After the recently published teaser on Dacia France’s “X” (Twitter) account with the description “Coming soon…stay tuned!”, Dacia has unveiled the new redesigned Dacia Spring.
Dacia Spring was premiered four years ago, and two years later the front fascia and the new Dacia logo were redesigned. Last year it was introduced with the Extreme equipment with more functions and power. Dacia Spring is powered by an electric motor with a power of 45 or 65 HP (34 – 48 kW), and is equipped with a 26.8 kWh battery that enables a range of between 220 and 225 kilometers WLTP.
The new redesigned edition brings a revised front grille, front LED lights, new logo, redesigned fenders, while the charging socket remains in the center of the hood. Redesigned rear part reminiscent of the Sandero Stepway with LED lights connected by a black strip, which also integrates the brand name. Despite the improvements, the car still weighs less than a ton (984 kg). Dacia also offers a wide range of body colors (6) including two new ones: Safari Beige and Brick Red.
The interior of the new Dacia Spring is now much more practical. The seats are covered with dark eco leather with brown stitching. The steering wheel is adjustable in height for the first time, and behind it is a digital instrument panel with a 7-inch adjustable screen. The media control system is standard from the Essential and Expression packages. Also, the volume of the luggage space has been increased to 308 liters.
Dacia has also taken care of passenger safety, so now the new Spring is equipped with an automatic emergency braking system with the function of detecting vehicles, pedestrians and motorcyclists, a system for recognizing traffic signs with a warning for exceeding the permitted speed, rear parking assistance, an emergency stop signal, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, driver attention control system, and emergency call (eCall).
When it comes to the powertrain, the Dacia Spring is still powered by a single electric motor with 45 or 65 hp (34 – 48 kW). It is equipped with a 26.8 kWh battery that enables a range of 220 kilometers. Many will say that the range is too short, but research has shown that buyers of this model drive an average of 37 kilometers per day, so 220 km is quite enough.
The price has not been announced.
