True to its reputation as an automotive game changer, Dacia has revealed the next part in its product offensive with the Spring Electric: a concept car previewing its first all-electric model as it joins the zero-emission revolution.
Dacia is utilising Groupe Renault’s 10-year experience as pioneer in electric cars with the market leading ZOE and a collection of light goods vehicles in their portfolio.
The 100% all-electric city car focuses on the essentials, combining simplicity, reliability, and accessibility. The production version of the Dacia Spring Electric will be available in the first half of 2021, with a range of more than 124 miles (based on WLTP test procedure) which is perfect for urban and suburban use.
The pastel grey exterior of the pre-production model is enhanced with matte splashes of fluorescent orange, with trim along the wings, roof bars, and lower door panel, extra high clearance and skid plates built into the front and rear bumpers. Its assertive SUV style and compact dimensions at 3.73m long, makes it the ideal vehicle for everyday use.
Special attention has been paid to the design of the front lights with the all-LED headlights fitted in two ways: a horizontal strip on the upper section, and four graphic features built into the bumper, while the four full-LED lights at the rear create a ‘double-Y’ effect. This look previews future of Dacia’s lighting design.
With its all-electric powertrain and battery adapted for everyday use, the Dacia Spring Electric meets the practical needs of urban and suburban mobility. It is a robust vehicle which gives private and fleet owners the full range of benefits of electric vehicles: low running costs, ease of driving, silent operation, zero-emissions, simple to charge and easy to maintain.
In just 15 years Dacia has grown to more 6.5 million customers worldwide across the Logan, Sandero and Duster models. The Spring Electric showcases the next step in its success story as it continues to change with the times while staying true to its original values of creating vehicles which are simple, modern, reliable and affordable.
The production version of all-new Dacia Spring Electric will be available from early 2021 in selected markets.
