Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Dacia Spring Electric. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 13h45m 8 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 8h45m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 5 hours 21 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 8h45m 12 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 5 hours 21 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Dacia Spring Electric.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2) *
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 30 kW † 20 kW † 59 min 75 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 30 kW † 20 kW † 59 min 75 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 30 kW † 20 kW † 59 min 75 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Dacia Spring Electric

Pricing

The Dacia Spring Electric has an estimated On The Road Price (OTR) of £17,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Dacia Spring Electric is eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,000. The grant will be applied to the invoice of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Dacia Spring Electric is £14,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Dacia Spring Electric is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Dacia Spring Electric is 33 kW (44 hp). The maximum torque is 92 lb-ft. The Dacia Spring Electric is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 15.0 seconds. The top speed is 78 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Dacia Spring Electric has an estimated total capacity of 26.8 kWh. The usable capacity is 26.8 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 105 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 70 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 165 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 6.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 13 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is available as an option and is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 30 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 20 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 60 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 70 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Dacia Spring Electric is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 159 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 380 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 160 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Dacia Spring Electric emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
