French carmaker Citroen will launch its C3 Aircross Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) in India by October, and is betting big on exports from India to markets like South Africa, ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and Nepal, a top company executive told Business Standard.

Citroen, which sold 6,000 units through Citroën C3 and C5 Aircross SUV, is likely to double its sales during the current year, as it has already sold 6,000 units of Citroën C3 and eC3 electric vehicles during the first six months.

“We are going to start bookings for the C3 Aircross SUV in September and launch it in October. Price will be at the heart of the midsize SUV market,” said Saurabh Vatsa, Citroen India branch head, report agencies.

The company is also poised to launch a new vehicle on the C-cubed platform by early next year.

“Earlier, we said we will be launching three vehicles on a C-cubed platform. Now, we are going to launch the fourth one by early next year,” he explained. 

Stellantis, which came into existence after the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the French PSA Group in 2021, currently sells its Jeep and Citroen brands in the country.
