MG E-Motion recently was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show. The company also used this auspicious event to announce its intent of bringing the concept to production by 2020. Such news definitely gave industry experts and car enthusiasts something to look forward to.

Matthew Cheyne, MG UK's sales, and marketing boss said that the response to the concept has been overwhelmingly positive. He continued on by saying that the encouraging reception to the concept gives its chances of being in the market highly likely to happen. Since the intention is there, MG is poised to have the E-Motion become available on the market three years from now.

However, it is important to note that the concept is very new. This means there is no official word if the concept will, in any way, be the same as the actual production car. This is usually the case between the car concept versus the actual production car. Most of the time, the production car slightly veers away from its concept released a couple of years earlier.

SAIC Motor, MG's parent company also has yet to give it a go signal. However, hopes are up as the concept car may highly likely come to fruition. There is also very limited information on its powertrain. MG just said that the MG E-Motion is capable of accelerating from zero to 62 mph in under four seconds.

US buyers may also just remember MG as a small two-seater sports car. Though MG is not a well-known brand in the U.S., it is a highly capable automaker in other parts of the globe. The E-Motion is a sports car concept eager to let the whole world know about it.

The MG E-Motion has little bits of similarities with Mazda for its headlights and Jaguar for the way the rear glass cascades down the back. Unfortunately, the MG E-Motion concept car may not ever reach the U.S. soil. However, this concept car may take at least three years before hitting the assembly line so many things may still happen.
