We reported back in June this year that Dacia might be bringing its all electric Spring hatchback to the UK, with a decision to be made soon. The budget EV is on sale in the majority of Europe and has already been proved popular, with 40,000 orders been taken in eight months.
However, during this time Dacia has still been in the ‘making a decision’ phase, but this week Denis Le Vot, CEO at Dacia spoke to Autocar and said that the possibility of the Spring going on sale in the UK:
“Is looking very positive, but there is no final decision. For the UK we will make a final decision late this year or by early January at the very latest.”
