France: Dacia sales increase 95% in July image

The Dacia models sales in France have increased 95 percent in July compared to the same period of last month, thanks to new additions to the lineup.

After seven months in which Dacia’s new car registrations in France decreased, the Romanian based automaker has announced that sales of its models in the European country have increased by 95 percent last month. The French have registered 9,128 units of Dacia models last month compared to just 4,575 units in July 2011 and the growth can also be placed on the shoulders of the launch of the new Lodgy MPV, which saw Europe for the first time.

In the first seven months of the year, Dacia sold 50,307 cars in France, along with the 9,128 units registered in July 2012 but, when compared to the same period of last year, Dacia saw a decrease by 3.8 percent, which can be changed into a growth of new car registrations thanks to the positive July sales. Dacia’s sales in France should increase one more time when the new Dokker and Dokker Van models will be launched. France has the largest and most active Dacia owner’s club, with over 10,000 people registered and since 2004, the carmaker sold almost 2 million cars there.
