China’s MG has released a series of teaser images for the forthcoming EX4 concept car ahead of its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.

    The MG EX4 concept uses the MG 4 XPower, also known as the MG Mulan Triumph Edition in China, as a base and is a modern take on the iconic MG Metro 6R4 Group B rally car from the 1980s.

    The concept is powered by the same dual-motor electric powertrain as the MG 4 XPower producing total system outputs of 320kW of power and 600Nm of torque.

    MG claims to have designed the EX4 concept in London, with it set to feature a livery designed specifically for Goodwood.

    The teaser images clearly show the EX4 concept looks like an MG 4 with some outlandish body add-ons including a front splitter, wider wheel arches, and a large rear wing.

    As previously reported, MG will also reveal the regular MG 4 XPower electric hot hatch and the MG Cyberster electric convertible at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    The former of these models is “under strong consideration” to join the Australia line-up closer to the MG 4’s launch in the second half of 2023.

    As noted above, the MG 4 XPower’s dual-motor all-wheel drive setup produces 320kW and 600Nm. It features torque vectoring and a launch mode that allows the car to sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds.

    The MG 4 XPower has a “comphensive series of suspension upgrades”, including recalibrated spring and damper tuning, stiffer anti-roll bars, and sharper steering. Overall suspension stiffness is claimed to be up 25 per cent.

    There are “subtle” exterior tweaks including orange XPower brake calipers, a two-tone black roof, 18-inch alloy wheels, and polished trim highlights. There’s also an exclusive Racing Green exterior paint option.

    It’s not the only high-performance MG coming.

    Initially revealed a few months ago, the MG Cyberster will be a rival to the likes of the upcoming electric Porsche Boxster.

    The Cyberster is confirmed to be coming to Australia, though the local division hasn’t announced a date of when it will be arriving.

    MG has yet to release any technical details about the Cyberster, though a Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology filing filled in some blanks.

    It lists a single-motor rear-wheel drive powertrain with 213kW, as well as a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain boasting a front-axle motor with 150kW and a rear-axle motor with 250kW.

    Top speed is 193km/h in the single-motor variant and 200km/h in the dual-motor version.

    It’s unclear just how large the lithium-ion battery pack is in the Cyberster, or what kind of range it offers.
