The new Dacia Spring electric was finally unveiled, where it is an affordable Mini SUV where its “home” will be the big city and beyond. It is a very important model for the Romanian company and even Luca De Meo described it as the “Logan of electric cars”.
And of course what the CEO of Renault said is of great importance since the Dacia Logan is a symbol since it managed to reinvent the term “affordable car”. As Denis Le Vot (Executive Vice-President Regions, Sales and Marketing) reported, Dacia managed to brake the codes and surprise the markets.
Denis Le Vot also told of Duster’s excellent commercial career and that in the last 15 years Dacia has sold 6.8 million cars in 44 markets around the world. The next revolution is coming today, he said, with Dacia Spring electric.
The new Dacia Spring electric will be one of the most affordable 100% electric vehicles in Europe. It has SUV style, has enough distance from the ground and external appearance where it is perfectly acceptable.
The Dacia Spring electric has an electric motor that drives the front wheels at 33 kW and has a torque of 125 Nm. The battery has a capacity of 28.6 kWh has compact dimensions and is mounted on the back of the car. This combination gives autonomy of 225 km or 140 miles in WLTP measurement.
With a simple household outlet the battery takes about 14 hours to fully charge, with Wallbox 3.7 kW it takes almost 8.5 hours to fully charge, while with Wallbox 7.4 kW the time is reduced to less than 5 hours. With a 30 kW speed charger, the battery charges at 80% in less than 1 hour.
It also has multiple charging solutions and Denis Le Vot says it is the ideal vehicle for the city and for electric cars sharing service. It also has an impressive luggage compartment of up to 300 lit. The new Dacia Spring electric will be available in early 2021.
But what was not announced was some indication of the price it will have on the European market. We hope that this question will be resolved in the next few days.
