Dacia has revolutionized the automotive sector with its economic model and its vehicles. The Logan democratized the new car from 2004, the Duster has shaken up the SUV segment, while the Sandero is the best-selling car on the European retail market and has just been revamped to redefine the essential contemporary car.
Dacia is now writing a new chapter in its history with the unveiling of its first all-electric model. An arrival on the electric city car market announced in March 2020 with the presentation of the Dacia Spring Electric show-car.
The Dacia Spring Electric is now available in its standard version with two new versions for new mobilities: a version adapted to car-sharing for shared electric urban mobility, and a cargo utility vehicle, for last-mile deliveries with no pollutant emissions.
The Spring is a revolution: as the lowest-priced electric city car on the European market, it makes electric mobility even more accessible. With its disruptive SUV look, it boasts unprecedented roominess, a simple and reliable electric engine and a reassuring driving range. It is a versatile and practical city car.
Electric mobility is gradually becoming part of our daily lives. As pioneers of electric mobility, Groupe Renault and the Alliance have acquired ten years of unique experience in the world. In Europe, one electric car in five is produced by Groupe Renault. More than 30,000 employees are trained in the specifics of electric mobility.
Dacia is adapting electric mobility to its philosophy of offering a contemporary car that meets essential needs: The Spring is a small, spacious, robust electric car offered at an unbeatable price.
Orders for the All-new New Dacia Spring Electric will open in spring 2021 with a simple range and commercial offer: a battery included in the purchase price and two trim levels.
A ‘TRENDY’ CITY CAR WITH A DISRUPTIVE LOOK
Dacia’s first small city car, the Spring Electric breaks the codes of the ‘conventional’ electric car. Its high ground clearance, wheel arches and roof bars give it the perfect adventurous look for braving the urban jungle.
Its assertive design features attributes from the world of SUVs, such as wider wheel arches, roof bars, reinforced front rocker panel, rear ski and raised ground clearance (150 mm unladen). With its broad shoulders and curved bonnet, the Spring boasts a sturdy look, while its reassuring stature suggests generous interior space. Yet despite all expectations, the Spring Electric is a true city car with modest dimensions: it is just 3.73 m long, 1.62 m wide (excluding wing mirrors) and 1.51 m high.
BOLD FRONT END
The Dacia Spring Electric certainly does not go unnoticed. Its front end exudes a strong personality with tapered LED lights whose horizontal line is extended into the design of the grille, a ribbed bonnet and a large bumper. A distinctive sign of electric vehicles, the Spring’s front grille is total. It’s ultra-modern design with 3D elements stylishly concealing the charging socket which opens from the passenger compartment.
A NEW LIGHTING SIGNATURE
The rear lights are fitted with the new Dacia Y-shaped lighting signature.
REMARKABLE ‘ORANGE PACK’
The Dacia Spring Electric fully assumes its bold look, which is topped off by a colour pack available on the launch version: the mirrors, the decorative part of the roof bars and the ring under the front grille are orange. With this equipment, electric mobility is stylish and fun.
The Spring Electric’s wheel trims aesthetically imitate alloy wheels. This is possible thanks to Flexwheel technology: sheet-metal rims are perforated for stylish wheel trims to be fitted – an aesthetic and cost-effective solution should they need to be changed.
