The tiny footprint and perky response from the 42PS rear-drive e-motor would make the Comet EV the perfect police car for our tight city lanes

The MG Comet EV’s ultra compact dimensions mean driving it through the narrow lanes of our congested streets would be a cakewalk. So imagine seeing a Comet EV designed for the police chasing down a criminal on these tight lanes, just like in a movie. Well, that’s what Wuling has done with the Air EV (the Comet’s donor car) at the Periklindo Electric Vehicle Show in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

The Wuling Air EV for the police services in Indonesia comes finished in a bright blue and contrasting white colour. It has ‘POLISIA’ (Police in Indonesian) written in bold in all four corners of the car. And like any model designated for emergency services, it has a beacon light on the roof. 

The changes don’t stop there. The flush fitting 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment screen has been done away with and this particular model has only the digital driver’s display. In place of that, you now get the controls to operate the beacon lights, speaker and the mic, which might be needed for making announcements while patrolling or catching up with the criminals.

No changes have been done when it comes to the seating layout. A good thing, because if a criminal is arrested, he has no other entry point except for going via the co-driver’s side. And he can’t escape because the Air EV has only two doors and the cops are at the front. So until and unless he decides to break open the glasses, there is no means of escape.

Now, the 42PS rear-drive e-motor might not be enough, especially when you are chasing the abscond in a more powerful car on open roads. But in case your chase is in tight urban roads or city conditions, then its tiny footprint and perky response from the motor make it a breeze to drive.

So to top things off, considering our jam-packed city conditions, the MG Comet EV would be a perfect police car. Prices currently start from Rs 7.98 lakh (ex-showroom) and the Comet EV is a smaller alternative to the Tata Tiago EV and Citroen eC3
