DACIA grew by 3% in 2021, with sales reaching 537,095, in a market tainted by the pandemic and the electronic component crisis

Up 3.1% compared to the last year, DACIA volumes reached 537,095 units in 2021 in a stable market, despite setbacks caused by the pandemic and the electronic components crisis. DACIA’s full-scope market share increased by 0.1 points, at 3.5%.

DACIA’s growth can be largely attributed to the popularity of its new range with retail customers. In 2021, DACIA’s European market share for retail sales of passenger cars reached a record-breaking 6.2%, for the first time earning the title of the third most sold brand in Europe on this channel.

DACIA is the leading private VP brand in France and Romania and in the Top5 in 9 other European markets (Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Austria, Poland, Czech Rep. Hungary and Croatia). In Germany, the brand joins the Top10 and DACIA maintains its leadership in Morocco.

The retail performance builds on the successful new generations of DACIA Sandero and DACIA Duster.

DACIA Sandero has 226,825 sales in 2021, with nearly 90% of these volumes achieved by the third generation of the model. In 2021 DACIA Sandero remains the leader in the European retail customer market for the fifth consecutive year. In some countries, Sandero is also the best-selling car across all customer channels, making it Europe’s second best-selling vehicle.

DACIA Duster is following a similar successful direction as it remains the best-selling SUV with retail customers since 2018. With 186,001 units sold in 2021, Duster reaches more than 2 million sales since its launch in 2010.

With sales starting in March, the introduction of DACIA Spring to the EV market has been a resounding success, with 27,876 units sold and more than 46,000 orders registered by the end of 2021. Designed to make electric cars as accessible as possible for daily usage, Spring has since become a benchmark vehicle in many markets, with 80% of Spring customers new to the brand.

Designed around customer-driven essential features, the DACIA range draws more and more customers to choose the most equipped versions: 90% of DACIA Spring customers opted for the Comfort Plus line, 70% of Sandero vehicles were sold as Stepway models, while 60% of Duster customers chose the Prestige finish.

This enthusiasm for the most equipped models is supported with a new-customer conquest rate of 60% (from outside Renault Group). At the same time, 75% of the DACIA customers renew their car with a model from one of the Renault Group brands.

2022 will see DACIA Jogger join the ranks of the brand’s already successful line-up. As a reinvented 7-seat family car, Jogger will meet the needs of customers looking for comfort, spaciousness, and modularity.

DACIA’s strategic plan will continue to roll out throughout 2022, with the implementation of the new brand identity across, both in the network (from the first half of the year) and on the products range (at the end of the year).

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 ...
