• Dacia has launched the All-New Dacia Spring, the UK’s most affordable new electric car.

    With prices starting at £14,995 (OTR), the five-door crossover debuts in the UK with a choice of mid-range Expression or top-of-the-range Extreme trim levels, offering a range of up to 137 miles (WLTP).

    The Spring comes with a choice of a 45 hp, or a more powerful 65 hp/48 kW motor, which coupled with its lightweight design that makes it the only fully electric car in Europe under one tonne, ensures good performance around town and on the open road. Using its 7kW charger, the compact 26.8 kWh battery can be charged from 20% to 100% on a suitable domestic outlet in less than 11 hours, or in just four hours on a 7kW wall box.

    Luke Broad, Dacia Brand Director for the UK, said: “Spring has played a key part in widespread adoption of EVs across Europe and, with a price that is even lower than speculated, we’re confident it will continue the success story in the UK. We have listened to the concerns of UK drivers regarding accessing EVs, ensuring it not only has an unprecedented price but affordability that doesn’t come at the expense of durability, equipment or usability. Quite simply, there’s no other new EV currently on sale that offers so much for so little.”

    The All-New Dacia Spring will arrive in the UK in October. Pre-orders are open now.
