MG Comet EV Launched in India at INR 7.98 Lac

The Comet mini-EV from MG has been introduced in India for INR 7.98 lac. While this is the three-door EV’s starting price, more versions’ costs will be revealed soon. The Comet EV has a distinct market niche, with MG aiming to entice customers looking for a compact city car.

Based on the Wuling Air EV, the MG Comet sports an intriguing full-width LED light bar that the Chinese automaker refers to as the Extended Horizon linking lights along with a boxy design language. A piano black and chrome strip links the two wing mirrors side by side. The Comet EV’s charging port is also located at the front, underneath the light bar, and it has an illuminated MG logo on its flap.

The EV is offered in five colors and comes with a variety of graphic packs divided into sticker styles and illuminated packs.

MG has given the Comet EV a 17.3kWh battery that has an ARAI-certified range of 230km and is rated IP67 for water and dust resistance. The 3.3kW onboard charger provided by MG requires seven hours to fully charge the battery. A single electric engine with 42 hp and 110 Nm propels the Comet’s rear wheels.

Although the MG Comet EV has no direct competitor in the Indian market, it may attract buyers of already available low-priced EVs such as the Tata Tiago EV (INR 8.69 lakh-11.99 lac) and the Citroen eC3 (INR 11.50 lac-12.43 lac), because of an even lower price tag.
