MG Comet EV is capable of a driving range of around 200 km; based on the GSEV (Global Small Electric Vehicle) architecture
MG Motor India has unveiled the Comet EV to the media and it will be officially launched on April 26, 2023 in the domestic market. The smallest passenger car in India measures a length of 2,874 mm, a width of 1,505 mm and a height of 1,631 mm with a wheelbase length of 2,010 mm. It will be equipped with a 20 kWh battery pack and the claimed driving range will be over 200 km on a single charge.
The two-door MG Comet EV will compete against the recently launched Citroen eC3 and the Tata Tiago EV and it will target urban-based customers wanting to own a small car that can manoeuvre through city traffic conditions and can be easily parked. The zero-emission vehicle is based on the Wuling Air EV retailed in Indonesia and sits on the GSEV (Global Small Electric Vehicle) architecture.
In the video attached below, we have talked about the Comet EV in a detailed walkaround as the exterior and interior have been clearly explained along with the features list. Our comprehensive drive review will follow soon. It must be noted that the MG Comet EV will give rise to an electric SUV by the middle of this decade in India.
The MG Comet EV will be offered in multiple colour schemes and it gets a futuristic exterior with the presence of vertically positioned LED headlamps, an MG badge mounted in the middle that opens up to make way for the charging socket and a horizontal LED light strip and below which a chrome trim runs along the width and connects the wing mirrors.
Other visual highlights are tall pillars ensuring boxy proportions, dual-tone wheels, tail lamps mounted on the edges of the upright tailgate and an LED light strip at the back. The starting price of the Comet EV is expected to be around Rs. 10 lakh and it will be packed with features on the inside such as a dual 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The equipment list also gets in-car connected technologies, keyless entry and go, different drive modes, voice command function, a two-spoke steering wheel with controls inspired by Apple iPod, EPB (Electric Parking Brake), HSA (Hill Start Assist) and a lot more.
