Dacia is unveiling its latest concept car: Manifesto is the perfect embodiment of the brand’s values. It is an essential vehicle with a robust and eco-smart design that will have it swiftly gaining ground on all fronts.
With this concept car, we are delving further into the great outdoors, creating an easy and accessible way to enjoy the fresh air, whether for business or pleasure.
Manifesto is a super compact and fully open SUV, so passengers can feel at one with nature. This light-weight, silent companion prioritises agility above speed. With this type of vehicle, you can easily deliver supplies to mountain retreats or check on an outdoor facility.
Manifesto will not be available for sale but it showcases all our innovations, including those already featured in some of our models and soon to be expanded to the entire range; those about to be launched; and those that explore new ideas to be uncovered in the years to come.
Through Manifesto, Dacia reaffirms its vision of an essential, cool, robust, affordable and eco-friendly vehicle.
ESSENTIAL & COOL
Clever and accessible solutions that fill your needs. So cool!
ROBUST & OUTDOOR
A robust, all-terrain design to take you anywhere you want to go.
Because at Dacia, eco-friendly and efficient go hand in hand.
ESSENTIAL & COOL
Our cars meet your needs, without all the bells and whistles. We design economical, flexible and versatile solutions that focus on what matters most: meeting your needs. Dacia means clever, affordable and cool.
OUR INNOVATIONS OF TODAY AND TOMORROW
YouClip - To clip on your essentials
What if you had a more clever multi-use attachment system that let you bring all your favourite tools with you?
YouClip lets you easily attach any accessory to various spots in your vehicle. This innovation will be available on our next generation Duster and later on our other models.
Bring your own device - Take your favourite apps along for the ride
Why add multiple screens when we all carry around a smartphone that we are already accustomed to using?
With “Bring Your Own Device”, we eliminate the need for complicated and costly technology. Say goodbye to the built-in screen. Simply connect your own smartphone to easily access your digital world, apps and settings. This is the next step forward from what our cars currently offer with Media Control.
Imagine you are in the middle of nowhere, exploring the great outdoors, and you need a battery to charge your devices.
Now you can, with our removable battery charger!
Go even further
What if we take being economical to the extreme?
No more doors, no more windows, no more windscreen. No more buffer between you and nature. Its extreme bare-bones design offers one removable light to illuminate the road head or to take with you off the beaten track. These new options we are exploring will not be featured on our models, but they do express our philosophy.
ROBUST & OUTDOOR
Do you love the great outdoors? You have come to the right place. Our cars have a reputation for being practical, robust and reliable regardless of the road conditions. Do you work outdoors? Or perhaps you are simply looking to reconnect with nature. Dacia‘s new concept car is for you.
Manifesto meets all the outdoor criteria, with its 4-wheel drive, high ground clearance, large wheels and a body that stands up to even the toughest terrain.
Inside and out. We are currently working to make our interiors—including floor mats and seat covers—more durable and easier to clean. These improvements will be featured in our cars as early as next year.
We want to come along on all your adventures, so we introduced these innovative and practical features:
Clever seat designs
The seat covers can be removed and transform into a sleeping bag in one slick move.
A multi-use roof
The multi-use roof is extremely versatile. It folds out and includes adjustable roof bars, to carry all kinds of luggage, a progression of the multi-use roof bars already featured on Sandero Stepway or Jogger.
Dacia concept car - workbench
Loading capacity is also important to you. In addition to being easier to load, the concept car has been fitted with a winch to help you handle your gear and hold it in place. We have also designed an option to transform the rear of the concept car into a table or workbench.
At Dacia, our mission is to develop more eco-friendly models through economical and responsible design. To explore the world without leaving a trace, Manifesto has a remarkably small carbon footprint. The economical and lightweight concept car also introduces ingenious innovations such as Starkle® and the airless tyre.
The ultra-compact concept car embraces the minimalist design, helping to reduce its energy consumption, in line with the progress made on our current range. By including only the essential technologies and just-the-right-sized powertrains, we have managed to keep our cars lightweight.
Our vehicles are already made with recycled plastic. With Starkle®, we are increasing the percentage of recycled plastic both in hidden and visible parts of the car, including on the exterior. Starkle® is a composite material that can incorporate 20% recycled plastic without sacrificing durability, safety or aesthetics. This innovation will be launched on the market with the new generation Duster.
With Manifesto, we are exploring airless tyres suitable for all road surfaces and conditions, making flats a thing of the past.
