  • Citroen eC3 houses a 29.2kWh battery pack, claims a range of 320km.

  • Its electric motor is rated at 57PS and 143Nm.

  • While the fleet-specific eC3 has the same specifications, top speed will be limited to 80kmph.

  • It is offered in two variants: Live and Feel.

  • The eC3 is expected to launch soon.

Citroen recently debuted the eC3 electric hatchback and disclosed nearly all details save the prices. Bookings are open with the market launch expected by early next week. A recent RTO document has indicated that the eC3 will also be marketed to fleet customers.

According to the document, the maximum speed for fleet units would be limited to 80kmph, although the electric hatchback is capable of a top speed of 107kmph. The speed limiter seems common to the segment as the Tata Tigor X-Pres T EV is another fleet-oriented EV that is electronically limited to a top speed of 80kmph. We also expect that the base-trim of the eC3 will be available to fleet customers.

Citroen eC3 is expected to go on sale by the end of February, and could be priced from Rs 11 lakh (onwards). The eC3 will battle the likes of Tata Tiago EV and Tata Tigor EV.

We also anticipate the eC3’s fleet version to go on sale alongside the regular version, competing with the Tata Tigor EV X-Pres-T.
