Formalized last October, the Dacia Spring had still not revealed its main asset: its price. This is now done with the publication by Renault, the parent company of Dacia, of the price list for the compact electric SUV. The “Logan of the electric car” can be sold from 12,403 euros (ecological bonus included). An expected time of less than 10,000 euros, the Spring is positioned slightly above this price, which does not prevent it from becoming the cheapest electric vehicle on the French market. Its price is, in fact, lower than the Seat Mii Electric or the Skoda Citigo e IV.
Not expensive enough for the full rate ecological bonus
In fact, the Spring will be available in three different models. The consumer version, which pre-orders will open on March 20, has two trim levels (comfort and comfort plus). Therefore, its price excluding ecological bonus varies from 16,990 euros to 18,490 euros. Given the reduced price of the vehicle, the state boost applies in a different way. The theoretical 7,000 euros (6,000 from July 1) are capped at 27% of the amount of the car. In the case of the Spring, the price of the two finishes is therefore 12,403 euros for the classic version and 13,498 euros for the best equipped model.
The differences between the two trim levels are quite substantial. The “techno pack” for example (which allows you to connect your smartphone to a 7-inch screen), the reversing camera, the spare wheel or certain colors are only available with the Comfort plus version. Another notable detail: the 30 kW DC Combo socket option (at 600 euros) is only available on the most expensive finish.
Two “Pro” versions
As for the other two versions of the vehicle, they do not concern individuals. This is a “Business” version for companies and car-sharing fleets and a “cargo” version, without a rear seat, intended for craftsmen. The latter should be available from 2022.

As a reminder, the Dacia Spring is a compact electric SUV based on the K-ZE, a vehicle marketed by Renault on the Chinese market. It has a small 33 kW electric motor (44 hp equivalent) and a 26.8 kWh battery which would allow it to travel between 230 and 305 km of range (according to WLTP and WLTP City certifications). Finally, Dacia also offers its Spring for hire (LLD) from 89 euros / month (ecological bonus and conversion bonus included). Pre-orders for Spring open on March 20, each new customer will receive a badge to recharge the Plugsurfing network. As for buyers of the Comfort Plus version, they will be offered 2,000 km of recharging on this network with 30,000 recharging points in France.
