Citroen eC3 EV unveiled; bookings open on January 22

The Citroen eC3 comes with a 29.2 kWh battery pack offering a range of 320 km on a single charge.

Citroen has taken the wraps off its first all-electric offering for the Indian market, the eC3. Bookings for the new EV will open on January 22.

The Citroen eC3 is the all-electric version of the C3 crossover. The EV looks identical to the ICE version. Even the front fascia has been carried over and does not feature a blanked-off grille like most EVs. 

The Citroen eC3 comes in two variants – Live and Feel. Inside, the eC3 gets a 3-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, height adjustable driver’s seat and over 35 connected car features. 

The eC3 uses a 29.2 kWh battery pack and a 3.3 kW onboard AC charger. It powers a front-mounted electric motor that develops 56 BHP and 143 Nm. 

According to Citroen, the eC3 can accelerate from 0-60 km/h in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 107 km/h. It has an ARAI-certified range of 320 km. It takes 10.5 hours to charge the battery using a home charger, but it takes just 57 minutes to charge from 10-80% using a DC fast charger.

The Citroen eC3 comes with a 3 year / 1,25,000 km warranty. Besides this, the carmaker is also offering a 7 year / 1,40,000 km warranty on the battery pack and 5 year / 1,00,000 km warranty on the electric motor.
