Star of sales in France in 2022, Dacia will not sit idly by for this new year which is beginning, which must be that of electrification. Here is what the Romanian brand has in store for us!
Third brand in France in 2022 behind Peugeot and Renault, Dacia, with 130,855 registrations, has granted itself a market share of 15.46%. Better, the Sandero was the second best-selling car in France behind the Peugeot 208, with 64,293 units! The formerly low-cost brand of the Renault group chain performance. It is definitely on the rise with us and with our European neighbours. Since 2021 and the Renaulution plan, several new features have been released. Starting with the Electric Dacia Spring and the crossover/break Jogger. Without forgetting the grand SUV Bigster scheduled for 2024. Dacia has also moved upmarket, with the adoption of a new, original logo in 2022.
For this new year that is beginning, what will be the novelties? the best-seller Duster will already go through the renewal box, with a third generation which will be unveiled at the end of the year. This new version will be more athletic and square than the current one, with an even more adventurous look. It will be equipped with black plastic protections, sharp lights and a new full LED light signature. In addition, it will benefit from a technological upgrade, with a fully digital driver display and infotainment interface. He will maintain a 4X4 all-wheel drive and especially will see the appearance of a hybrid variant. No doubt in the form of the 1.6L of 140 horsepower already present at Renault. Gasoline and bicarburation GPL will always be on the program, but the diesel variant should disappear from the catalog.

Until its presentation (and its marketing in early 2024), the Dacia’s first hybrid model will arrive at the dealership: the jogger ! The Romanian firm’s crossover/break will carry a 1.2 kWh battery and a 140 horsepower HEV hybrid block (the same one that will probably equip the next Duster). With its unbeatable price, it will therefore become the cheapest hybrid model on the market. : from €24,600 ! It is announced with a combined consumption of 4.9 to 5.1 l/100 km. Against approximately 5.7 l/100 km for the 110 horsepower petrol version. It will be marketed in the first half of this year. Is that all for what’s new? No, since the Kwid mini electric city car see his offer motorclimb to 65 horsepower (against 45 horsepower currently) and its battery gain very slightly in capacity. An important year for Dacia thereforewhich continues to develop its hybrid and electric technologies!
