MG is set to bring in its bite-sized EV, the MG Air with a different moniker in India. Now confirmed as the Comet EV, the compact hatchback has a lot more going on for it than what meets the eye. That said, here are five things you need to know about it.

Smaller Than A Tata NanoYes, you read that right. With barely two metres of wheelbase, the Air 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 yet, 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.

Feature PackedStep inside and you’ll see a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, an audio system and steering-mounted controls, everything you’d expect from a modern-day car of today. Additionally, the Air’s top-spec variant also comes with two 10.25-inch screens, one serving as a driver’s display while the other as an infotainment system.

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) mark. This would put it against the Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3.
