 Electric MG EXE181 Hypercar Concept Aims For 1.9 Second 0-62 MPH

  • The MG EXE181 is a single-seater hypercar concept with an aerodynamic coefficient of 0.181cd.
  • A quad electric motor setup is said to allow a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 1.9 seconds.
  • This concept draws inspiration from the 1959 MG EX181 land speed record car.

If you thought that the Cyberster two-seater roadster was the sportiest MG could go, think again. The SAIC-owned brand has just unveiled the EXE181 hypercar concept for the Beijing Auto Show. This single-seater EV boasts an ultra-aerodynamic body and is propelled by quad electric motors, boasting a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of just 1.9 seconds.

As hinted by its name, the concept draws inspiration from the MG EX181 high-speed experimental vehicle of 1959. The 21st century iteration features a capsule-shaped cockpit, pronounced fenders, futuristic wheel covers, and a long tail with active aerodynamic flaps. MG claims that the sleek design results in an impressive aerodynamic coefficient figure of 0.181cd.

At the front end, a transparent material covers the facade, providing a glimpse of the monocoque structure and a portion of the suspension. Within the compact interior, the driver’s seat dominates the space, accompanied by a yoke-shaped steering wheel featuring an integrated touchscreen for added functionality.

The MG EXE181 trades the supercharged 1.5-liter engine of its ancestor if favor of a more advanced setup comprising four electric motors. While the company has yet to disclose specific details about the combined output, it has confirmed a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 1.9 seconds. For comparison, the production-spec Rimac Nevera completed the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in a record-breaking 1.81 seconds.

While the top speed of the concept remains undisclosed, a social media post by SAIC MG and the inclusion of parachute brakes in the official renders suggest a potential speed record attempt, reminiscent of its MG EX181 predecessor. The EX181 set the bar high in 1959, achieving a top speed of 254.91 mph (410 km/h), with racing driver Phil Hill at the helm.

We should learn more about the MG EXE181 concept at the 2024 Beijing Auto Show later this week. . While MG has remained mum about any future production plans, the futuristic aesthetics and land-speed character of the concept strongly suggest it will remain a design study.
