MG Comet Compact And Quirky
While you might allude to the Tiago EV and Citroen eC3 electric hatchbacks as reduced, the Comet EV takes things to a higher level. It’s a sub-3m contribution, making it significantly more modest than the Maruti Alto K10 that actions 3.5m.
The Comet EV stands out from the crowd thanks to MG’s attention to detail in the design. The chest of drawers shape is expected to open up lodge space in its little, 2-entryway impression yet it additionally has eccentric subtleties like the Drove strips front and back. It also has big quarter-glass panels and small wheels, giving it a boxy appearance.
The Comet EV will be available from MG in five exterior paint colors: Candy White, Apple Green with dark rooftop, Candy White with dark rooftop, Aurora Silver and Brilliant Dark.
Packed With Tech
According to previous teaser images, MG has outfitted the Comet EV with connected car technology, dual 10.25-inch screens (one for instrumentation and one for infotainment), LED headlights with DRLs and taillights, and controls mounted on the steering wheel. In addition to dual front airbags, rear parking sensors, and electronic stability control, the ultra-compact electric vehicle is likely to include front and rear cameras.
Battery and Range
As per the leaked information, the Comet EV is likely equipped with a 17.3kWh battery pack that has a claimed range of up to 230km. Powering the EV is a rear-axle-mounted 42PS/110Nm electric motor.
Here’s a look at its charging times:
- 3.3kW AC charger (0-100%)- 7 hours
- 3.3kW AC charger (0-80%)- 5 hours
Based on the leaked details, MG will not offer the larger battery pack option available with its Wuling sibling for increased range, likely to keep the prices in check.
