Citroen recently started accepting bookings for its first EV in India, the eC3, for a token amount of Rs 25,000. Essentially an electric version of the C3 hatchback, the eC3 is equipped with a 29.2kWh battery pack that has an ARAI certified range of 320km.
It gets a front axle-mounted electric motor that makes 57hp and 143Nm. This output enables the high-riding electric hatchback to go from 0-60kph in a claimed 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 107kph.
