‘Small and Affordable’ MG Cyberster to Cost More Than $100,000

We haven’t seen an all-electric roadster since the Tesla Roadster was axed (they sold just over 2,400 models in its five-year production run). However, when MG announced it was building an electric sportscar called the Cyberster back in 2021, it caught the attention of enthusiasts and promised to recapture some of that classic MG heritage that the marque lost when it relaunched in Australia with a slew of affordable SUVs.

Equal parts good looks and mind-bending performance, the “Cyberster” would surely have another trick up its sleeve – pricing.

We’ve come to recognise the brand for its aggressive pricing, high level of specification, and value, so surely this new model would be no different. However, with a Q4 2024 launch for MG Cyberster in Australia now months away, the brand also shared pricing estimates, and it’s not great news for buyers. This ‘small and affordable, fun-driving roadster that harks back to the MG’s of old’ will be priced between AUD$100,000 and UD$150,000, according to MG Motor Australia’s National Sales Manager, Brad Chruszcz.

“We’re really excited to be opening dealer orders and our official register your interest for our all electric roadster, the Cyberster, featuring signature scissor doors as envisioned by Carl Gotham and his MG London design team,” he said.

“Remember the original MG? Small and affordable, fun-driving roadsters like the 1960s and 1970s MGB and 1990s MG F? Well, decades later, it’s back and thriving with the Cyberster, and I’m so excited to get our customers into these cars. Dealers are taking orders as we speak with the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) range will fall between AUD$100,000 and AUD$150,000.”

Nevertheless, MG Motor Australia only plans to bring the dual-motor MG Cyberster GT variant to Aussie shores, which makes it a compelling choice for young, wealthier buyers who might be looking for an alternative to sedans like the BMW i4 M50, Hyundai IONIQ 5 N, and Tesla Model 3 Performance. It’s also significantly cheaper than the Maserati GranCabrio Folgore which costs the better part of half a million dollars.

Australian specifications have yet to be officially announced. However, we wouldn’t expect them to change from the UK specification. Overseas, the model has 496HP (370kW), which helps it accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. It’s compromised in terms of range, with up to 276 miles of range (444 km) WLTP and charging with a 10-80 per cent charge taking 38 minutes at a 150kW DC fast charger.

“I want it to be Q4 already so we can share our first ground-up, all-electric roadster with Aussie enthusiasts,” Chruszcz continued. “We will be bringing limited numbers of these cars into the country, so it’ll definitely be a case of supply versus demand given the interest we’ve already had from the public and our 90+ dealers.”

If you want to secure an MG Cyberster for yourself, dealers are now open for pre-orders. Colours include Beige, Grey, Silver, Red, and Yellow, with the first three variants available with a Red Roof. Interior colours include Black and Red or White and Grey. Further information will be added closer to the launch of this vehicle in Q4, 2024.
