The MG Comet EV is based on the automaker’s GSEV platform. MG Motor says the platform offers versatility and roominess, ideal for urban users. The EV will also feature a strong steel frame for structural safety as well as passenger airbags. Biju Balendran, Chief Operating Officer, MG Motor India, said: “At MG, we are committed to delivering innovative and sustainable mobility solutions, and with MG Comet, we will deliver futuristic and practical urban electric vehicles with many elements of driving pleasure. With the first Comet rolling off the production line, we are excited to welcome the beginning of a new future for electric vehicles in India.”

MG Motor has been teasing the EV ahead of its official launch. The automaker shared two images showing the dual screens on the dashboard and steering wheel controls inspired by Apple’s iPod. The upcoming MG Comet EV will feature two 10.25-inch digital screens for the instrument console and infotainment system respectively, and the floating unit will also get customizable graphics.

The Comet EV will be MG Motor’s most affordable electric vehicle in India. MG already offers the ZS EV electric SUV due in 2020. According to reports, the MG Comet EV will feature a 17.3 kWh battery pack with an expected range of around 250 kilometers on a single charge. The electric car may also come with two driving modes – Normal and Sport. The top speed of the Comet EV may be limited to 100 km/h.
