The Comet will have a 17.3kWh battery pack, along with an electric motor producing 41bhp/110Nm and powering the rear wheels. You get the company’s claimed 230km range on a single charge, and unlike anything sold in the EV space, it doesn’t support fast charging. You get a Type-2 charger that can go from 0-100% in seven hours, or from 10-80% in five hours.
In the city, Comet’s drivetrain needs to be fast, fun and willing to push. There’s no throttle lag or lag, and it’s not hard to find the punch to slam in traffic. At the heart of Comet are three driving modes – Eco, Normal and Sport. While there is no difference between Eco and Normal, when you press the pedal to the metal, you feel the fist of about 40 electric horses. Also, with the car weighing just 815kg, it’s a lightweight feature.
Ride and Handling
As a city car, the MG Comet fits this purpose very well. The electric motor and lighter steering allow you to speed through the city with ease and maneuver like a motorcycle. For such a small thing, Comet is doing surprisingly well and is pleased with its handling of bumps, potholes and ripples. However, the short wheelbase means you don’t have a lot of travel, and when you pass by something really bad, you pass the car and think it’s turning pretty well. If you are someone who suffers from back pain, this should be your main consideration when looking at a car.
Given the small size of the car, it will be surprising to see that you can seat four! The general color scheme is gray or beige, which makes the cabinet very beautiful. For starters, the dash and armrests have nice accessories, while the center console stops before the dash, allowing two passengers to slide in and out easily from either side. Although the front seats are high, they have little padding or cushioning in them, which is where the car’s money comes from. If you are going to spend a lot of time in traffic, the seats are starting to fall short of keeping you in place.
The second line is where things get interesting. To use it, you need to slide the seat forward, then rock the seat forward. Getting in and out like this is not a task given the length of the door. You should be careful not to bump your head when exiting or entering a high floor.
When you sit, you’ll notice that the floor is flat, but you’re still sitting low, meaning there’s very little support under your thighs. While this isn’t a problem on short trips, long walks can make you feel like your knees are being lifted into the air. Finally, the trunk is almost empty and if you have a second row and take advantage of it, you should get the 50:50 folding rear seats.
In the cargo model we drove, you get dual 10.25-inch digital displays, power mirrors, LED headlights and taillights, a backup camera, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. i-SMART connects the car’s technology and the voice assistant. Connected car technology has more than 55 functions such as real-time location sharing, climate control, speed limit, smartwatch app, and geofencing. You also get the shared digital key that MG introduced with the new Hector a few months ago.
Of these, we tested dual screens and found them more useful than others. The infotainment system is easy to read in sunlight and does its job, although it’s a bit slow to respond. Surprisingly, the car comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, something we never expected. The board looks stunning with its good graphics and color scheme.
All models feature ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, TPMS, child seat mounting points and three-point seat belts for all passengers. At the time of making this video, MG Comet or its international partners had not passed the GNCAP crash test.
