Dacia Spring is available exclusively to E.Leclerc customers
By the end of spring, E.Leclerc rental agencies will receive the complete orders for Dacia Spring and Renault ZOE2. Thanks to a rate of 5 euros3 per day for Dacia Spring and 6 euros per day for Renault ZOE, the electric experience will be accelerated everywhere in France at the most affordable prices on the market. Customers of E.Leclerc rental agencies will be the first to enjoy the latest Dacia on the roads, which has been available for pre-order by private customers since 20 March for delivery in the autumn.
I am delighted to see this partnership take this new momentum in the E.Leclerc rental agencies, with Dacia Spring and Renault Zoe. Together with the E. Leclerc Centres, we are helping to make electric mobility accessible to as many people as possible, in price, practicality and proximity. I am convinced that the mobility of tomorrow will be built into an ecosystem with useful, concrete and practical partnerships like this one.
Luca de Meo, Groupe Renault CEO
I am very pleased to see our commitment to the electric car come to life today. It is in line with E Leclerc’s action for the environment and purchasing power. We are proud to do this with Groupe Renault and its Dacia brand. I believe this is an important moment for both of our companies and our presence today in Orly is a testament to that. Together, we make electric power accessible to all!
Michel-Edouard Leclerc, Chairman of the Strategic Committee of the E.Leclerc Centres
For E.Leclerc, the continuation of a comprehensive plan for electric
In 2010, E.Leclerc and Renault built a program for electric mobility based on offers and education: equipment of store car parks in charging facilities from 2011, purchase of Renault ZOE vehicles for employees from 2012, and the creation of "ambassador" clubs in region to promote clean mobility in 2013. As a signatory of the "100,000 charging stations" charter carried out by the Ministry of Transport, E.Leclerc also announced on 12th October its ambition to expand its current fleet of electric charging points to 5000 in 2 years, then 10,000 by 2025.
Dacia Spring and Renault ZOE, two 100% electric urban cars
With more than ten years of experience and nearly 350,000 electric vehicles sold, Groupe Renault is the leader in electric cars in Europe. Renault ZOE is the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe in 2020.
With a range of 395 km in WLTP cycle, ZOE is the versatile compact electric sedan for the everyday commute, as well as for longer journeys. Its charging capacity allows it to recover up to 80km of range in just 30 minutes on most charging networks on the roads.
Today, Groupe Renault is developing electric mobility with its Dacia brand, true to its philosophy of offering contemporary cars that meet the essentials. Dacia Spring 100% electric is a revolution: the cheapest electric city car on the market makes electric mobility even more accessible. Underneath its adventurer look, it is endowed with record roominess, reliable electric motorization, and reassuring range. This makes it a versatile and practical urban car. Lightweight and compact, Spring has a range of 230 km in WLTP cycle and 305 km in WLTP City (approval cycle comprising only the urban part of the approved cycle), guaranteeing a great versatility of use, urban but also suburban.
