The upcoming electric car from MG Motor India will be called Comet, the company recently revealed. For those unaware, the small and reasonably priced Air EV will be officially known as the new "Comet" EV in India. The EV is built on the GSEV (Global Small Electric Vehicle) platform, which SAIC, General Motors, and Wuling jointly created. The brand-new offering from the auto manufacturer will be available in five different colour options for customers to choose from - White, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Pink. Besides, it will have a driving range of up to 300-kilometre. The MG Comet electric car is anticipated to launch in April 2023 and will be developed at the company's manufacturing plant in Gujarat. It is expected to generate considerable hype at the lower end of the Indian EV market thanks to its ultra-compact dimensions, boxy shape, three-door design, and long list of features. Although the firm has not yet provided much information regarding the MG Comet's technical details and features, there are a few things we do know about the car, so let's quickly have a look at them.

MG Comet EV: Exterior Design

The MG Comet features a tall boy design with a boxy silhouette and a three-door configuration. With LED DRLs, LED headlights, and LED turn signals, it receives a split headlamp setup. Additionally, the EV has a chrome strip that spans the width of the vehicle and an LED light bar below the windscreen. At the front, a charging port is added beneath the MG logo, and at the back, split LED taillights are mounted high. The EV has smaller, more aerodynamic 13-inch wheels that help to extend its range.

As mentioned earlier, White, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and Green will be available as colour options for the upcoming Comet. It is also possible that the company will offer the EV in a dual-tone paint scheme.

Regarding the battery, it is anticipated that the Comet EV will be available with two battery packs - a 17.3kWh unit with an expected 200-kilometre range as well as a 26.7kWh unit with an expected 300-kilometre range. The electric motor that is paired with the battery produces 45 to 50bhp of maximum power and 90 to 110Nm of peak torque, sending power to the back wheels. Tata Autocomp will reportedly supply the MG Comet EV battery locally, and it will use the same LFP cells as the Tata Nexon EV.

MG Comet EV: Interior Features

The Comet EV's interior receives a dual-tone design. The twin 10.25-inch infotainment and instrument cluster screens serve as the cabin's standout feature. The EV has modern AC vents with piano black accents to give it a luxurious feel. Included in the list of additional features are connected car technology, automatic climate control, keyless entry, a 2-spoke steering wheel, steering-mounted controls, a reverse camera, dual airbags, regenerative braking, parking sensors, hill start assist, voice command, and stability control.
