Citroen E-C3 borrows a lot of its ICE model. There are subtle exterior changes, however. The front of the car is now missing the tailpipe and the charging port for the EV is now on the front fender. Other elements, such as the bumper of the car, remain the same.
The interiors of an electric car have also been modified slightly. You can see the differences in the center console. It also has a new drive controller and a gear lever. The car is priced the same as an ICE version, but the parts are made locally.
The electric car features a similar feature set to the ICE model. It has a touchscreen infotainment system that is 10 inches in size with connectivity features and height-adjustable seats. The car has ABS with EBD, dual Airbags, and many other safety features to keep its occupants safe.
Svolt, a Chinese company, is supplying the 29.2kWh battery for the Citroen E-C3. Citroen hopes to make it available locally in the future. Citroen’s EV features a 3.3kW AC charger onboard and CCS2 rapid-charging capability. The E-C3’s front axle-mounted electric motor produces 57 horsepower and a maximum torque output of 143 Nm. The ARAI-approved E-C3’s range is 320 km. It has two driving modes: eco and standard, as well as regenerative brakes. This powertrain allows the car to accelerate from 0-60 kmph (in 6.8 seconds) and reach a maximum speed of 107 kmph (in eC3).
