    The Roewe E1 concept car was unveiled at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show where it stood rather forlorn and lonely looking a few steps away from the rest of the mighty Roewe stand, a few weeks ago when we were talking with SAIC PR regarding the MG3 test it was mentioned that the E1 would go into production in 2012, what they didn’t mention was that the E1 was now an MG

    The overall design of the original concept seems to be largely still in place, but the interior has been given a make over to make it less Jetsons and more usable. The E1 is essentially a three door four seater EV which has a top speed of 120kph and a max range of 135km in a single charge thanks to its lithium based batteries, the downside is that the E1 is no sports car with a o to 100 time of 16 seconds, but at least it will charge up fast: 30 minutes will see it reach 80% capacity.

    Very interesting, I like the interior.

    what's the badge on the steering wheel, MG2 ?

    MG will have gone from nothing to a full range of cars in only a few years !

    Interior is a bit funky!

    I think the steering wheel just says MG doesn't it?

    MG seems the brand of choice now rather than rongway

    Just wish they'd get a few models launched in Blighty rather than churning them out quite so fast in China
