The interior of the MG6 XPower is done in black, along with elements of green such as the contrast stitching and XPower logo on the centre arm-rest. The three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel is covered with Alcantara leather while the inner door panels are decorated with high-end suede material. MG will also offer a bunch of customisation options for the interior, when the car is ready for sale.
The MG6 XPower gets a high-performance plug-in hybrid system, including a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine and a high-power permanent magnet synchronous motor, which makes 301 bhp of max power and peak torque of 480 Nm. The car sprints from 0-100 kmph in six seconds. MG says that the finely calibrated chassis suspension makes for superb handling. The sportscar gets a 10-speed EDU second-generation intelligent electric drive gearbox, allowing the motor and the engine power to be seamlessly connected with faster shift response and higher transmission efficiency. The MG6 XPower gets racing grade 920E 6-piston fixed calipers at the front and rear along with a floating disc. In fact, MG claims that the brakes help the car to slow down from 100 kmph to 0 within a space of 33 metres.
The sportscar is equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport CUP2 high-performance semi-hot-melt patterned tyres imported from France. The tyres use dual-tread formula technology and track durability technology to offer better grip and stability when cornering.
