Cut-price Renault-based electric city car is set to be the cheapest zero-emissions model in Europe
From the outside, it partly echoes the look of Dacia’s petrol and diesel-powered Duster SUV, with wide wheelarches, roof bars, a reinforced front rocker panel and raised ground clearance compared to a conventional hatchback. It’s still a pretty compact vehicle, measuring 3.7 metres long, 1.6 metres wide and 1.5 metres high.
Up front, the charging port is concealed beneath the Dacia logo, while there are also tapered LED lights with a horizontal line that extends into the grille. The Spring’s rear lights feature a Y-shaped LED signature, while the launch version is available with an optional ‘Orange Pack’ to add a splash of bright colour to various exterior elements.
Interior and practicality
Inside the Spring gets the type of straightforward, no-frills interior we’ve come to expect in Dacia cars. The brand promises comfortable accommodation of up to four adults inside, with generous head and kneeroom, as well as 23 litres of storage space up front and a 300-litre boot capacity (expanding to 600 with the rear seats dropped down).
Equipment and specifications
Like other Dacias, the Spring is quite sparsely equipped in its most basic form in order to keep its price down, but manual air-conditioning, parking assistance, a seven-inch multimedia and sat-nav system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, power-adjustable mirrors and a spare wheel all feature on the options list.
Key safety equipment comes as standard, however; this comprises anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, six airbags, emergency call (SOS button), automatic headlight activation and automatic emergency braking.
Car sharing and commercial versions
In addition to selling the Spring to private buyers, Dacia is developing two specialised versions aimed at the car-sharing and urban delivery sectors.
The car-sharing version is available in either white and light grey, with durable, stain-resistant seat trim, front door and boot sills, front and rear floor mats, black grained handles and mirrors for greater durability and 14-inch wheels. In the passenger compartment, car-sharing apps can be accessed on the screen thanks to smartphone replication, while navigation and parking assistance also feature.
The Spring Electric Cargo commercial version has a boot where the back seat is usually found, with a plastic lining on the floor and interior wheelarches, four anchor rings and a wire mesh partition separating the front-seat occupants from the load area. It boasts a one-metre load length, a cargo volume of 800 litres and a maximum payload of 325kg.
Available in white, the Spring Electric Cargo comes with manual air-conditioning, a digital radio and smartphone holder, fabric upholstery, black grained exterior handles and mirrors and 14-inch wheels.
