Description of the car

The Spring is best for a drive in and around town, then on county roads, with the worst range on the highway and/or in sub-zero temperatures. The Spring isn't very good on the highway, but will offer a reasonably brisk ride in other areas.

The Spring can carry up to 4 people. It offers a range of 150 - 200 km depending on the style and type of driving. Top speed is 125 km/h.

Springs should be seen as small cheap cars, similar to Škoda Citigos for example. However, they will offer all-electric operation and an associated continuously variable automatic transmission.

For a better driving experience, we would like to point out that Dacia Spring cars are primarily charged with locally generated renewable electricity from the Auto Kubíček photovoltaic system.

Disconnecting the car from the charging station

You will always find all Autonapůl electric cars in a fixed parking space, connected to a charging station, wallbox or charging pole. This means that after starting the reservation, it is first necessary to release the charging cable, store it in the trunk and start your journey. To release the cable from the car's charging port, it is necessary to press the unlock button on the car key. The car then releases the charging cable lock and you can disconnect it from the vehicle. All you have to do is hide the cable in the trunk, snap the charging port into the front of the car and off you go.

Starting and driving

Another surprise may be waiting for you after getting behind the wheel. Like any electric car, the Dacia Spring Autonapůl has automatic transmission. In addition, Dacia Spring can surprise you with a rotary selector for the direction of drive. You can only select forward - D, reverse - R and N mode - neutral for parking. Attention! After engaging the N gear, you need to either pull the parking brake or have your foot on the brake pedal, neutral gear has no braking or locking and the car can move spontaneously without braking. 

The vehicle can only be started with the rotary selector in position N and with the foot on the brake pedal. By turning the key, the car starts and the OK light on the dashboard illuminates in green. If this light does not illuminate, the car is not started and will not drive, or it may even back down on a hill! Starting has positions like a classic combustion car - first the ignition and then turning the key to start the car. Remember that the green OK light on the dash in the area of ​​the energy consumption indicator must be ON to verify that the car is actually started

Spring's practical range on a full battery is 150-200 km, mostly on a smooth ride in the city, then on district roads, the smallest range is on the highway, where there is no way to use regenerative braking during fast driving and consumption is growing rapidly. The main advice is: To increase the range, reduce the speed to 80 km/h. Consumption is also affected by the weather, especially temperatures around the freezing point also reduce the range.
