A few months ago, the Dacia Jogger was launched in Israel - a 7-seater passenger transporter offered at the price of an average supermini car.
Despite the attractive pricing typical of Dacia models, the Jogger faced a difficult challenge in the form of the lack of an automatic transmission.
Dacia is now unveiling in the world a jogger with an automatic transmission, paired with a hybrid drive unit.
A combination at the right price can make Jogger a sales star in the sought-after market segment of 7-seater vehicles.

This is Dacia's first hybrid model, and the hybrid drive unit is familiar from Renault models such as the Capture Hybrid.
It is a combination of a 1.6-liter atmospheric engine that delivers 90 hp and an electric engine that delivers 50 hp (combined power of 140 hp), with another electric motor serving as a starter unit and comparing speeds between the gasoline engine's gearbox (4 transmission ratios) and the engine The main electric (2 gear ratios).
The 1.2 kW battery charged from the engine's braking energy, and located under the rear seats, according to Dacia, enables electric driving in 80% urban conditions and a 40% reduction in average fuel consumption in combined driving.
Dacia did not publish performance data except for a maximum driving range of 900 km, which means that with a standard fuel tank it is an estimated average consumption of about 20 km per liter.
Beyond that, the hybrid version has a new steering wheel behind which is a different dashboard with a 7-inch data screen that provides information on the flow of energy, the level of charge in the battery and the driving range.
The hybrid Dacia Jogger is expected to arrive in Israel during 2023.
