Dacia is no stranger to revolution and their latest wonder is the compact Dacia Spring Electric which offers a 140-mile range (WLTP ), but alas, there are no plans for it to be sold in Ireland.
Dacia boasts to having revolutionised the new car market with its economic model and existing range of vehicles. It says that the Logan democratised the new car in 2004, the Duster has shaken up the SUV segment. The rugged Duster was the second-best-selling car in Europe and the most popular SUV at times last year.
The Sandero too hit the headlines as the best-selling car on the European retail market (private purchases when new business/ fleet car sales are removed. And Dacia reminds us that the Sandero has just been revamped to further enhance its appeal.
All new Dacia Spring Electric
Dacia also says that it is now writing a new chapter in its history with the unveiling of its first all-electric model. The Dacia Spring Electric concept car was first shown in March 2020, marking Dacia’s arrival on the electric city car market.
Now, Dacia has revealed the full production version of the Spring Electric, however it will not be available in Ireland. Two new options will be available in continental Europe for use across different mobility reasons. These are a version for car-sharing for shared electric urban mobility, and a cargo utility vehicle, for last-mile deliveries with no tailpipe emissions.
Not to dwell on it, as we can’t buy one here, but the Spring is a revolution. It is the lowest-priced electric city car on the European market, and Dacia says that it makes electric mobility even more accessible. With its disruptive SUV design, it boasts a spacious cabin, 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 and, as pioneers in this area, Groupe Renault and the Alliance have ten years of unique experience. In Europe, one in five electric cars is produced by Groupe Renault, while 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.
