The cheapest electric car available in Hungary will be launched soon, and the full list of equipment has arrived.
Last October, when the Dacia Spring introduced herself, very modest information was available on exactly how well-equipped cars come to us and in what way the buyer, who can own a 6.5 million starting car with 2.5 million state aid for up to 4 million and enjoy the benefits, has to make compromises. all the benefits of electric driving. Now the full price list was unveiled and two types of equipment were immediately introduced at home. Let’s also look at what Spring knows when we look at the extralist.
The Comfort version costs 6.5 million, and the subtype called Comfort Plus is sold for 6.9 million. On both models we will see the exterior door handle painted in the color of the car (this will be omitted from the Spring car entering the community car, carsharing system), the exterior mirrors of the Plus version will be orange and the smooth ones will be black. The roof rail is not subject to a surcharge, just as the buyer will obviously not pay for the decorative steel rims, but for those who want something more interesting instead of the normal white paint, there is a silver, blue, berry red or black metallic finish for a uniform 130 thousand surcharge.
In terms of passive and active safety, according to today’s standards and laws, the list is plentiful, active emergency brake system, ABS, ESC anti-roll bar, ASR traction control, anti-roll bar, rear ISOFIX system, SOS emergency call, and of course a lot of airbags: in addition to driver and side airbags also curtain airbags and front side airbags. There is no extra charge for the electric power steering, on-board computer, as well as LED daytime running lights, tinted glass and air conditioning. There are power windows in the front and rear, and of course the central locking, speed limiter, and Bluetooth handsfree are also part of the basic package.
What is missing from the 6.5 million cars: reversing radar (available for HUF 60,000 or standard with the Comfort Plus package), reversing camera, orange inserts inside and outside, a 7-inch multimedia unit capable of supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mirroring, and navigation system, these need to be expanded to a higher level of equipment, but if someone wants a more discreet look in a better-equipped car, the orange batteries can be replaced with more restrained ones for free.
From the charging cable, the 2.3 kW household slow charger with a 230 V plug is the basic one, a 7.4 kW AC cable can be purchased for 100 thousand, and the 30 kW DC lightning charger connector for 180 thousand forints, so optionally can be requested for the car. We’re certainly not going to love the car because of its driving characteristics, with 44 horsepower, 125 Nm of torque, 15 seconds of 0-100 acceleration and a top speed of 125 km / h, the line of electric cars that don’t really squeeze into the seat really boosts the front wheels and engine. spring in the nose, but the 27.4 kWh full-capacity lithium-ion package can come out with 230km of mixed-use range or 305km of urban range according to the WLTP. The batteries have an 8-year or 120,000-kilometer warranty.
Dacia Spring will go through it as part of a roadshow in May at home Dacia tradesso that everyone can try it and hopefully it will be stably available in the short term.
