Dacia worldwide sales up 19.3 pc in 2013

Dacia worldwide sales went up by 19.3 per cent in 2013, compared to the previous year, reaching almost 430,000 units, whereas the market share of the carmaker in Romania was 31 per cent, reveal the trade results of Dacia-Renault Group unveiled yesterday by commercial manager of Renault Group in Romania Thomas Dubruel at a press conference. In Romania, the car maker increased its sales by 12.4 per cent, up to 24,890 units, and the best selling model remained the Logan, with 11,366 units followed by Sandero (4,706 units), Duster (4,644 units) and Dokker (3,304 units). Romania is also the state where Dacia has the largest market share in the world for new cars, namely 31.6 per cent. Out of the total number of Romanian clients who opted out for Dacia, 77.1 per cent were companies. According to official data, Dacia sold last year 429,540 vehicles, as the market where they operate saw a 1.7 per cent drop in Europe and of 3 per cent in the Eurasian area. Dacia figures derive from selling more models, as Sandero has become the best selling model of the carmaker, with 150,591 units. On the other hand, Rabla government scrapping scheme should not be modified each year and we believe the 2014 edition will be the last, said Dubruel on Tuesday. He added that the program should be revised so that the purchase of new cars should be stimulated. According to the Environment Fund Administration, Romanians have purchased almost 134,000 new cars by now through Rabla 2013 Program and about 19,900 cars older than 10 years have been dismantled. Out of the total number of purchased cars, 690 benefited from green bonuses.
