French car manufacturer Citroen has launched its first electric car in India. The E-C3 EV, which made its debut in the country at the beginning of this year, will come at a starting price of 11.50 lakh (ex-showroom). Citroen will offer the E-C3 in four variant called Live, Feel, Feel Vibe Pack and Feel dual tone Vibe Pack. The price of the top-spec version is 12.43 lakh (ex-showroom).

As far as the design is concerned, the E-C3 is not too different to look at when compared with the standard C3 model. It comes with 'e' badging on the car to distinguish itself as an electric car. The dimensions of the car remain the same as its ICE version.
