The box-shaped Comet EV may not appeal as a serious car to everyone. However, the carmaker has packed in enough features inside to keep one engaged. It offers two 10.25-inch screens - one is the main infotainment display that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, apart from various third-party apps. The driver display is all-digital. There is no dashboard but there are plenty of storage spaces all around the car, including two hooks for bags. There is a rotary dial for driving the vehicle and the two-spoke steering wheel has mounted controls that are inspired by iPods of yesteryears.
