Butterfly Door English EVs

The MG E-Motion Previews a Sportier Future for the Iconic British Brand

— April 18, 2017 — Autos
Fans of classic British cars will be happy to see the MG E-Motion debut at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. For years MG was known for its sexy and sophisticated sports cars and roadsters. Now the brand Is Chinese-owned and builds economy cars. The MG E-Motion looks to bring the company back to its roots. The two-door is an electric car with scissor doors meant to compete with the Tesla Model S. The MG E-Motion will seat four and offer an electric range of 310 miles. Top speed wasn't revealed but it should be able to do 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.

Apparently if the reaction to the MG E-Motion at Shanghai is positive then the company will put the car into production. Along the way it will likely lose those great butterfly doors, but so long as it still offers 300 miles of range and features a sleek and sexy profile it's unlikely consumers will care how the doors open.

3. Scissor Doors on Electric Cars - The integration of scissor doors on electric cars can elevate their design and aesthetics, and create new visual attraction among consumers.
Industry Implications

2. Automotive Manufacturing - Automotive manufacturers can explore opportunities to introduce new designs and features in electric car models to compete with traditional gasoline-powered sports cars.
3. Luxury Automotive Brands - Luxury automotive brands can consider integrating scissor doors in their all-electric models, to cater to a new generation of EV enthusiasts seeking unique and aesthetic designs.
