Dacia’s first all-electric car
Dacia, the Romanian car manufacturer, has released its first all-electric vehicle, the Dacia Spring. This compact car is packed with features that make it a reliable and efficient choice for drivers.
One of the standout features of the Dacia Spring is its electric engine. With a power output of 33 kW (45 PS), this engine delivers strong performance, and the 125 Nm (92.2 lb-ft) torque is available from the moment you start accelerating. The Spring is also a lightweight car, weighing just 970 kg, which helps to improve its efficiency and handling.
In terms of safety, the Dacia Spring is well-equipped, with standard features such as ABS, EBD, ESP, and six airbags. It also has power steering, which makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces.
The Spring’s 24.7 kWh battery pack provides a range of 230 km according to the WLTP measurement cycle. Activating the Eco-button on the dashboard can extend this range by about 10% by optimizing the car’s energy use. The charging time for the Spring varies depending on the source, with a range of 14 hours using a standard socket to just 1.5 hours with a 30 kW DC source.
The list price for the Dacia Spring full Electric is approximately €18100, but it is possible to purchase the vehicle for half this amount if certain government incentives are applied. These incentives, which are often designed to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles, can greatly reduce the cost of purchasing a new car. As a result, it is worth checking with your local government to see if you are eligible for any incentives or rebates that may be available.
Dacia Spring is a solid choice for drivers looking for an affordable and reliable all-electric vehicle. With its strong performance, range, and safety features, it is sure to be a popular choice among consumers.
