Forthcoming All-new MG Electric Car Named Comet EV, India Launch Soon

MG Motor India has announced the name of its upcoming all-electric car in the country. Christened as the ‘Comet EV’, it draws inspiration from an iconic 1934 British airplane that took part in the England-Australia McRobertson Air Race. The MG Comet EV is expected to be launched in the Indian market in the coming months.

It is not the first time that the brand has named its cars after British aeroplanes, as the Hector was also named after a British World War II fighter biplane built in the late 1930s. In addition, the MG Gloster was named after a prototype jet-engine aircraft that was built in Britain and first flew in 1941.

According to Mr. Rajeev Chaba, Chairman and Managing Director, MG Motor India, “Urban mobility is at an inflection point where new age solutions are needed to address current as well as upcoming challenges.

As we move forward in the digital age, we will see a large number of innovations which can range from futuristic technologies to unique designs to clean mobility and many more. We at MG, through ‘Comet’, intend to take the necessary decisive step and ‘leap of faith’ towards creating solutions for a better future for each one of us.

The all-electric Comet urban car was earlier believed to be launched at the Auto Expo 2023, but MG had different plans. The features, battery pack and driving range of the Comet EV are not known yet. They are expected to be in the public domain closer to the launch date in India.
