Citroen is expanding its electric vehicle lineup with the eC3 Aircross SUV. The sighting of a test mule in India suggests the company is progressing towards launching the EV in the market.
It is always exciting to see new electric vehicles being tested and developed, especially in countries like India, with a growing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable transportation options.

As the country is a growing market for electric vehicles. The presence of a battery module and the absence of an exhaust indicate the car is an electric model, likely the eC3 Aircross.
Based on the information, the eC3 Aircross could come with a more potent electric motor and a bigger battery pack than the eC3 hatchback. While the exact specifications are unknown, expecting the EV to offer a decent range and reasonable performance is reasonable.
If Citroen manages to price the eC3 Aircross competitively, it could attract a lot of interest from Indian buyers looking for a practical and eco-friendly SUV. However, the company would need to invest in a robust charging infrastructure to address concerns around range anxiety.
Seeing how the eC3 Aircross fares against established rivals like the Tata Nexon EV and MG ZS EV will be attractive. The Indian EV market is still in its early stages, and there is a lot of growth potential. By launching a compelling electric SUV, Citroen could be a serious player in this space.

While there is no official word yet on the pricing and launch date, the sighting of a camouflaged test mule indicates the company is inching closer to bringing the vehicle to market.
As for the price, we will have to wait for an official announcement from Citroen. However, given that the eC3 hatchback is priced at around £20,770 and rises to around £26,090 in the UK, depending on the version, we can expect the eC3 Aircross to be priced competitively in India.
