Citroën recently launched its latest car in India, the Citroën C3, which is the company’s second car in the country. Now, a top company official says that Citroen is planning to launch an electric car in the country soon. It will be an electric version of the current C3, which could reportedly be called the e-C3. At present, the exact date of its launch has not been shared, but it has become clear that an affordable or mid-range electric car is going to knock in the country by next year.
Carlos Tavares, the Global CEO of Stellantis, a company owned by the French automaker, has hinted during an interaction with the media that the company intends to enter the electric vehicles space in India soon. When asked about the company’s plans for electric vehicles in India, Tavares said Stellantis intends to bring the electric version of its small car C3 “early next year”. However, he did not give any exact date.
In January next year, the Auto Expo is scheduled to be held in the country during which many big and small brands will showcase their upcoming cars. It is expected that Citroen will also show its upcoming electric car in this event.
Taraves also said that Stellantis is working to develop a pricing structure that will make electric vehicles affordable as well as meet other quality standards, depending on how fast the company can meet those goals. fulfills the
