UK-based motor manufacturer MG has unveiled a concept of its first fully electric vehicle. The company has developed a static preview of its MG Dynamo in an attempt to gauge demand for a small, electric MG within the European market.

The Dynamo is on display at the Society of Motor Manufacturers (SMMT) headquarters in London alongside MG's current UK production models the MG3 and the MG6. Measuring 3,569 mm (11.7 ft), the Dynamo weighs 1,080 kg (2,380 lb) with a typical range of 80 km (49.7 miles).

According to the company, which celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, the Dynamo's electric motor can generate a maximum of 52 Kw (70 hp) of power and 155 Nm (114 lb.ft) of torque, translating to an acceleration of 0 to 50 km/h (31 mph) in 5.3 seconds.

The vehicle's battery can be charged to 80 percent in 30 minutes, while a complete 100 percent charge will take around 6 hours.

The SMMT display runs between the April 16 and 28 to coincide with the 2014 Beijing Motorshow.

Zero - 31 in 5.3 seconds? Sounds like I would have trouble merging onto the freeway safely. But I like the 30 minute charge, giving 40 miles.
