The MG Comet EV: City Driving in Style

When you look up the definition of comet on Britannica it reads Comet, a small body orbiting the sun with a substantial fraction of its composition made up of volatile ices.” And so is the car we spent driving the past few months. The MG Comet EV launched in 2023 re-defined the “small” car in India.

The Comet measures in at just 2.9 m in length and 1.5 m in width. This cute little car follows a 3 door format.  With its size we can only assume that seating and space must be cramped. But our team here at Motomads having lived with the Comet for months have seated 4 adults comfortably. The interior feels very premium, almost from a car that is two segments higher. The cabin is ergonomic and all the controls are easy to reach. The space is excellent as a two-seater for sure and the rear seats when folded down, can swallow up an enormous amount of shopping, weekly groceries and all that.

Given that the little MG starts at just 6.98 lakhs, there more than just a few features that it offer. You get full LED headlamps with follow-me-home function and some really hot colour options for example the apple green. On the inside the dashboard is flanked with a 10.25 inch touchscreen and a 10.25 inch MID display, keyless entry, electrically powered and adjustable ORVM’s, wirless Android Auto and Apple Carplay and MG’s flagship i-SMART connected car features and digital key sharing.

On the safety front it gets dual front airbags and TPMS. Powering the MG Comet is a Permanent Synchronous Motor that generates 41HP and 110 Nm of torque that drives the rear wheels, yes you heard that right the comet is a door rear-wheel drive car, very sportscar-esque. The battery pack is rated at 17.3 kWh and a claimed range of 230 km on a single charge.

The area where the Comet really trumps all its rivals is the fit-finish and premium quality it offers at a very lucrative price. Be it the wonderful and supremely comfortable leatherette seats or the dual 10.25 inch touchscreen. The MG is great for urban commute, with cities becoming ever so crowded and cramped the Comet is here to revolutionize personal mobility at a very low cost.

The MG Comet EV is an almost perfect city car. It is a joy to drive, packed to the gill with features and offers a glimpse into the future of EV mobility. If you’re looking for chic, stylish, convenient and a car that is cleaner and nicer to the environment as a  city runabout, look no further!
