10 million Dacias


Wednesday, April 20, Mioveni plant (Romania), a Urban Gray Duster Extreme L.E. just off the assembly line, takes a commemorative and highly symbolic photo. It is indeed the 10 millionth Dacia vehicle produced since the birth of the brand.


  • 2,6 million Dacia Sandero & Sandero Stepway, the best-selling vehicle to individuals in Europe since 2017
  • 2,3 million Dacia 1300 (and variants)
  • 2,1 million Dacia Duster, the best-selling SUV to private customers in Europe since 2018
  • 1,95 million Dacia Logan and Logan MCV


Dacia started assembling its very first vehicle, the Dacia 1100, in August 1968.

The following year, the iconic Dacia 1300 model gave birth to a whole family of derivatives (sedan, station wagon, sports coupe, LCV). It remained in production for 35 years and has left its mark on the Romanian automotive landscape.

The takeover of the brand by Renault Group in 1999 opened a new chapter in the history of Dacia.

With the launch of Logan in 2004, Dacia became an international carmaker and the pace of sales accelerated. In 2005, Dacia opens a production line outside Romania, at the Somaca plant in Casablanca (Morocco).

The expansion of the model range (Sandero, Duster, etc.) and their immediate successes make it necessary to expand production capacity:

  • inauguration of a brand-new plant in the port city of Tangier (Morocco) in 2012,
  • opening in 2016 of a production line in Oran, exclusively for the Algerian market,
  • production of Spring, Dacia’s first 100% electric vehicle, will start in 2020 at the Shyian plant in China.

Dacia vehicles are currently sold in 44 countries, mainly in Europe and the Mediterranean basin

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
