An electric car for 40 euros - no problem, here you go! The Dacia Spring electric car is over the counter for less than 40 euros, and private individuals can dust it off for around 100 euros. However, there are a few tradeoffs that you have to make. You will also find out what to look out for when concluding a leasing contract.
With a battery capacity of 27.8 kWh, the Dacia Spring electric car achieves a standard range of 230 kilometers. If you want to recharge, you can do this with 6.6 kilowatts of alternating current or a maximum of 30 kilowatts at the fast charging station.
As with some models, the plug is located in the central area of the supposed radiator grille, and so it can be conveniently brought up to most charging stations. After all, the Dacia Spring electric car should charge from 0 to 80 percent with the high voltage available for 600 euros in less than an hour.
The Dacia Spring costs just 39.86 euros gross or 33 euros net with a term of 30 months and an annual mileage of 10,000 kilometers. Private individuals can lease the Dacia Spring for over five years for EUR 106 gross with an annual mileage of 5,000 kilometers. If you can't get by with the kilometers, the leasing deal with a 10,000-kilometer package costs 113 euros gross per month. As with almost every leasing offer for an e-car or hybrid, this leasing deal also requires a down payment of 6,000 euros, corresponding to the state subsidy.
The price of 33. euros net per month is an excellent offer for the Dacia Spring electric car. Anyone looking for a city car with SUV charm and who can do without luxurious equipment will have a lot of fun with the Dacia Spring. You can also have the Dacia Spring delivered to your front door for an additional charge of 189 euros.
However, private individuals have to dig much deeper into their pockets.
Duration: Ideally, it is 24 months - because then the factory warranty covers the entire time. If you still want to lease for a longer period (which can also have advantages, such as not buying new winter tires every two years), we advise you to extend the guarantee. It costs extra, but you can drive carefree during the entire leasing period.
Leasing factor: The rule here is: the lower, the better. The leasing factor is calculated from the leasing term, the leasing rate, the car's purchase price or vehicle list price, and the one-off payment. This article explains how you can calculate the leasing factor yourself.
Additional costs: Often an annoying evil is the so-called transfer costs, which add up to around 800 to 900 euros. However, this does not mean that the car is put in front of your door, but that the car only gets to the dealer who set up this leasing offer. Ideally, the dealer is not too far away from you, as you have to pick up the car there and bring it back at the end of the leasing period. Beware of additional offers such as insurance or service: it is often not worth taking them with you because you are already in a very high no-claims category or because it is an e-car with very low service costs.
Inclusive kilometers: In principle, the favorable leasing rates are based on 10,000 kilometers of mileage per year. Do not worry; you do not have to adhere to it every year; it is only essential that you do not exceed these kilometers cumulatively at the end of the term. By the way: Sometimes (but not always!) There is the goodwill of around 2,500 kilometers. If you drive more than the agreed kilometers, you pay more. If you drive less, you get something back per kilometer. So you should know pretty much how many kilometers you go each year. Do the math, compare the leasing rate with a higher inclusive kilometer service and the additional kilometer prices (it shouldn't be more than 7 cents per km!).
Down payment: Even in private leasing, it is now expected that you do not have to pay anything for your new leasing car (apart from the transfer - see above). Exceptions here are the offers for e-cars or plug-in hybrids. However, you only advance the down payment of, for example, 6,000 euros because you will receive this money back from the state as part of the electric car subsidy.
