auto news desk, The story of European auto company Citroën in India is also strange. Citroën started its journey in a big market like India with just one car and 30 dealers. In the first year, the company sold 775 units of the C5 Aircross. However, after this the company has also introduced the C3 and then the electric version of the C3. Now the company is also going to include the fourth car in its fleet. At present, Tata Motors dominates the Indian electric car market. However, Citroen is also looking to make a strong inroads in this segment. According to auto website Autocar India, Citroën’s Global CEO Thierry Koskus said that converting petrol-diesel cars to electric is the best way to make an electric car.
C3 Aircross EV will arrive in 2024
Thierry said the process is not only fast but also cost-effective. He said that all over the world the existing petrol-diesel cars are being converted into electric cars. On the other hand, the company is also working on a dedicated electric platform or skateboard. An electric version of the C3 Aircross is also coming in the pipeline and is expected to arrive in early 2024.
Electric car launched in just 6 months
How fast Citroën is in terms of electric cars can be gauged from the electric version of the C3. The French auto company also introduced the electric version of the C3 hatchback within six months of its launch. This is the company’s first car in the Indian market. In such a situation, it is expected that the electric version of the C3 Aircross SUV will also be launched in early 2024.
