Boulogne-Billancourt - This new partnership between Groupe Renault and E.Leclerc Location will fast-track efforts to bring the electric mobility experience to more people across France, at the most affordable pricing in the market. E.Leclerc has ordered 4,000 vehicles (3,000 Dacia Spring and 1,000 Renault ZOE), and hopes to encourage thousands of drivers to try this greener mobility option then adopt it.

Groupe Renault’s 10-plus years’ experience and almost 350,000 electric vehicles on roads today make it Europe’s electric vehicle leader. Its brand Dacia is merging electric mobility into its longstanding philosophy, which revolves around offering contemporary cars with just the essentials, by introducing the Spring Electric.

Dacia Spring Electric is a revolution: it is the most inexpensive electric supermini in the European market and is bringing electric mobility even closer within reach. It comes with an adventurous look, record-breaking space inside, a dependable electric engine and a reassuring range. All this adds up to a polyvalent and practical supermini.

This lightweight compact car’s range is 225 km (WLTP) or 295 km (WLTP City, meaning the urban cycle of the test procedure), making it extremely versatile in cities as well as suburbs.

I’m glad we can encourage our customers to go electric on such a large scale. This way, they can try out the cars no strings attached, then adopt this kind of mobility over time. This is exactly the point of all our efforts for the environment and purchasing power. Thanks to Groupe Renault and its brand Dacia, we will be able to provide a particularly affordable deal. This is a real step forwards, to build the market for the universal vehicle of the future! - said Chairman of Centres E.Leclerc’s Strategy Committee

In their respective fields, E.Leclerc and Dacia offer inexpensive, trustworthy, high-quality alternatives within everyone’s reach. By offering Dacia Spring cars, which are the most reasonably-priced electric vehicles in Europe, E.Leclerc is opening the door to electric mobility for all, in as many parts of France as possible. This is an exciting, purposeful partnership and it will contribute to another of the commitments we share: building a carbon-free society. Tomorrow’s mobility will be built in ecosystems, together, and it starts with partnerships like this. - mentioned Luca de Meo, CEO of Groupe Renault.
