Could an all-electric Dacia SUV be coming to the UK?
Say hello to the Spring Electric – Dacia’s all-new EV. Taking the form of a small crossover, these pictures show what the company’s first electric model will look like.
However, it’s yet to be confirmed if it’ll be available in the UK. Here’s what you need to know.
The Spring EV is under 4 metres long, which makes it round the same size as the Sandero in length. The low headlights and high grille give it a similar look to the old Citroen C4 Cactus and Hyundai Kona, although it’s likely to undercut both those cars on price.
However, it’s taller and roomier inside, with Dacia confirming it gets 300 litres of boot space and enough room for four adults to travel in relative comfort.
The driver gets a 3.5in digital display that includes key info about the electric drivetrain, while a 7in touchscreen infotainment system will be available as an option.
Designed with urban travel in mind, it gets an electric motor producing around 50hp that’s powered by a 26.8kWh battery pack; not exactly powerful, but enough to give it a 140-mile range between charges.
What do you think of this cut-price EV? Would you consider one if it became available in the UK?
