MG Motor India has announced that it will soon launch its second electric vehicle in the Indian market. It will be called the MG Comet and will be more affordable than the ZS EV. While we know what the MG Comet will look like, the manufacturer is still testing the compact EV on Indian roads. Now, a test mule has been spotted while doing road testing.
The Comet EV will be equipped with a 17.3 kWh battery pack and will have a range between 200 and 250 kilometers. As such, it is entirely designed for urban duty. The charging time of the battery pack is 8.5 hours and no DC charging facility is provided.
The MG Comet EV has a top speed of around 100 km/h and will offer two driving modes: Sport and Normal. The MG Comet weighs 815kg and has a two-door design. That means rear occupants have to move the front seats forward to climb into the rear seats. MG has cleverly made the doors larger than usual to make things easier for rear occupants.
Despite being a budget-oriented EV, the interior is very futuristic and modern. It uses a dual-screen layout for the digital driver display, while the second screen is used for the infotainment system, which runs on a different user interface than the current MG model.

In terms of design, the MG Comet looks very sleek in its small size. A steeply raked windscreen, high height, flat rear window and small wheelbase ensure the Comet is easy to drive in the city. The cabin has a bright theme, and large windows ensure the cabin feels airy rather than claustrophobic. Because space is limited, the cabin is now roomy and the glove box is gone.
