Unbeatable quality-price ratio, new models help Dacia weather crisis

Dacia, Romania’s first carmaker, was set up in 1966, when the Mioveni plant, in the southern part of the country, was built. France’s Renault currently owns 99.43% of Dacia. Dacia produces passenger vehicles such as Logan sedan, Logan MCV, Dacia Sandero and Duster and commercial vehicles such as Logan Van and Logan Pick-Up. In 2010, Dacia sold more than 348,000 vehicles, exporting most of its production to France (110,076 vehicles), Germany (40,500) and Italy (21,930).
