The electrification of our streets continues with the unveiling by Dacia of their Spring Electric: a concept car previewing its first all-electric model as it joins the silent revolution.
The Spring Electric, with its all-electric powertrain and battery, is adapted for everyday urban and suburban use. It seeks to meet the practical needs of urban and suburban mobility. It comes with a robust SUV design, which aims to give 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 15 years, Dacia has grown to more 6.5 million customers worldwide across the Logan, Sandero and Duster models. Courtesy of its parent company Renault, it is no surprise to see Dacia bring an electric offering to market with this Spring Electric. It will also be of little surprise that the customer response will be akin to the enthusiasm shown in showrooms nationwide.
The Spring Electric is a 100% all-electric city-car that promises to carry on the Dacia ethos, 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 will suit the urban and suburban user.
The Electric Spring concept is styled as an SUV. It is dressed in pastel grey exterior, 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. At under four metres, the Electric Spring’s dimensions are a compact 3.73m long, which should appeal to the majority.
The design of the front lights are 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.
The production version of all-new Dacia Spring Electric will be available from early 2021 in selected markets.
