Dacia Manifesto concept is a durable and ecological vehicle

the romanian automaker Daciaa member of the Renault group, has just presented a vehicle concept called MANIFESTOa robust and ecologically efficient vehicle.

This concept vehicle does not mean that Dacia will launch a similar vehicle, on the contrary, with the Manifesto they want to show that this is a «laboratory of ideas that show a vehicle connected with nature, respectful with the environment and with multiple innovations, some of which can be seen in the future vehicles of the Dacia range«.

The Manifesto makes no attempt to separate passengers from the environment, so it has no windows, doors, and windshields.

Dacia points out that passengers are immersed in nature and in turn can remain connected to the services of their smartphone, which can be fully integrated into the dashboard and with the on-board computer. A system proposed in various vehicles of the brand, which will continue to evolve over time.

Another innovation that Dacia promises will be seen in future models is the YouClip, a fastening system for different modular and useful accessories.

We must also name an innovative idea with the unique headlight, which is removable to be used as a flashlight.

It is no secret that Dacia vehicles have one characteristic in common, which is none other than robustness and reliability. In this the Dacia Duster, Jogger and Sendero Stepway are distinguished, qualities that are impregnated in the Dacia Manifesto concept.

Among its main characteristics of robustness and reliability we have the following:

  • The MANIFESTO concept respects the fundamentals of the outdoors with a 4-wheel drive, a very generous ground clearance associated with large tires, as well as a body prepared to face the most difficult terrain.
  • The MANIFESTO concept is “waterproof” and its interior can be washed with a simple jet of water.
  • The seat covers are removable and can be transformed into a sleeping bag in the blink of an eye.
  • the modular roof can transport all types of cargo thanks to some Drop-down fixing bars in multiple configurations. It should be remembered that Dacia has already stood out in this area with the innovative Sandero Stepway or Jogger modular roof bars, which Duster will soon join.
  • A specific and removable battery supplies electricity through a domestic outlet, thus transforming the Concept MANIFESTO into a source of energy to accompany outdoor activities.

In terms of ecology, this is an EcoSmart concept, which minimizes the environmental footprint. The energy consumption of this vehicle is reduced thanks to its lightness and this is something that Dacia has been working on for a long time, applying this idea to the Jogger to give an example. The Dacia Jogger is a vehicle that can carry 7 passengers, but is 300KG lighter than the competition’s vehicles.

We do not have the percentage, but a large part of the plastic used in the bodywork of the Dacia Manifesto is recycled material that they call Starkle. This material is produced from reused polypropylene.

Dacia also uses cork which is seen inside the vehicle in places like the dashboard, replacing chrome and on top of the steering wheel.

Finally we must emphasize its tires, which as Dacia says, are not tires. These are other elements that point to savings and ecology. They are puncture proof and can last for the life of the vehicle.

In statements made by executives we have the words indicated by the director of Dacia Design, David Durand, who said: «At Dacia we like the concrete. As we were developing and exploring new ideas, we felt the need to go beyond 3D simulations and see them in reality. In addition, before being a design object, the MANIFESTO Concept embodies our vision and brings together multiple innovations, some of them extreme in their execution but always accessible to the customer, and some of them will serve us in future Dacia vehicles.«.

As for Dacia’s Product Performance Director, Lionel Jaillet, he pointed out that “We want to build a product range that reinforces our brand promise by focusing on the essentials and adapting our vehicles to outdoor uses. Beyond our models, we are also working on innovations that allow us to better meet the needs and uses of our customers. The MANIFESTO Concept plays the role of a laboratory to explore, test and design new ideas. The version you can see today will continue to evolve as we conduct further exploration. So we are waiting for you in our next models, more ingenious, more Outdoor and more Dacia than ever.«.
