DACIA

Created in 1966 and bought by Renault in 1999, Dacia is the most important auto maker in Romania. Its values are: simplicity, robustness and unbeatable value for money. A large part of its success comes from the emblematic vehicle: Logan. Dacia is also the group's vector for development in Europe and Euromed regions.

Dacia in figures (2011 data) 

  • 1,877 sales outlets (primary network)
  • The brand is available in 36 countries (Europe, North Africa and Turkey)
  • 13,684 employees
  • 343,233 vehicles sold

  • 1,000,000 Logan (all versions included) produced between 2004 and October 2010... and counting!

Two major production sites: Pitesti and Tangier 

Certified ISO 14001 since 2005, the Pitesti plant is the historic site of the Dacia brand. It features a body shop and 2 assembly lines dedicated to Logan (all versions), Sandero and Duster models. Over 300,000 units are manufactured each year (Vs. 200,000 in 2004). The powertrain unit makes engines and gearboxes for Dacia and Renault vehicles.

 

Since the privatisation of the brand in 1999, €489 million have been invested by Renault in order to brought up Pitesti to Group's standards.

 

Since 2012, Dacia can rely on the Renault-Alliance plant based in Tangier (Morocco) for the manufacturing of its Lodgy MPV. A small van which will also be available in passenger car form are also expected. In the first instance, the plant will assemble 200,000 vehicle per year.

 

Las but not least, the SOMACA plant (Casablanca, Morocco) assembles Logan (since 2005) and Sandero under the Dacia brand.
