The Sandero 1.4 LPG joins two other version of the range on the French market: Sandero dCi 70, dCi 85 and the 1.2 16V. All of them, including the newest addition to the range, feature the Dacia Eco signature.
The use of LPG on the 1.4 version helps reduce C02 emissions by up to 20 percent, compared to the exclusive use of petrol. As a result, the Sandero has a CO2 emissions average of 135g/km (making it able to qualify for the 2,000 euro eco bonus).
Sandero's engine has a maximum power output of 75 horsepower (as much as a 1932 Ford T, only some 80 years later) and a peak torque of 112 Nm. By the combined use of both petrol and gas, the Sandero 1.4 LPG can travel as far as 1,200 km on full tanks of petrol and gas.
The decision to bring yet another version on the Sandero on the French market comes as a result of government intervention to boost new car sales. As is the case in many European countries, the Dacia range sells well, sometimes even above the expected volume, Germany being the best example.
