MG Motor India has recently launched the Comet EV, an electric car designed for city driving, at a competitive starting price of Rs 7.98 lakh. The three-door car comes in various variants and is intended to be a practical option for navigating crowded urban areas.
The Wuling Air EV platform serves as the foundation for this model, which has a unique design language that includes a full-width LED light bar that connects lights called the Extended Horizon, and a front charging port positioned below said light bar.

The Comet EV features 12-inch wheels, asymmetrical window design, and five distinct color choices with different graphic packs. The white and grey interior has a pair of 10.25-inch screens for the infotainment system and digital instrument cluster, and the front passenger seat features a one-touch tumble and fold feature while the rear seats have a 50:50 split. The Comet is also equipped with a rotary drive selector, 55 connected features, manual AC controls, three USB ports, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The car prioritizes its driver’s safety through the reverse camera and sensors, dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, and tire pressure monitoring. The Comet EV’s 17.3 kWh battery is ARAI-certified with a range of 230 km, and it has a 3.3 kW onboard charger that takes seven hours to fully charge the battery. A single electric motor powers the car, generating 42 Hp and 110 Nm of torque, with a top speed of 70 km/h.
Prospective buyers can take a test drive of the Comet EV starting on April 27, and they can place bookings starting May 15, with deliveries scheduled to begin later that month. With its impressive features and minimalistic design, the MG Comet EV has the potential to compete with other mini electric cars currently available in the Indian market, making it an ideal eco-friendly urban transport option.
