“The Sandero is going to have two generations in advance of we strike 2035, which is the legal cease-off – if it takes place – for ICE in standard,” he said, suggesting that the up coming-generation Sandero (or equal B-segment hatchback) could get there in 2028 or 2029 with an ICE powertrain, to be marketed along with an ICE-powered up coming-era Dacia Duster SUV (launching in 2024) and the 2025 Bigster SUV, which will very last until 2032 and 2033 respectively.
