MG Motor India has released the MG Comet, its smallest electric vehicle, at a starting price of Rs. 7.89 lakh (ex-showroom). This is an introductory starting price, and comprehensive variant-aware fees will be implemented in the future. Reservations for the EV will begin on or around 15 May. The diminutive electric vehicle is based on the Wuling Air sold on Chinese markets at present. The Comet will be the brand’s next electrical offering on the Indian market, succeeding the MG ZS EV, which debuted several years ago.

Rajeev Chaba, President & Handling Director, MG Motor India, remarked on the occasion, “We are thrilled to introduce the MG Comet EV in India, a momentous occasion in the evolution of urban mobility.

When eccentric and unlike anything else on the market, it is safe to say that the automobile appears to be contemporary in its own right. The vehicle will feature design elements such as LED daytime running lights that extend from the front grille to the ORVMs and connect to the tail lamps. Even though the remainder of the vehicle is angular and unattractive, it appears to be something that people could become accustomed to and even grow to like over time.

The automobile is available in a variety of vibrant, contemporary colour schemes and decals that will appeal to the younger demographic. The MG Comet EV will include safety features such as Dual Front Airbags, ABS+ EBD, Tyre Strain Monitoring System, and Reverse parking camera and sensors, among others. What will also be appealing is the car’s interior, which appears to be quite well-made and of high quality.

The vehicle’s interior features a dual-monitor configuration, with one monitor for the digital instrument cluster and the other for the centre console. Each of the displays measures 10.25 inches and is equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additional interior features include a digital key with sharing for two and iSmart with a variety of connected vehicle features. While space is a consideration, MG claims that the vehicle can accommodate four passengers without difficulty.

The Comet EV will be equipped with a 17.3 Kwh Lithium-ion battery cell that produces 41.42 horsepower and 110 Nm of torque. The estimated charging time from zero to 100 percent is seven hours. The claimed range for the vehicle is 230 kilometres. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes comprise the automobile’s hardware. The vehicle’s suspension consists of McPherson struts at the front and multi-connection coils at the rear. It is built on MG’s new Globally Sensible Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform.

The automobile will be manufactured in Gujarat at MG’s Halol facility. The Tata Tiago EV and the Citroen eC3 will be its primary competitors on the market in terms of pricing.
