Dacia Eco2

Dacia’s Eco2 signature proves our capacity to build both economical and more ecological vehicles.

A Dacia Eco2 vehicle conforms to the three criteria :

- CO2 emissions of less than 120 g/km
- Manufactured in plants certified to ISO 14001 standards
- 95% of its materials (by weight) will be reusable at the end of the vehicle’s lifecycle. In addition, at least 7% of vehicle plastics on new Eco2 vehicles are made from recycled plastics.

Eco-driving can reduce fuel consumption by up to 20%

  • Pull away as soon as the engine has fired up.

Tip 6. Look after your car

  • If you have to use the air conditioning, make sure the difference between the temperatures inside your vehicle and outside is not too great.
  • Do not leave any unnecessary loads in your vehicle.
  • Remove roof bars and roof boxes when not in use.
