After Spring, the Dacia electric range could receive a completely new class B model, which will be launched as early as 2026. The information was leaked among the details presented by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance regarding the 23 billion euros that these brands will make in the next five years.
By 2030, the alliance aims to launch no less than 35 zero-emission models. These will be developed on five common platforms, and one of them, called CMF-BEV, would be the basis of the future electric vehicle of the Romanian brand.
The future Dacia electric model will be bigger than Spring
It is about the same architecture on which the new Renault R5 E-Tech will be built and the successor to the Nissan Micra. This means that the future electric model from Dacia will be bigger than Spring. The first electric vehicle in the history of the local manufacturer “sits” on the CMF-AEV platform, which is smaller.
At the same time, Renault officials say that their new platform dedicated to electric vehicles is the most competitive in the world. At the same time, it will be very affordable, reducing costs by up to 33%. Energy consumption will be reduced by more than 10% compared to the current Renault ZOE, he writes Economica.net.
The platform will be officially launched in 2024 and will offer a range of up to 400 kilometers and outstanding aerodynamic performance. By comparison, the Dacia Spring is capable of traveling up to 295 kilometers in urban mode with a single charge.
Until the appearance of the future 100% electric car, Dacia will launch in 2023 the “full-hybrid” version of the new Jogger. Two years later, he will make his debut in the Mioveni range the new Bigster SUV.
The future electric Dacia will be assembled at the Renault plant dedicated to zero-emission cars in the city of Douai in northern France. Production will not start until 2026.
