Citroën India has commenced exports of its C3 hatchback model to Nepal. The car is built on the manufacturer’s CMP platform and comes at a price tag of 36.25 lakh Nepalese Rupee (Rs. 22.61 lakh). The Citroën C3 has a significantly higher price tag owing to Nepal's high import taxes. In India, the C3 range starts at a price of Rs 6.16 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Nepalese market does not get the recently introduced Shine variant, which is currently the top-of-the-line variant of the hatchback in India and comes with some additional features. These include alloy wheels, a reverse parking camera, and electronically adjustable ORVMs.


With its entry into the Nepalese market, Citroën aims to establish a presence in neighbouring SAARC nations, tapping into the demand for its compact hatchback offering.
