The electric model of the local car, Dacia Spring is experiencing a further price increase. From April 2022, Dacia’s only 100% electric vehicle will be as expensive as the best-known brands.

The price was valid for the only possible variant, Confort Plus, which benefited from several safety features, including speed limiter, ABS, ESP, electronic brake force distribution, but also an emergency button and six airbags. In addition to these features, the most experienced could optionally order the DC 30 kW fast charging adapter and a Mode 2 – 10A charging cable.
However, this variant did not reach Romania, reverting to the only variant available in 2021, Comfort Plus. The first price increase took place on November 8, 2021, when the price was 19,100 euros. Even so, this price was also not final, and as of April 2022 the basic version now costs 20,300 euros.
