The initial prices of the most affordable electric car in Europe finally start to appear and the first 100 units in Hungary were already pre-ordered with a price of 6.490.000 HUF (17.812 euros).
This price is before any government subsidy and includes a VAT of 27 %. After subsidies the price drops to a more reasonable 3.990.000 HUF (10.951 euros).
Customers that pre-order this electric car in Hungary have to pay 100.000 HUF (274 euros).
Unfortunately we don’t know if the first units include DC-fast charging capability via CCS, which allows to charge this electric car from 0 to 80 % in 50 minutes, but usually limited series are the most expensive and better equipped versions.

Anyway, the Dacia Spring Electric will be made in China and exported to Europe, but we still don’t know what is the planned production capacity. However, considering that the Renault ZOE seems to be the electric car with the lowest waiting time in Europe, I expect a decent waiting time for Dacia’s first electric car.
