The All-New Dacia Duster will be available in three powertrain options:
All-New Dacia Duster HYBRID 140: This powertrain is built with tried and tested technologies from Renault Group. It comprises a 4-cylinder, 1.6-litre, 94-hp petrol engine, two electric motors (a 49-hp powerplant and a high-voltage starter generator), and an electric automatic gearbox (with 4 engine ratios and 2 motor ratios). The system is clutchless, which makes it possible to drive in all-electric mode up to 80% of the time in cities, reducing consumption by 20% (mixed cycle) to 40% (urban cycle). The regenerative braking, the 1.2 kWh (230 V) battery’s high energy recovery capacity, and the gearbox’s efficiency make it an eco-friendly option.
All-New Dacia Duster TCe 130: This powertrain provides an initial degree of electrification. It combines a new-generation 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine using the Miller cycle (reduced pump losses optimise efficiency) and a 48 V mild hybrid motor. The motor aids the internal combustion engine when the car starts or accelerates, reducing average consumption and CO2 emissions by about 10% compared to an internal combustion engine with equivalent power. It also provides more power during acceleration than the existing TCe 130 model, making the vehicle more responsive and smoother. The regenerative braking system charges the 0.9 kWh battery without making a noticeable difference for the driver. The TCe 130 powertrain is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox in the 4x2 and 4x4 versions.
All-New Dacia Duster TCe 100 Bi-Fuel: A dual fuel (petrol and LPG) option available on all internal combustion models under the Bi-Fuel label. Dacia is the only carmaker to provide this option, making it the unchallenged LPG leader in Europe. The All-New Duster has this built-in tried and tested technology that guarantees safety and reliability. On average, when running on LPG, the All-New Duster TCe 100 Bi-Fuel releases 10% less CO2 than a comparable petrol engine. It can drive up to 1,300 km (WLTP) with its two tanks holding 100 litres between them – 50 litres of petrol and 50 litres of LPG (the latter is under the boot floor, so it does not affect cargo capacity). A button built seamlessly into the dashboard switches the engine from one fuel to the other instantly and imperceptibly.
