Dacia’s new $25K Spring puts the ‘EVs are too expensive’ argument to bed


Romanian automaker Dacia’s new electric car is cheap, very cheap. So cheap it’ll wipe the smug smile off Dave’s face as he tries to convince you that EVs are “too expensive” – ​​he’ll probably spill his ill-chosen pint of lager, too.

Earlier this week, the low-budget brand began taking orders for its new Spring EV in Germany.

Thanks to the very generous subsidies for plug-in cars in the European nation, buyers could purchase the entry-level model for just $ 12,995 (€ 10,920). Without the grant, it would cost $ 24,384 (€ 20,490).

Even though this is the base model, it still comes with air conditioning and a Bluetooth enabled radio.

The more expensive Comfort Plus model has a 7-inch touchscreen navigation system, parking sensors, rear view camera, metallic paint, and optional quick charger.

Despite all the extra kit, the Comfort Plus is still more affordable than a thoroughbred racehorse. This will cost you $ 14,542 (€ 12,220) with the grant of $ 11,389 (€ 9,570).
