Dimensionally, the drop-top sportscar is reportedly larger than the Mazda MX-5 and the Porsche 718 Boxster, measuring 4,535mm long, 1,913mm wide, and 1,329mm tall. In terms of appearance, the MG Cyberster has not only a contemporary aesthetic approach but also a similarity to the legendary MG roadsters from the past. The tall hood and clean body lines are a carryover from the firm's earlier convertibles. Further, the all-electric car also has distinctive scissor doors. Inside, the MG Cyberster EV will likely feature a steering wheel with a yoke design inspired by Tesla. It will presumably get multiple digital displays for entertainment and driving data.
