2023 MG Comet EV Review : 10 Pros & 10 Cons

The Comet EV is based on the Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform and the overall build quality is satisfactory. More importantly, it doesn’t feel like a cheap car.

MG Comet Pros

  • We find the Comet EV to be well-priced for what it offers
  • Ultra-compact size, light steering and small turning radius make it perfect for crowded cities
  • A well-built hatchback that doesn’t feel cheap
  • Real world range should be 150 – 160 km which is enough for an urban commuter
  • Adjustable drive modes and selectable regen braking are useful in various driving conditions
  • Zero emissions, cheap running costs & green image will appeal to a lot of people
  • Good-looking cabin that has adequate space for 4 people to drive around town
  • Tech includes a 10.25-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, connected car benefits, cool starting procedure (no button to press), digital key sharing, etc.
  • Good feature list for 8 lakhs! LED headlamps, indirect TPMS, keyless entry, split folding rear seat, reverse parking camera with sensors, etc.
  • Plenty of customization options and accessories to make your car truly unique

MG Comet Cons

  • Weird, funky styling may not appeal to everyone
  • Not for people who want to do highway runs. This car is strictly for the city only
  • 2-door design means difficult rear seat access. Also, it is a 4-seater, not 5
  • 41 BHP motor isn’t fun-to-drive. Top speed is limited to 80 km/h
  • Can be used only as the 2nd or 3rd car of the house. Surely not your primary vehicle
  • Zero boot space with all the seats up. You’ll have to fold the rear seats if you want to carry any luggage
  • No DC fast charging or even AC fast charging options. Just home charging is available which takes 7 hours for a full charge (10 – 80% in 5 hours)
  • The usual EV challenges (charging infrastructure, brand new tech could mean niggles, range anxiety)
  • Missing features like seat height adjustment (tall drivers would want to lower the seat), rear washer and wiper, spare wheel!!
  • 2-speaker sound system is just sad
