Automaker Dacia adds a new, advanced version of the electric car’s first spring. Named Extreme, it is the best-equipped and most powerful version of this model.
It replaces the previous Expression item, which was thus far the superior of the two available. Compared to the base model, it also offers reverse sensors and a camera, a spare wheel, or the option to drive extra for 30 kW direct current charging.
So we can expect these items on the Extreme as well, with painted brass body details, special badging, brass interior details and front rubber floor mats with a topographic pattern.
The Extreme version will also offer a new, more powerful powertrain. While spring customers have so far had to settle for 45 horsepower, the electric 65 variant will offer the full 65 horsepower. The electric motor received a new gearbox that improves the vehicle’s acceleration, but the standard range per charge for the 27 kWh battery has decreased from 230 to 220 km according to the WLTP measurement methodology.
Orders for the new version open in the Czech Republic on January 16, and deliveries of the first units are expected in the summer.
