MG Motor has unveiled the reasonably priced 2-door Comet EV as part of its efforts to increase its EV line in the Indian market. It will primarily target large cities where a little car can offer several benefits including simple parking and quick maneuvering through dense traffic. Comet can also succeed in Tier II and Tier III cities, which recently demonstrated a growing demand for electric vehicles.
In India, the two-door passenger vehicle market remains essentially untapped. The MG Comet EV won’t face any direct competitors and has a clear path ahead of it. Comet EV will compete financially with Tata Tiago EV. Starting at Rs 8.69 lakh, the latter is on sale. On April 26, 2023, MG will release the prices for the Comet EV.

Specifications and range for the MG Comet EV
Based on the adaptable and roomy GSEV platform is the MG Comet EV. It was specifically created with metropolitan commuters’ needs in mind. Due to its small size, the automobile may appear a little frail, but in reality, it has a sturdy steel frame. 17 panels with hot stamping have been installed across the body-in-white to assure structural safety.
