Dacia is opening a new chapter in its history with the launch of all-new Spring, the brand’s first 100% electric car.
Dacia benefits from the unique know-how and experience acquired by the Renault Group and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, pioneers of electric mobility for over 10 years.
Priced at €12,403 after government incentives in France, Dacia Spring is the most affordable electric car in Europe, making electric mobility accessible to the greatest number of people.
Beneath its SUV look lies a city car with record-breaking roominess with 4 real seats, a simple and reliable electric engine and a range of 230 km (WLTP) and 305 km in the city (WLTP city).
The 33 kW (44 hp equivalent) all-electric power engine is coupled with a 27.4 kWh battery. Operating without oil and with far fewer moving parts than on combustion motors (e.g. no transmission belt), the All-New Spring electric motor is simple, reliable and robust.
The All-New Dacia Spring charges via a connector located behind the logo on the front grill. Controls to unlock the flap are located under the steering wheel inside the car. When plugged in, the All-New Spring instrument panel displays the following information: active charge indicator, the current charge percent, time until full-charge, and the available range in kilometres given the current charge level.
Thanks to the free MY Dacia app, you can use your smartphone to check battery charge levels and remaining autonomy range, and locate your car, all in real time. When the All-New Spring is plugged in, you can use the app to turn on pre-entry climate control (air conditioning/heating), check up on recharge progress, and pause/resume battery charging.
In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), you can choose to activate/deactivate the sending of private data thanks to a button on lower dash. The data used by MY Dacia app pertain primarily to the vehicle’s location and serial number.
The All-New Spring comes with a wide range of charging options: a 220V domestic outlet or Green’Up socket with Flexicharger cable (mode 2); a 7.4 kW Wallbox with a unique cable (mode 3); or a 30 kW DC terminal with built-in charging cable.
The Li-ion battery charge time is:
• Less than one hour for 80% charge, and less 1.5 hours for a 100% charge on a 30 kW DC terminal
• Less than 5 hours for a 100% charge on a 7.4 kW Wallbox
• Less than 8.5 hours for a 100% charge on a 3.7 kW Wallbox
• Less than 14 hours for a 100% charge on a 2.3 kW domestic outlet
There are 200,000 self-service charge stations available throughout Europe, with 43,700 in the Netherlands, approximately 33,000 in Germany, and nearly 30,000 in France.
The Dacia Spring Electric is guaranteed for three years and 100,000 km (62,140 miles) and its battery eight years and 120,000 km (74,600 miles).
All-New Dacia Spring can be pre-ordered from 20 March 2021 for first deliveries in autumn.
