Citroen just began accepting reservations for its first EV in India, the eC3, for a nominal fee of Rs 25,000. The eC3 is essentially an electric version of the C3 hatchback, with a 29.2kWh battery pack and an ARAI-certified range of 320km.
It has a 57hp and 143Nm electric motor installed on the front axle. This power allows the high-riding electric hatchback to accelerate from 0 to 60 kph in 6.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 107 kph.
