Comments

Due to its pure electric powertrain and light weight, Dacia's compact city car receives full points in three out of four tests, with energy consumption which is lower than Green NCAP's maximum-points threshold. The consumption is significantly increased in the highway test and this is where a fraction of a point is lost. 89% of the energy withdrawn from the electrical grid is available at the output side of the battery, indicating an efficient charging and discharging process. The Spring's top speed is limited to 125 km/h and the results shall be compared to those of other cars with caution.

Comments

The Greenhouse Gas Index is based on a Well-to-Wheel+ approach, meaning that the greenhouse gas emissions related to the supply of energy are added to the tailpipe emissions, but not yet the emissions of the vehicle's production. Since the Dacia Spring is a battery electric vehicle, its greenhouse gas emissions originate only from the upstream processes of electricity supply. Thanks to the low energy consumption of the vehicle and the relatively low CO2 emissions of European electricity production, the Spring scores maximum points in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

Dacia's new electric model - the Spring - is a compact city vehicle of a SUV design. Its modest power of 33 kW limits the dynamic characterisitcs, but will appeal to those looking for functional, clean, efficient and affordable individual urban mobility. At 23°C ambient temperature, a driving range of about 140 km can be expected on the Highway. The test results prove the Spring to be an environmentally friendly car, not only due to the absence of local pollutant emissions but also because of its low energy consumption. With 5 Green Stars and an overall index of 9.9, Dacia's super mini sets an example to others.
