The MG Dynamo concept has been unveiled, showing the company’s latest electric technology. The car, conceived as a rival to the Renault Zoe and Volkswagen E-up!, is a development of the Roewe E1, which went on sale in China as the E50 (below) at the beginning of 2013. MG says that, if the Dynamo is well received here, it will be evaluated for production.
The Dynamo is 3569mm long, weighs 1080k and puts out 71bhp and 115lb ft, which MG claims will see the Dynamo get from 0-31mph in 5.3 seconds, while its range is a mere 50 miles on a single charge. Charging the Dynamo takes up to six hours from a standard power source but an 80 per cent charge can be achieved from a rapid charging point.
