Dacia has highest growth pace in France’s automotive market in 2013


French Automotive Group Renault, the owner of Romanian carmaker Dacia, on Thursday announced it has retained and strengthened its leading position in the French automotive market, as six of Renault Group-made vehicles rank among the top-10 best selling passenger cars – Clio (No. 1), Scenic, Megane, Dacia Sandero, Captur and Twingo, informs a Renault release.
Furthermore, Dacia posted the highest growth recorded by any brand in the French market in 2013, thanks to 11 per cent surge in sales. Dacia is the 5th-biggest brand in France’s market at present, with 5 per cent market share thanks to the successful renewal of the car range by the new Sandero, Logan MCV, the new Duster and Dokker. As many as 93,803 Dacia passenger- and utility vehicles were sold in the French market in 2013, with 10,332 of them in December alone.
‘We are very satisfied with our sales in 2013, that allow Renault Group to lessen the impact of the French automotive market drop. This performance, in line with our expectations was the result of the success of our new models and of the rise recorded by Dacia brand,’ Renault Vice President Bernard Cambier said.
