New era for urban mobility with MG Comet EV

The compact car with a comfortable space inside and will solve you urban parking space issues and a car with a range of 230kms per charge will be one of the preferred car for urban life or at least a second car for family.

The car outlook is a hatch back with a length of less than 3mts, the two door all electric MG Comet EV is a city car like no other and let's see how it fits into a parking space scarcity, increasing fuel prices, search for charging station which is a burden in the busy urban Indian life.

We drove the car for about over 60kms, within the city limits and found it very handy and easy to manoeuvre within the heavy traffic and at places we could reach 92kms speed, but we could feel roll over during negotiating bad surface, while on the sport mode. But definitely it can be a second family car.

While we take you through the car exterior the size of the car is less than 3 meter with hatch back, while looking from outside you feel it might be too compact but that is not the case once you are on the seat you realise how specious it is inside. This car is well suited for the urban life as it take very little space to part and manoeuvring is very handy with the 12inch wheel, the well finished outer is very plain with many options left for personalisation with stickers, graphics and accessories. There are LED rails running in front and as well as on the rear. It is said the personalisation of the car can happen within a span of two days and you have the option of selecting the required choice and the delivery will be done with the same.

While we talk of the interiors, large door makes your access very easy and specially the entry to the rear seat is made very comfortable, as even adults find the entry and exit very comfortable.

Once you get into the car the tall driver seat have both slide as well as height adjustment, the light grey seats with dark grey pattern in between looking uniform right from dash board to steering and seats, but you do have an option of personalising your seat and steering handle at the dealership.

You have a floating twin display with 10.25inches head unit and a 10.25 inches digital cluster.

The digital screen gives you certain information pertaining to the charge in the battery and number of kms can be travelled, the speed and ODO reading, also information related to mode at which the car is running, with three options of Normal, economy and Sports. The cluster also gives you few more additional information.

The touch screen can be customised with different functions available by creating number of additional pages as per your priority. Battery indicator, climate control and Co2 reader showing it in digital form and in the form of plant emerging out of a seed and converting into a tree depending up the carbon reading.

As said earlier the rear seat entry and exit is made easy as the one touch slide and recline passenger seat give you ample amount of space to move in and out for a average adult, once you get in it also had enough of leg space along with head space. While of course the size of the car can only provide you limited boot space, which is sufficient for an office going, school dropping and limited purchase drive.

The center console had two usb charging units along with a hook in the bottom. Since the front doors are wide and large. turning and twisting your self to reach the seat belt is avoided with a buckle provided on the seat for a easier reach. The rear 50-50 split seats when tilted gives you ample amount of space for a long distance travel for two persons. The vehicle has a keyless start and key sharing provision for two, The long press on the break pedal will start the vehicle which will be indicated on the digital cluster as ready.
