How much does it cost to maintain a Dacia Spring?

Known as the electric accessible to all, Dacia Spring is a small battery crossover marketed at the price of a normal car. Presented in 2020, Spring has achieved great successes in terms of sales also thanks to the numerous purchase incentives made available by the government and individual regions; for a limited period, in fact, it was possible to buy it for around 10 thousand euros.

What is the Dacia Spring hiding under the hood? On board there is a small 27.4 kWh battery that delivers about 45 endothermic horsepower that could turn up your nose but still allow a good mileage, as highlighted in our previous test. The autonomy is about 230 km in the WLTP cycle, about 200 km with regular use, while recharging takes place in AC mode (with 7.4 kW wallbox) and DC (30 kW, optional); recharging times therefore range from 5 hours to 1.30 hours.

Two versions are available, Comfort and Comfort Plus, which differ both in the charging system and in the infotainment, which is decidedly more advanced on the Plus version which makes it compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Stamp duty

As an electric car, Dacia Spring "does not pay" any stamp duty. Out of 18 regions (of the 20), electric cars do not pay road tax for the first 5 years. From the sixth year onwards, the tax is reduced by 75% and the disbursement is therefore a quarter of the full rate. But be careful, if you are resident in Lombardy or Piedmont, the owners of electric vehicles are exempted from paying the vehicle tax forever. Free or not, the Dacia Spring tax is really cheap.



How much does a recharge cost for Dacia Spring? How much do you spend on a full tank? The answer is more complicated than a classic endothermic as it is also necessary to consider the type of recharge. Relying on the in-depth analysis dedicated to charging rates, a full tank from BeCharge can cost up to 15 euros, while using the home network (calculating an average) the price could settle at just under 10 euros.

On average, the consumption of the Dacia Spring is 12.6 kWh / 100 km, i.e. 1.4 liters / 100 km (considering 9 kWh per 1 liter of petrol). To cover 10 thousand km, 1260 kWh are therefore required, which translates into approximately a cost of 600 euros at the column and 550 euros with the home network. Of course, the charging rates can change from contract to contract and from column to column, our calculation is purely indicative.


The matter here is increasingly complicated, due to the numerous accessory activations available, to the municipality to which it belongs and to the age of the driver. Judging from what is reported on the net, making an average of the results collected, a basic RCA coverage for a Dacia Spring is about 550 euros. Of course, adding additional services such as Kasko or mini-Kasko it is not difficult to exceed this figure.


Dacia Spring is not free from maintenance but certainly the management cost is lower than an endothermic one. of the same category. Every year or 30 thousand km he has to go to the workshop to replace the cabin filter; in addition, every 4 years it is necessary to check or replace the 12V battery, the brake fluid and the coolant. For the first coupons the figure is around 50 euros, a value that tends to triple for the more demanding ones.


Don't forget the cost of the revision, fixed and controlled for everyone. . Electric cars also have to pay for the inspection, the first time after 4 years from registration and then every 2 years. To be carried out on a regular basis as indicated on your registration certificate, the cost of the revision is € 66.88.
