2021 Dacia Spring EV: Europe’s cheapest electric car

The 2021 Dacia Spring EV has launched in Europe as the continent's cheapest electric car, priced from approximately €12,000 (AU$18,500) plus on-road costs in some markets. However, buyers better not be in a hurry. The Dacia Spring – with Dacia is Renault's Romanian-based budget brand – is slower than a 50-year-old Volkswagen Beetle, according to 0-100km/h times published by the car maker.
