    Citroen C3 was recently launched in India, and while we expected the car to be a subcompact SUV - or an Aircross in Citroen's terminology - Citroen launched it as an SUV-inspired B-segment hatchback. It is now one of the larger hatchbacks on offer in India, and the electrified version will surely be an interesting vehicle, as not only will it establish Citroen & Stellantis - Citroen's parent group - in the electric vehicle market in India, but will also be one of the most accessible EVs in the market.

    Tata Tiago EV will go on sale in India in September 2022.

    Tata Motors also announced on the World EV Day that an electrified version of the Tata Tiago will go on sale in India this month. With the Citroen C3 also getting the electric treatment, it could very well be only the second electric hatchback on sale in India at the time of launch. Being inherently smaller than sedans and compact SUVs, hatchbacks will have lesser space for battery packs, and both the models could be on the lower end of the range spectrum, but their affordability and low running costs will pose an interesting question to the Indian consumers - Would you be willing to buy an electric hatchback with a short range? Or a larger electric car which also costs a premium over the smaller EVs?
