MG creates the E-motion concept

MG’s last coupé with supercar-rivalling performance was the short-lived XPower SV that arrived in 2003. Since then, the brand has had two Chinese owners and manufacturing in Britain has ceased.

Sporty models have been absent too, thanks to the marque’s recent focus on developing crossovers and mundane hatchbacks.

That situation might change if the E-motion makes the transition from concept to production. Just unveiled at the Auto Shanghai motor show, it’s a sleek four-seater which appears to have been somewhat influenced by the Jaguar F-Type.

A target 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of less than four seconds suggests the sort of pace that would make the E-motion a worthy successor to the aforementioned SV.

However, the two cars have virtually nothing in common apart from a shared target audience. For instance, the SV was powered by an old-school V8 petrol engine, but the E-motion is based on a pure-electric modular architecture platform.

While other technical details are sparse, MG claims that battery range could be in excess of 310 miles (500 kilometres).
