The Tata Tiago.ev is one vehicle that instantly comes to mind when discussing inexpensive electric cars (EVs) in India. Its popularity may be determined by the fact that on October 10 it received over 10,000 reservations in a single day. While the Tiago's ICE model has consistently been well-liked by the general public, the electric version of the hatchback is also gaining popularity. The Citroen e-C3, the French automaker's third model to be sold in India, will soon be a new competitor for the Tata Tiago.ev.

Currently, the Tiago.ev costs between Rs. 8.49 lakh and Rs. 11.79 lakh (ex-showroom). Although they were just for the next 10,000 clients when Tiago.ev received the first 10,000 reservations, the costs may shortly rise. The e-C3 is anticipated to cost between Rs. 8 lakh and Rs. 11 lakh (ex-showroom).
