New Delhi: French car manufacturer Citroën is a new company for the Indian market. Citroën has not been in India for a long time but the company is performing quite well. In the year 2022, there was a tremendous boom in Citroën. The sales of this car have increased by 883% on an annual basis.

The growth seen in the sales of Citroën on an annual basis is much higher than all the big car brands like Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata Motors, Mahindra, Kia, Toyota, and Honda. The Citroën C3 comes with two engine options – 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol (82PS/115Nm) and 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine (110PS/190Nm) and customers get the option of a 5-speed manual gearbox and 6-speed manual gearbox. The diesel engine option is not available in the car. There is no AMT option in it as of now.


How much growth of which company
Talk about the sales growth of other companies, then in the year 2022, 15 percent growth was seen in the sales of Maruti Suzuki. At the same time, 9 percent increase in Hyundai sales, and a 59 percent increase in Tata Motors sales. At the same time, there was an increase of 65 percent in Mahindra’s sales, 40 percent in Kia’s sales, 23 percent in Toyota’s sales, and 7 percent in Honda’s sales.

Whereas, in comparison to them, 883 percent growth has been seen in the sales of Citroën. It is clear that the company is rapidly strengthening its hold in India and the company is eyeing a large market share. However, it currently has only two models available for sale in the Indian market.

These two models sell
Currently, Citroën only sells the Citroën C5 Aircross and the Citroën C3 models in India. Of these, the sales of the Citroen C3 are higher than those of the C5. The reason for this is that it is a budget car and costs around Rs.6 lakh. This car has played an important role in the growth of the company.
