Dacia Spring orders open with finance from £169 a month

Dacia has officially opened orders for its new budget EV, the Spring.

The Spring is the UK’s cheapest new electric car, with prices starting from £14,995, and finance deals starting at £169 per month.

UK buyers have the option of two trim levels and two powertrains, with the entry level price for the Expression 45 model.

An additional £1,000, or £10 per month on a four-year PCP deal, brings a step up to the more powerful ‘65’ variant in entry level Expression trim. Another £10 per month or £1,000 on the cash price moves buyers up to the range-topping Extreme 65 model.

Dacia will also allow customers to bundle the cost of a new home charger into their monthly payments from £20 per month.

All versions of the Spring use a 26.8kWh battery that offers up to 137 miles of range on a change. The lower-spec ‘45’ model uses a 44bhp motor while the ‘65’ has a 64bhp unit driving the front wheels.

The Expression trim comes with a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, media control system with USB port, cruise control, air conditioning, remote central locking with remote control, electric front windows, rear parking sensors, 12V socket, manual air conditioning and 14-inch wheels (15 inches on ‘65’ models).

The Extreme trim only comes with the 64bhp powertrain and adds copper interior and exterior finishes, electric mirrors and rear windows, a 10-inch central multimedia touchscreen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, two USB ports and a bi-directional charger allowing owners to power external appliances from the Spring’s battery.

Orders for the new Dacia Spring are open now online or via all Dacia dealers, with first deliveries expected later this year.
