Dacia Spring to come to the UK
The Dacia Spring, already Europe's most affordable new electric car, lives up to Dacia's reputation for offering value. It has already proved a resounding success throughout Europe, with a huge number of drivers won over by its selection of features and attractive price. Introduced in 2021, the five-door supermini has made electric mobility widely accessible, with more than 120,000 customer orders placed since its launch. It also made a significant contribution to Dacia increasing its global sales in 2022 by 6.8% year-on-year against a highly challenging and receding market.
Even more impressive is that three quarters of all sales have been made to individual customers, with retail car buyers finding that the Spring's simple, fun and efficient formula makes it the perfect companion for everyday travel. Often purchased as a household's second car, Spring is the main means of transport during the week for 90% of multiple-vehicle households who own one.
Data collected from the Spring's connected services has provided an insight into how the full four-seat hatchback has met European customers' requirements, and how it could fit in with the needs of UK drivers whose travel is mostly in urban areas. On average, customers' daily commutes last under 20 miles and are covered at 16mph, while in 75% of cases, the Spring is charged at home for an average duration of 3.5 hours.
