Dacia shows off its first electric car

Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 3:53pm

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.

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.

Dacia is utilising Groupe Renault’s 10 year experience as pioneer and leader in electric mobility, whose vision is to provide affordable and sustainable mobility accessible to all.

The Spring Electric is in line with this vision, while reinforcing the values and philosophy of the Dacia brand.

The 100 per cent 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 200km (based on WLTP test procedure) which is perfect for urban and suburban use.

The pastel grey exterior 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.

The production version of all-new Dacia Spring Electric will be available from early 2021 in selected markets. No Irish market details have yet been confirmed.
