Dacia Spring voted “The Best Buy Car of 2022” winner

  • Spring has just been awarded “The Best Buy Car of Europe 2022” by the European AUTOBEST Jury
  • The Spring success story is more than ever on the move

Spring voted “Autobest – BEST BUY CAR OF EUROPE 2022”

The AUTOBEST jury, composed of journalists from 32 European countries, voted Spring winner of The Best Buy Car of Europe 2022.

With a comfortable lead, the jury chose Dacia Spring as both the best and most affordable vehicle in the competition. And this is a big first, because for the first time in its 21-year history, the AUTOBEST jury voted a 100% electric vehicle as the winner.

Following on from last week's Good Deal award at the Automobile Awards, this latest accolade rewards Dacia's vision of 100% electric mobility: essential and accessible to all.

A true success story 100% Dacia & 100% Electric

Launched at the end of March 2021, Dacia Spring has immediately found its audience with over 43,000 orders.

And for good reason: Spring makes 100% electric mobility simple and offers everything that is essential for customers (navigation, air conditioning, electric windows, smartphone replication, etc.) at a price unmatched in Europe.

Underneath the compact SUV look lies record-breaking roominess with four real seats, an efficient and reliable electric motor, and a range of up to 305 km (WLTP City cycle – 230 km in WLTP Combined cycle).

We are very proud to win the AUTOBEST 2022 award. This prize confirms Dacia's determination to always offer its customers what really makes sense to them. Simple and accessible to all, Spring is well in tune with the times. I would like to thank the members of the AUTOBEST jury for inviting us to continue in this way.

In addition to the Best Buy Car of Europe 2022 award, Dacia Spring also achieved excellent results at the ECOBEST Challenge 2021, organised by AUTOBEST last November, including:

  • a measured range of 221 km in the combined cycle (for a WLTP homologation of 230 km)
  • a remaining range of 31 km with 0% energy reserve on the dashboard
  • an energy efficiency of 8.25 km/kWh, the best measured among the 15 vehicles tested.

Born in 1968 then launched from 2004 all across Europe and Mediterranean countries, Dacia has always offered the best value for money cars, by constantly redefining the essentials. As a game-changer, Dacia proposes simple, multi-purpose, reliable cars in tune with its customers lifestyles.

Dacia models became a reference on the market: Logan, the brand-new car at the price of a used one; Sandero, the most sold car to European private customers; Duster, the most affordable SUV; Spring, the champion of the accessible electric mobility in Europe.

Dacia is a Renault Group brand, present in 44 countries.  Since 2004, Dacia has sold more than 7 million vehicles.
