Get ready, The highly anticipated Dacia Spring is finally making its way to the UK in 2024, and it's bringing some serious upgrades with it. The game-changing all-electric city car has already taken Europe by storm, and it's not hard to see why. With its unbeatable value and impressive features, the Spring has quickly become the most affordable new electric car on the market.
Since its launch in 2021, the Spring has already racked up over 120,000 customer orders, and it's not hard to see why. This five-door supermini is the perfect companion for everyday travel, offering a simple, fun, and efficient formula that drivers just can't get enough of. And with three-quarters of all sales going to individual customers, it's clear that the Spring is a hit with retail car buyers as well.
But what really sets the Spring apart is its ability to meet the needs of European customers. Data collected from the car's connected services has shown that the average daily commute lasts under 20 miles and is covered at 16mph. And with 75% of customers charging their Spring at home for an average of 3.5 hours, it's clear that this car is perfectly suited for urban areas.
Luke Broad, Dacia Brand Director for the UK, said:
“We are thrilled that Dacia Spring will come to the UK in 2024. It will certainly be worth the wait! It will literally plug a gap in the UK electric car market for a highly usable, quality EV that won’t break the bank and which makes electric vehicle ownership more realistic than ever. With over 120,000 customers already sold on the Spring’s unbeatable, ‘no-nonsense’ blend of value, efficiency and durability, UK car buyers can look forward to an EV that’s perfectly aligned to their mobility requirements and, importantly, is done the Dacia way.”
Xavier Martinet, Dacia SVP Sales, Marketing and Operations added:
“The UK is an important market for us, so we are delighted to strengthen our range with the Dacia Spring. With UK sales surging year-on-year and many British car buyers having a recognised appetite for the brand, it is now the right time to introduce a pure electric vehicle. Spring has democratised electric vehicle ownership in Europe, offering people the chance to enjoy sustainable driving without the often-associated price premium. I’m confident that Spring will we be as popular in the UK as it has proved throughout the rest of Europe.”
Full details, including timings, pricing and specifications, will be announced in 2024.
