THE JOGGER SUCCESS STORY
Dacia began selling its reinvented seven-seater family car, the Dacia Jogger, less than a year ago. The model has already proven a great success, with over 83,000 orders and more than 51,000 registrations made since its launch in March 2022. In under a year, the Jogger has become the second most sold car to private customers in the C-segment, excluding SUVs in Europe 21 countries*.
Two thirds of Jogger customers have opted for Dacia’s LPG expertise by choosing the ECO-G 100 engine.
What’s more, two thirds of customers chose the highest trim level for their vehicle.
Fifty-five percent of customers chose the seven-seat version.
And the success story is set to continue – the Jogger will soon feature a HYBRID 140 engine, which incorporates automatic transmission and a clutchless gear box, in order to win over new customers.
THE DACIA JOGGER HYBRID 140 ON ITS WAY TO DEALERSHIPS
The Jogger HYBRID 140 is set to arrive in dealerships from March 2023, with orders taken from January 2023.
Made at the Mioveni plant in Romania using Renault Group expertise, the Jogger is the first Dacia model to feature hybrid technology and is therefore contributing to electrifying the brand’s range.
Available from €24,600 in France for the Expression version (5 seats), the Jogger is the most accessible hybrid family car (with 5/7 seat configurations) on the market.
A Schiste grey version will go on sale for the launch in addition to the six other body colours already available.
The Jogger HYBRID 140 will appeal to families and other customers seeking a spacious multi-purpose car suited both to city life and outdoor activities. The Jogger brings a modern touch with technology that boosts driving pleasure and provides excellent on-board comfort for a reasonable price.
The Jogger HYBRID 140 is also made for customers seeking the advantages of driving an electric vehicle – silence, a smooth vibration-free ride, a systematically full-electric start, and instant torque for powerful acceleration.
THE JOGGER, THE ESSENTIAL MULTI-PURPOSE FAMILY VEHICLE
Dacia has made a multi-purpose family vehicle offering up to seven seats universally accessible. The Jogger combines the length of an estate car with the on-board comfort of a leisure activity vehicle, as well as the characteristics of a SUV.
Robust and with good roadholding, the Jogger offers excellent comfort for all passengers, even adults sitting in the third row.
This new hybrid version features all the advantages of the existing Jogger, without any trade-offs – with no loss of loading space and the same generously proportioned interior. Proof of the Dacia Jogger’s multi‑purpose nature comes in the fact that the integration of a hybrid engine traction battery was planned right from the start. The battery is installed beneath the floor of the car in the spare wheel compartment, which is also where the LPG tank for the ECO-G 100 engine can be found
The Jogger HYBRID 140 features an automatic gearbox with a “B mode”, which increases regenerative braking while boosting engine braking. Use of this mode enables more energy recovery while enhancing driving comfort in urban areas. The driver can therefore reduce use of the brake pedal, making the journey uniquely comfortable both for them and all their passengers.
The Jogger HYBRID 140 features its own specific 7” instrument panel, which shows several different focuses in line with the driver’s preferences plus essential information such as the level of traction battery charge, remaining range and energy flow, to name just a few. And, for greater comfort, the Jogger HYBRID 140 includes an electronic parking brake as standard as well as a high console with closed storage and an armrest.
HYBRID 140, PROVEN AND EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY
The Jogger marks the arrival of hybrid engines at Dacia and offers combined power of 140 hp, as well as the best levels of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in the Jogger range, from 108g/km. It harnesses technology that has proven its effectiveness and become widely recognised at Renault Group, with a four-cylinder 1.6 l petrol engine providing 90 hp, two electric engines (a 50 hp engine and a high-voltage starter generator), and an automatic electric gearbox with four gears coupled to the combustion engine and two gears coupled to the electric motor. The lack of clutch in the car enabled Dacia to integrate this combined technology.
The regenerative braking, combined with the 1.2 kWh (230V) battery’s high levels of energy recovery and the efficiency of the automatic transmission, enable:
- all-electric propulsion for 80% of urban journeys;
- up to 40% greater fuel economy compared with an internal combustion engine in the urban cycle driven in the same way.
The Jogger’s all-electric traction when starting and automatic transmission make the vehicle comfortable and easy to drive, enhancing driving pleasure and energy performance alike. The battery charges when the driver brakes or slows down, creating a truly limitless hybrid experience. The Jogger HYBRID 140 has range of over 900 km (in WLTP combined cycle). The Jogger HYBRID 140 battery is guaranteed for the first eight years or 160,000 km, whichever comes sooner.
“Less than a year after the launch of the Jogger, we are taking a new step by presenting another version of the model with a HYBRID 140 engine. It’s a clutchless hybrid, offering an all-electric start and reducing fuel consumption. The Jogger HYBRID 140 represents Dacia’s position perfectly – it is the most accessible hybrid family vehicle on the market and always offers a generous interior space as well as all the essential features. By incorporating this engine, Dacia has taken the leap with hybrid technology.”
