For those curious about the pricing strategy, please note that the eC3 is more expensive than ICE C3 in the Indian market.
Thanks to the lean tax rates on EVs, Citroen Nepal will offer the new EV at a much more affordable price. Nevertheless, the price has still garnered polarizing reactions online.
Citroen C3 rivals Tata Tigor EV.
Both are very similar in terms of offering, performance, and range. However, the Tata Tigor includes more features for the asking price with a far better charging network and service stations.
But that will cost more.
Due to the recent tax increase on 50kW-100kW EVs, the price of the Tata Tigor EV (55kW Motor) will likely increase in a few weeks.
It will be interesting to how the market will react to the new Citroen eC3.
