When it comes to the Indian electric vehicle (EV) market, two cars that stand out the most are the MG Comet EV and the Tata Tiago EV. Both of these models offer different designs, features, and powertrains and cater to different types of buyers. Now, recently MG has slashed the price of the Comet EV, making it more affordable than ever. This has now led to a debate among prospective buyers as to which one is the better choice. So if you are one of those people, you have reached the right place.
Who should buy the MG Comet EV?
When it comes to the buyers of the MG Comet EV, it is an attractive option for urban city car drivers who are looking for an affordable yet feature-packed electric vehicle. With its recent price drop, the Comet EV now offers exceptional value for money. It is priced lower than the Tata Tiago EV, and it now makes itself a good buy for the budget-conscious buyers who do not want to compromise on features and performance. The base variant of the MG Comet EV is now priced at Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom), making it Rs 1 lakh more affordable than its previous price of Rs 7.98 lakh (ex-showroom).
The MG Comet EV comes equipped with a 17.3 kWh prismatic cell battery. With this battery pack, the Comet EV delivers an estimated range of 230 kilometers, making it suitable for daily urban commutes. Its compact size and impressive maneuverability, with a turning radius of only 4.2 meters, offers hassle-free navigation through city streets and tight parking spaces for all the city drivers.
The interior of the Comet EV is also very modern and comes packed with a range of features, including a 10.25-inch integrated floating infotainment touchscreen, LED lights, digital instrument cluster, wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, reverse parking camera, digital Bluetooth key, and smart connected car technology.
Who should buy the Tata Tiago EV?
On the other hand, when it comes to the buyers of the Tata Tiago EV, this EV hatchback caters to those who prioritize more driving range and space and a bigger overall vehicle. Despite being slightly pricier than the MG Comet EV, the Tiago EV offers superior range options and modern features, making it a preferred choice for buyers. Prices for the Tiago EV start at Rs 8.69 lakh and go up to Rs 11.99 lakh for the top-end variant.
Powered by Tata Motors’ Ziptron technology, the Tiago EV offers multiple battery pack options. The larger 24 kWh battery pack provides an MIDC-certified range of 315 kilometers. Meanwhile, the smaller 19.2 kWh battery pack offers 250 kilometers of range. This is one of the major advantages that the Tata Tiago EV offers over the MG Comet EV. It helps drivers with daily commuting requirements, providing peace of mind and convenience of a longer range.
In terms of technology, the Tiago EV comes equipped with Z-Connect telematics, offering over 65 features for enhanced connectivity and convenience. It also gets remote AC on/off and remote geo-fencing, real-time charging status, and smartwatch connectivity. And as it is based on the ICE Tiago, its size is an added bonus over the MG Comet EV, which could seem smaller to a lot of buyers.
Which One Should You Choose?
Now when it comes to the final decision between the MG Comet EV and the Tata Tiago EV, it boils down to your priorities and preferences. If you’re a person who only wants the vehicle to drive around the tight city lanes and is seeking affordability and a feature-packed city car, the MG Comet EV is for you. However, if you prioritize range, bigger size, and versatile driving capabilities, the Tata Tiago EV offers superior options.
