What makes Dacia different?
Dacia suggested that they always manage to sell such “temptingly” priced cars and still they manage to make a massive profit on them. What is their secret? And how do they make such cost effective cars?
Well according to Dacia they use the simplest ideas to keep the cost down, even down to using the same windows for every single car in their fleet. However, Dacia suggested that even though their prices are effective, they are known around the world for their unique quality and outstanding reliability and ensure their cars are “strong” to cope with adverse weather conditions from Brazil to Russia.
A Dacia spokesman stated “From humble beginnings, the Romanian brand has gone from strength to strength since Renault bought it in 1999 and transformed its fortunes. For the last eight years in a row it has been the fastest-growing automotive brand in Europe, rising from under 5,000 sales in 2004 to shifting a mighty 350,000 last year. And the final piece of the jigsaw is the UK.”
