Lotus is already experimenting with electrification with its Evija hypercar, which goes into production at the end of the year

The sportscar maker Lotus has announced that a new model, to be called the Emira, will be its last conventionally powered car.

The new design forms part of a major overhaul of the Norfolk-based business, which is controlled by China’s Geely.

Managing director Matt Windle told the BBC it would form a bridge between what he called the analogue cars of today and the digital cars of tomorrow.

Ahead of its global unveil slated for March 31, renderings of MG Cyberster have surfaced which give a solid glimpse at how this two-door EV sports car has been designed. And while it looks every but like a mean machine ready to set tracks on fire, there is much that the MG Cyberster is promising in terms of specifications as well.

A low-slung profile is what lends the MG Cyberster its sports car credentials. With sharp lines across its side body panels, catchy front shovel lower lip, slim grille design, ‘magic-eye’ interactive headlights, LED lights, among other highlights, this here seeks to make a style statement of its own while inheriting the classic convertible shape of MGB Roadster.
