Costs for the full Comet EV lineup have been released by MG Motor India. The Comet EV is offered in three trim levels Pace, Play, and Plush, with costs ranging from Rs 7.98 lakh to Rs 9.98 lakh (ex-showroom). Bookings will start on May 15 and deliveries will start on May 22 in phases. These introductory discounts are only available to the first 5,000 buyers.The 17.3kWh battery in the Comet EV is rated IP67 for water and dust resistance and has a 230km range that has been validated by ARAI. The car has an onboard 3.3kW charger that charges the battery to capacity in seven hours, however there is no DC charging station. Tata AutoComp is where MG obtained the battery. A single electric motor with a 42hp and 110Nm torque output powers the Comet’s back axle. The claimed monthly operating expense for the car is Rs 519.
A full-width LED light bar, a chrome strip linking the two wing mirrors and an asymmetrical window line with a vertical rear window are just a few of the distinctive aspects of the Comet EV’s boxy design language. An illuminated MG logo is housed in the flap of the charging port, which is under the light bar up front. There are five colour options for the EV, and there are numerous graphic packages divided into sticker styles and lighted packs. With a 2,010mm wheelbase, the Comet EV has dimensions of 2,974mm in length, 1,505mm in width, and 1,640mm in height.
Two 10.25-inch screens—one for the infotainment system and the other for the digital instrument cluster—take up most of the white and grey interior of the Comet EV. The car boasts wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, manual air conditioning settings, keyless entry, and more than 55 connected functions. The vehicle has dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, TPMS, a reverse camera, and sensors.
The Comet EV is marketed as a strictly two-door urban commuter and has a distinct market niche. It will, though, undoubtedly be contrasted with Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3, two entry-level electric hatchbacks that provide greater functionality, adaptability, and range. Despite this, the Comet EV’s starting price is Rs 71,000 lower than the Tiago EV’s, and the gap widens further to Rs 2.07 lakh at the top. The Comet EV and eC3 have completely different price ranges, with the Citroen starting at a starting price that is Rs 1.52 lakh higher than the Comet’s top-end model.
