Electric and accessible: this is Dacia’s formula for sustainability. The brand of the Renault group (the latter part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance), enters the lithium-ion car sector with the expected Spring, the first 100% model on tap in the A segment, namely that of the compact cars urban in size.
The strategy of the Romanian brand has long been guided by the strong appeal of the quality / price ratio: functional cars with an accessible price list.
The electric city car draws on the experience that the French group has gained over the years. In fact, the platform (Cmf-a) and the mechanics are the same as the Renault City K-Ze, a 100% draft car that the Losanga company already produces and sells in China, the first market for electric vehicles and the country where it is produced. also Spring. Aesthetically it has a strong resemblance to its sister Sandero: a robust line with elements from the world of SUVs, including enlarged wheel arches, roof bars, reinforced front underbody, rear skis and greater ground clearance. The front reveals a strong personality with LED light clusters, whose horizontal line continues in the design of the (full) grille, bonnet with wide ribs and large bumper.
Its sturdy structure portends a great interior habitability and yet Spring is a true city car with small dimensions: 3.73 meters long, 1.62 meters wide and 1.51 meters high. Nonetheless, it can accommodate up to 4 passengers on board, offering a load capacity of 300 liters (up to 600 liters by lowering the rear seats).
The interior is essential and the plastics quite cheap. The driver can count on a small 3.5-inch digital display while the optional on-board equipment includes the Media Nav multimedia system including a 7 “touchscreen, navigator, radio, compatibility with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Bluetooth and Usb. .
