The production of MG Motor's second electric vehicle for India, the Comet EV, has begun. An image of the Comet EV, which will start arriving on Indian roads next week, was included with the update by the automaker. On April 19, MG Motor will officially introduce the Comet EV, which is based on its Chinese partner Wuling's massively popular Air EV. In the Indian market, the Tata Tiago EV and the Citroen eC3 will compete with it as one of the most affordable electric vehicles, and it is also expected to become the smallest electric vehicle in India. The deliveries of the Comet EV are likely to commence in May. Sharing his thoughts on the first production roll-out of the upcoming EV, Biju Balendran, Chief Operating Officer, MG Motor India remarked, “The recent Urban Mobility Happiness Survey conducted by Nielsen unequivocally brings out the fact that a compact smart electric vehicle is the preferred choice of urban commuters when it comes to commuting. At MG, we are committed to providing innovative and sustainable mobility solutions, and with the MG Comet, we shall offer a futuristic and practical Urban EV with many fun-to-drive elements. With the first Comet rolling off the production line, we are delighted to welcome the beginning of a new EV future for India.”

MG Comet EV: Platform Details


The first MG Comet EV has rolled out of the carmaker's Halol manufacturing plant in Gujarat. The carmaker has also revealed that the Comet EV is built on the GSEV-born electric platform, which has been the foundation for more than a million GSEV-based vehicles sold worldwide. The Baojun Yep, an electric SUV version of the Comet with boxy dimensions and a high ground clearance, will be based on the same platform as the Comet. In India, this will be available for purchase around 2025. MG Motor India adds that the platform has a sturdy steel frame and 17 hot-stamped panels that are distributed throughout the Comet's white body.

MG Comet EV: Powertrain and Dimensions 

The EV is expected to be 2,974mm long, 1,631mm tall, and 1,505mm wide in terms of dimensions. Its wheelbase is anticipated to be 2,010mm. The upcoming EV's mechanical components are likely to include 17.3kWh and 26.7kWh battery packs. The battery will be connected to an electric motor that can produce between 45 and 50bhp of maximum power as well as a peak torque ranging between 90 and 110Nm.

MG Comet EV: Styling

A tall boy design with a boxy silhouette and three doors is present on the MG Comet. It receives a split headlamp setup with LED DRLs, LED headlights, and LED turn signals. The EV also has an LED light bar below the windscreen and a chrome strip that runs the full width of the car. A charging port has been added to the front of the vehicle beneath the MG logo and split LED taillights are mounted high on the back. The 13-inch wheels on the EV are smaller and more aerodynamic, which helps to increase its range.

As previously mentioned, the upcoming Comet will come in the following colour options: White, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and Green. The EV might also be available from the company with a two-tone paint job.
