Citroen, one of the newer players in the Indian car market, announced on Friday that its first batch of Made-in-India C3 cars have set off for exports to foreign shores. The C3 units were dispatched from Kamarajar Port in Tamil Nadu for markets in the ASEAN and Africa region.

Citroen made its India debut back in April of 2021 with the C5 Aircross SUV. The French manufacturer followed this up with the launch of the C3 hatchback and introduced the all-electric version of the vehicle - eC3 - earlier this year. While the C5 Aircross - updated earlier this year as well, is a premium offering, it is the Citroen C3 that is the mass-market option from the brand.
