The Wrong Motor

MG has released a flock of pics of their E-motion electric sports car concept that will debut tomorrow on the Shanghai Auto Show. And it looks simply stunning from the grille to rear, with perhaps some Jaguar influences at the front. The four-seat concept is based on SAIC’s new pure-electric modular platform that will underpin a series of MG and Roewe branded EVs.

SAIC, or the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, is the Chinese owner of MG and Roewe. MG has released two specifications of the E-motion: it can go from 0 to 100 in less than four seconds and that range is more than 500 kilometers. Nothing else.

But in anyway, the electric motor is the wrong motor. This speedy thing needs a hot four-cylinder turbo. Happily, MG has just such an engine, the 220hp 2.0 turbo that lies under the bonnet of the MG GS. Should fit; has to fit, will fit. Right..?

Aston Martin doors! MG is officially classy again.

She winks at ya’.

The interior without too many distracting screenery. A sporty steering wheel with shiny spokes. MG logo in a recy red circle. Air vents round and shaped like propeller blades.

Stitched leather.

Broad shoulders, s subtle spoiler, and a large diffuser.

Note to MG: forget about all those silly SUVs. Build this.

    If SUV’s are silly why are companies like Jaguar, Bentley and even Lamborghini not usually renowned for such vehicles plowing money into them?

      It is absolutely absurd to see Luxury Car-makers make Sports-utility vehicle that would probably never made it in the 4WD parks and cost thousands to fix at the slightest hint of roughhousing.

      It is like taking a classic Rolex for diving/jogging/hiking/swimming.

      Back to the car, it seems like they are trying to compete with the Tesla Roadster.

      But they should have made a Hybrid car to capture some of that old-world enjoyment, instead of that clinical lifeless machine.

    It has got absolutely nothing common with the Tesla Roadster, except it’s also electric.

    Keep it electric! Forget about petrol and/or hybrid nonsense.

    Design looks awesome!

      I agree, seems like MG has found a major niche and has decided to exploit it. The car looks absolutely amazing.

    I would be interested to see what lies beyond this sleek and stylish concept – a new MG Roadster perhaps? And could they carry over the style to the SUVs and sedans that will sell in bigger numbers? Think of the style links between, say, the Porsche Boxster/ Cayman and the Macan, or the 911 and Cayenne/ Panamera, or indeed the Jaguar F-Type to the F-Pace. These concepts are exciting but we need to see some of that excitement trickle down to the production cars, both MG and Roewe.
