The design of the MG Comet EV manifests the Future-Tech world. Designed on the concept of BICO—’Big Inside, Compact Outside’, Comet EV offers comfortably spacious and enhanced legroom as well as headroom. The Curved Tech Body line accentuates the aerodynamic and stylish aspects of the Comet EV from the outside. The sides of the Comet EV carry a futuristic rear-view mirror design with a floating motif. The aero-craft cabin window in the second row allows for added visibility in the Comet EV.
The company has also introduced tires that are specifically tailored for electric buses and motorcycles, showcasing its dedication to promoting environmentally friendly transportation.
