MG Comet has a 17.3 kWh battery pack and a single motor driving its front wheels with 42 horses and 110 torque
The Comet is here and it is a rather quirky and unusual two-door boxy electric vehicle. Will this Comet annihilate the rest of its EV competition or will it land with minimum impact? That is the big question.
Earlier, MG had only revealed entry-variant variant pricing but has announced the entire pricing today. For starters, there are 3 variants on offer – Pace, Play and Plush. MG Comet Pace is its base variant and is priced at Rs 7.98 lakh. MG Comet Play is a mid variant priced at Rs 9.38 lakh and top of the line is MG Comet Plush, which is priced at Rs 9.98 lakh. All prices are ex-sh.
MG Comet Prices Fully Revealed – variants wise features
The two-door four-seat MG Comet measures 2974 mm long, 1505 mm wide, 1640 mm tall, and has 2010 mm long wheelbase. Boot space is next to nothing when all four seats are up. MG Comet base Pace trim level is equipped with features like a full digital cluster, power-adjustable ORVM, and reverse parking sensors.
In addition to the features from base trim, MG Comet mid variant Play gets space grey interiors, floating twin display, wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay, and internet-connected features. Apart from features from the Comet Play trim, Top of the line MG Comet EV Plush variant gets a smart start system, a digital key with Bluetooth tech.
As we mentioned before, this is a novelty vehicle and is a perfect fit as one’s second or even third vehicle. So, the price MG Comet commands are discreetly for its convenience. If that is the case, MG Comet lacks automatic climate control, ADAS suite for adaptive cruise control (something which Ola scooters are getting too) and maybe a sunroof.
MG is offering a 17.3 kWh IP67-rated battery. There is a single-motor architecture driving the front wheels. This motor kicks out 42 bhp of power and 110 Nm of torque. Considering that EVs have instant acceleration and MG Comet only weighs 815 kg with all the bells and whistles, performance should be brisk (for city commutes).
Top speed is over 100 km/h and MG is offering three drive modes namely Eco, Normal and Sports. Claimed range is 230 km and 200 km of real-world range is likely as most driving falls in city limits with regen. Speaking of regen, MG offers adjustable regen, which both its rivals Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3 lack. That said, regen can only be adjusted with the touchscreen.
Freebies to make ownership better
MG is offering a multitude of freebies to ease ownership experience for prospective buyers. For starters, MG offers three labour-free services, 3 years of RSA (Road Side Assistance), 3 years or 1 lakh km warranty on vehicle and 8 years or 1.2 lakh km warranty on battery. Buyers can choose from 80+ extended warranty and service packages bundles under Comet e-Shield.
Other notable element bundled is a 3 years Buyback plan where MG is assuring 60% of original ex-sh invoice value. Bookings will commence from 15th May 2023 and deliveries will commence from 22nd May 2023.
