The entry-level EV space in India is finally beginning to expand beyond Tata’s lineup and let’s see how Citroen’s offering sizes up

Citroen eC3 vs Tata Tiago EV vs Tata Tigor EV

For any carmaker looking to enter the Indian market now, it is almost imperative to have a mass-market EV in the lineup. Citroen seems to have planned for that and after having a taste of the midsize SUV and premium hatchback segment in India, it is all set to dive into the electric vehicle space. The French carmaker has recently taken the covers off the India-spec all-electric C3, and called it the eC3.

The eC3’s closest competition will be the Tata Tiago EV and Tigor EV. We decided to put the three up against one another on paper to see how they fare:

Tata Tiago EV

  • It’s the Tiago EV in this trio that is the most compact but is as wide as its sedan counterpart, while its wheelbase is shorter by just 50mm compared to the latter.
