MG Comet EV For India Revealed

MG Comet EV For India

MG Motor has just announced that it's upcoming EV will be the 'Comet'. It will be sold in India. This is also the first time MG has revealed the India-spec model that's based on sister brand Wuling's Air EV, and is sold in markets like Indonesia. It will be positioned as an urban runabout with a driving range of up to 300km. Back in August 2021, Autocar India was the first to exclusively report about MG's plans to launch this urban electric runabout in India.

As for the name, MG says it derives inspiration from the iconic 1934 British airplane which participated in the England-Australia MacRobertson Air Race – keeping alive its tradition of airplane-derived names. MG's Hector and Gloster SUVs are also named after World War II-era British airplanes.

The Comet will be unlike any other hatchback that ever been in India – measuring just 2.9m long, the three-door, four-seater Comet will be the smallest four-wheeler on sale in India. It, however, won't be quite as tight on space, as, thanks to its electric skateboard architecture, relatively long 2,010mm wheelbase, and boxy shape, interior packaging will be quite space-efficient.

The India-spec Comet EV looks identical to the one that's sold in Indonesia. It gets a two-tone finish for the front fascia, a tall and stubby nose, and a wrapround strip under the windscreen with LED lighting elements that end in the wing mirrors. In profile, the small wheels pushed to the edges and the asymmetrical window line with dual-tone piant finish are what stand out, while the rear end has been designed to mimic the front fascia.
