Fully electric Megane announced with 60 kWh battery and 130 kW motor:


Also, potentially the cheapest EV on the market, the Dacia Spring, likely to be around €10,000.

electrek guess 10000 - 15000 euros for the Spring.

It's the pre-production car. The real one won't have huge wheels.

Nice video of the Megane here:

If they make it look like that I can see that they will have a large order backlog, I fear that what they release will differ vastly from those images.

The 40 / 62 leaf was supposedly going to look something like this after all:

136165


Im not quite sure why manufacturers tease with stunning looking styling then massively water it down, maybe it’s just cost and practicality.

The vat is 27%
Of you back calculate thats 11 to 12k OTR
Add 10k miles off fuel, tax and servicing savings could cover your lease payments.

Especially if you gave an old banger that costs 300+ quid a year to keep on the road.

This is technically free car land.

Wow just looked and the worst dacia has a 26% deprication from new.
Applying that to this model and you are looking at lease off £86 plus costs.
Demand is going to be through the roof!

Even in my 8 year old ampera I'd be better off by about £10 a month. (assuming post covid milage and fuel prices)

Well, if the Meg looks like that and 130kW charging becomes a thing, sign me up for a lease in three years' time.

Not sure why they're bothered putting glass in that letterbox rear screen though.

Yes, it will be good to see another “from the ground up” EV platform in that segment. I will be interested to see more of it...

I just hope it’s less buggy from the start than VAG’s MEB was (that seems to be looking better now, but it has taken time and caused a number of people a lot of stress). Maybe the use of Google software for the user facing elements will help.

I’d presume 130kW is a ceiling, and ought to translate into keeping better to max delivery on say a 100kW charger (before the charging profile drops off). Just my guess.

You wouldn’t want to miss out on seeing your rear view mirror filled with the letters “ERF” or “MAN”, would you?
