The small electric crossover Dacia Spring became a bestseller in Italy at the end of September this year in its segment. It was purchased by 1,876 people. The closest pursuer Fiat 500 Elettrica found 1,289 new owners, while the Tesla Model 3 just fell short of 1,000 – 999 cars sold.
The popularity of electric cars in Italy is growing – in September they accounted for 8% of all sales, while hybrid cars captured 36.5% of the total market. The new Dacia Spring can be purchased for € 19,900.
And due to subsidies for the purchase of electric cars, the price is reduced to 15,740 euros. At the same time, it should be noted that the general decline in the market due to the lack of electronics played a role in such dynamics.
Most likely, Dacia is much better at this than its competitors.
If we talk about the period from the beginning of January to the end of September, the Italians bought 2,497 new Dacia Spring – this is the seventh result. The local Fiat 500 is in the lead with 7 859 sold cars. The second line belongs to Smart Fortwo, which sold 4,557 copies and complements the TOP-3 Tesla Model 3 (4,432 units).
