MG Motor India is working on a new compact electric vehicle for the Indian market. It will be launched in India sometime later this year. Now, the brand has announced that the new electric vehicle will be called Comet. The name derives inspiration from the iconic 1934 British airplane which participated in the England-Australia MacRobertson Air Race.

According to Mr. Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India, “Urban mobility is at a point of inflexion where New Age solutions are needed to address both the current as well the forthcoming challenges. As we move further into the digital age, we will witness an exceedingly large number of innovations that could range from futuristic technologies to unique designs to clean mobility and many others. We at MG, through ‘Comet’, intend to take the needed decisive steps and a 'leap of faith' in the direction of creating solutions for a better future for each one of us."

What will be the highlight of the MG Comet is its interior. It will have dual screens so there is a large touchscreen infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster as well. There will be connected car technology on offer as well. The brand will be making some changes to the vehicle so that it suits Indian climatic conditions.
