MG intends to release the Comet EV, a compact electric vehicle, in India in April 2023. The price and battery details will be unveiled soon, as the company has stated. This rebadged version of the Wuling Air from China will be made at MG's factory in India. Five colors are available: White, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and Green.
The appearance of the MG Comet EV is elegant and cutting-edge. It has split headlamps. Turn signals, LED DRLs, and a tiny LED light beam encased in the front chrome bar make up the remaining lighting setup.
The bar moves up onto both Outside rear-view mirrors (OVRMs). The rear lights use the same design motif as the front ones, with a stop lamp beam that extends over the back and a 2-row split tail lamp. There is a charging port located underneath the MG logo on the front.
Wuling Air EV battery options are predicted for the Comet. A 17.3kWh battery powers it. The larger unit is a 26.7kWh one. The distance that can be driven between the two is 200 to 300 kilometers. The MG Comet EV is expected to have a 31 KW (41 PS) or 50 kW (68 PS) engine. The types that would be released are unknown, although the smaller 18kWh unit would be the most economical for India.
We learned that Tata Autocomp would provide the LFP cell-based Comet EV battery. Comet, the smallest car in MG's lineup in India, gives customers an affordable opportunity to learn more about electric cars.
Both the SWB and LWB models of Wuling Air have two doors, with the LWB having four seats. The SAIC, GM, and Wuling-developed GSEV (Global Small Electric Vehicle) platform serves as the foundation for the MG Comet EV. Other features are anticipated to include automatic climate control, two 10.2′′ horizontal displays, a 2-spoke steering wheel, an electronic parking brake, and voice control.
Because of its range, charging capacity, design, and features, the MG Comet EV is a sensible choice for individuals interested in electric automobiles. It is a practical and efficient electric vehicle for city travel due to its extreme compactness. Hello from the realm of small electric cars.
Comet is the name of MG's second EV. The MG ZS EV has priced in India from Rs 23.38 lakh, ex-showroom. Due to the MG Comet's anticipated starting price of less than Rs 10 lakh, it will contend with the Tata Tiago EV.
