European electric crossover with a range of 300 km for 12,000 euros. Dacia Spring is getting ready to launch in Europe

In October last year, Renault showed the Dacia Spring electric car, which supposedly should have cost about 10,000 euros.

In fact, the Dacia Spring is an electric version of the restyled Indian Renault Kwid model that blew up the local market with its ultra-low price tag (under $ 4,000).

Be that as it may, now it became known how much the Dacia Spring will actually cost in Europe. In particular, the price for France is 17,000 euros for the basic version, but thanks to subsidies, buyers will eventually get the car for only 12,400 euros. It’s a bit more expensive than expected, but it’s still a very, very interesting proposal. It is also worth noting that subsidies are different in different countries, so prices may differ in one direction or another. Pre-orders will begin to be accepted as early as March 20, but the first deliveries are expected only in the fall.

It also became known what exactly the buyers of the new car will receive. The Dacia Spring will be available in two trim levels: Confort and Confort Plus. The former offers air conditioning, a basic audio system without a large screen, and LED daytime running lights. The second modification already includes a seven-inch display of the multimedia system, another steering wheel, a rear-view camera and a number of other options. Apparently, there are no differences in the battery and the engine.

At the same time, with a modest battery with a capacity of 26.8 kWh, the manufacturer promises a cruising range of 230 km (WLTP) or 305 km (WLTP City).

Separately, it is worth noting two configurations Business and Cargo. The first is focused on the commercial segment and car sharing, and the second is distinguished by the absence of rear seats, which gives 1,100 liters of luggage space.

Jidu robots will be a generation ahead of Tesla

Baidu’s electric vehicle maker Jidu Auto said it will be one generation ahead of Tesla in terms of autonomous driving technology.

“Our understanding of smart vehicles is that being electric is the semi-final and being smart is the final,” Baidu chief executive Robin Li said yesterday.

Jidu plans to deliver 800,000 of its smart cars (called “robots”) by 2028, as well as launch its second model into mass production in 2024. In June, Jidu unveiled its first Robo-01 concept car, which has no door handles and can be fully controlled by voice control, with the model planned for mass production in 2023.

In addition to equipping the car with Baidu-based autonomous driving software technology, the Jidu “robots” will have two laser rangefinders (lidars) and 12 cameras. At the same time, Tesla does not use lidars.

Tech companies around the world are competing to develop smart cars following Tesla’s success in commercializing electric vehicles. We should see Xiaomi smart car next year.

The Tesla Model Y electric crossover is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world, but it could soon be the best-selling passenger car in all categories.

As early as 2023, it could overtake the Toyota Corolla and become the first electric vehicle in history to top the list of the world’s best-selling passenger cars.

This is reported by Electrek with reference to the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, who announced at the annual meeting of Tesla shareholders that the Tesla Model Y is on its way to becoming the best-selling car in the world. He noted that the electric crossover will become the best-selling car in the world by revenue this year. The company also expects it to become the best-selling car next year once Tesla ramps up production at Gigafactory Texas and Gigafactory Berlin.
