Bringing typical French flair to the entry segment of EVs isn’t easy, but Citroen has worked smartly to infuse some freshness into this new genre.
Sticking to its promise of bringing one new car to India every year, the all-electric e-C3 follows hot on the heels of the C3 compact hatchback that came in 2022. Bearing a striking resemblance to the sophisticated C5 full-size SUV that ushered in the French revolution in 2021, it’s evident that Citroen is going for a certain kind of customer. Someone who likes distinctive and quirky design, the ability to customise their cars and values comfort over other indulgences. So the inherently long wheelbase that the e-C3 shares with the petrol-powered C3 is instrumental in making this platform a comfortable city car to ride in. Of course, Citroen had envisioned the C3 platform from its inception to accept both ICE and EV powertrains, reducing years and dollars in development costs.
