MG is set to bring in its bite-sized EV, the MG Comet to India on April 19. The compact EV has a lot more going for it than what meets the eye. That said, here are five things you need to know before its launch

Smaller Than A Tata NanoYes, you read that right. With barely two metres of wheelbase, the Comet EV takes up less space than the already small Nano. Although, it does stack up numbers in other departments, being around 15mm wider and 111mm taller than Maruti’s Alto K10

Unique DesignOne of the primary highlights of the Comet has to be its design, which reminds us of the Reva EV of yore. In a similar way, the Comet packs a  two-door design with four seats, small glass housing and even smaller wheels. But fret not, it still gets some modernities like an LED DRL strip.

Respectable RangeWhile MG is yet to reveal the detailed spec of the Comet EV, we have no reason to believe that it’ll stray away from what MG Air offers internationally. The latter comes with an option of two battery packs — 17.3kWh and 26.7kWh, offering a range of 200km and 300km respectively. In terms of power, the electric motor puts out around 40PS.

Dual 10.25-inch DisplaysRecently, MG teased the interior of the Comet EV. It packs dual 10.25-inch floating wide screens, one of which serves as an infotainment centre while the other acts as a digital driver’s display. The rest of the interior looks plush and premium, with slim, horizontal AC vents and a textured finish.

Bite-sized Pricing?Considering its overall standing, we expect the MG Comet EV to cost somewhere around Rs 8 lakh to Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom). This would put it against the Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3.
