Thanks to the Sleep pack, Dacia’s family station wagon can now be transformed into a mini-van, with two adults sleeping in the back.
Dacia has just shaken up the family hybrid car market with the launch of the Jogger Hybrid 140, a large adventurer station wagon available in 5 or 7 seats, from €24,600. And now the model becomes the first low-cost van with a hybrid engine!
The Romanian manufacturer has just put on sale a transformation kit for the Jogger. It’s called the Sleep pack, it’s the first accessory in the InNature range, which will help strengthen the brand’s outdoor image. It’s a pack that includes three essential functions: a double bed that can unfold on its own in less than two minutes, a tablet and a storage space.
For this to work, the third row of seats must be removed in seven-seat models. The pack takes the form of a wooden box which occupies the space of the trunk, under the luggage cover. Good point, even with it, you can travel to 5 and there are 220 liters of cargo left. The box access flap turns into a shelf, for eating in the back of the vehicle.
To sleep, simply fold down the seat, mount the second part of the mattress support above it. Once unfolded, we have a bed 190 cm long and up to 130 cm wide at the rear doors thanks to sliding shoulders. There are 60 cm left in headroom to lie down.
The Sleep pack can be ordered at the same time as the vehicle, at a price of €1490. It is also offered separately at 1790 €. As additional accessories, Dacia offers blinds to hide the windows and an outer tent which attaches to the vehicle once the tailgate is open.
As a reminder, the hybrid variant uses the engine of the Clio, with a 1.6 petrol associated with two electric blocks. The maximum cumulative power is 140 hp. There is a small 1.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. The brand promises a drop in consumption in urban areas of up to 40%.
