Dacia Sales in France Double

During the month of July, French car sales decreased by 7 percent compared to the already low result seen last year. In total 148,966 cars were sold, and domestic carmakers PSA Peugeot Citroen (-9.9 percent) and Renault (-26.6 percent) were among the hardest hit.

But every cloud has a silver lining, and Renault’s budged sub-brand Dacia performed exceptionally. Due mainly to the new Lodgy, Dacia has seen demand for 9,128 of its affordable cars.

This represents an increase of 99.5 percent over last year’s 4,575 units, according to figures from the CCFA (Comite des Constructeurs Francais d’Automobiles).

France is Dacia’s biggest Western European market. During the first seven months of the year, they delivered 50,307 models there, representing a decrease of just 3.8 percent.

Dacia is expected to increase its sales even further in the coming months, as the company launches new products, such as the replacement for the Sandero hatch and Logan sedan.
