Dacia has introduced its revamped Spring model, a zero-emissions city car that’s anticipated to cost below £16,000.  


Under the hood, the Spring maintains its choice of electric powertrains, offering 44bhp and 64bhp motor options. Despite minimal changes in this area, the vehicle's compact design, featuring a 26.8kWh battery, ensures an impressive range of over 130 miles on a single charge. 


Externally, the Spring boasts a significant overhaul, diverging from mere cosmetic updates. Retaining only the original model's roof panel, it sports a robust new appearance with a redesigned front end that aligns with Dacia's latest design language, as seen on the updated Duster. 


Replaceable plastic body cladding meanwhile enhances its appeal and durability against everyday wear and tear.


Inside, the Spring reveals comprehensive upgrades, featuring a completely reimagined dashboard layout. 


All variants come equipped with a seven-inch digital instrument panel, while the base Expression trim opts for a smartphone holder where the infotainment display would be. In contrast, the top-tier 


Extreme trim includes a 10-inch touchscreen with modern functionalities such as over-the-air updates, live navigation, and smartphone integration.


Despite the upgrades, the Spring retains its compact dimensions, offering a surprisingly spacious boot with 308 litres of capacity, expandable to 1,004 litres, alongside the option for a 'frunk' for additional storage.


With a history of success in continental Europe, where it surpassed sales of 140,000 units since its 2021 debut, the Spring's UK launch marks a strategic move by Dacia amidst growing demand for sustainable transportation solutions. 


Official price and pre-order details for this new one is set to be announced on 12 March, and the first deliveries are expected in the autumn.
