The first electric Dacia opens its pre-orders in a few days from 12,403 euros bonus included. The first deliveries are scheduled for this fall.
It was due to arrive on March 1. It is therefore with a small delay that the Spring arrives in the Dacia catalog, in pre-order at first. The brand’s first electric car, the city car thus displays its prices and its full range.
The cheapest electric on the market
In the end, the leaks got it right. The Dacia Spring starts at a price of 12,403 euros including bonus. This “Comfort” model is displayed at the catalog price of 16,990 euros, where the bonus limited to 27% applies. Serial, the equipment is minimal, but incorporates air conditioning or the radio with Bluetooth / USB.
The second “Comfort Plus” finish climbs to € 18,490, or € 13,498 after bonus. It brings the 7-inch central screen with GPS, reversing camera, metallic paint or orange elements.
For professionals, a Dacia Spring Business level exists. It inherits an even more attractive price, at € 16,800 or € 12,264 after bonus. Finally, the utility version VU Dacia Spring Cargo will not arrive until 2022.
Spring in LLD from 89 € / month
In LLD, the Dacia Spring starts at 89 € / month in Comfort, and 94 € / month in Comfort Plus. Please note, this includes the bonus and the conversion premium of € 2,500, reducing the first increased rent to 0. This offer is valid for a contract of 49 months and 40,000 km.
However, we can see the optional 30 kW Combo rapid charger. This therefore limits the charging power in series to 6.6 kW, where it takes around 4:40 for a full tank. With the Combo, it only takes 45 minutes to recover 80% of energy.
On the roads this fall
The Dacia Spring will open its pre-orders from March 20. However, patience is required, as deliveries will not begin until this fall.
To compensate, the brand offers 2,000 km of charging (or 238 kWh capacity), only for the Comfort Plus version. Dacia is also providing a charging badge based on the Plugsurfing network. Incidentally, the final autonomy has increased to 230 km WLTP and 305 km in the city. This is because of the useful capacity, now at 27.4 kWh (compared to 26.8 kWh previously).
It remains to be seen when the electric city car will join Leclerc’s 5 € / day rental offer, which was due to start on March 15.
