Renault Romanian sub-brand Dacia, specializing in economy cars recently achieved the significant milestone of 4,000,000 vehicles produced at the Mioveni plant.

Dacia has been on a constant rise in production speed and efficiency at Mioveni since Renault takeover. The number 1 000 000 car was produced in 1985,  2 000 000 level was reached in 1998 (after 13 years) and 3 000 000 in 2007 (after 9 years). The production has been given a hike since Renault took over the brand in 1999 and invested 1.2 billion Euros in it.

That record is not astonishing though, given the fact that Dacia makes cheap cars that are popular in over populated countries! What is astonishing is that they make 65 vehicles each hour at the Mioveni plant, half of which Duster models!

The 4,000,000th car is a 4×4 caju brown Dacia Duster, top of the line version, Laureate, with an 1.5 dCI 110 HP engine, bought by a a 58 year old physician from Romania. That says a lot about the kind of people who buy are Dacias, doesn’t it!

“Duster is the fifth Dacia I’ve purchased so far. I have chosen Dacia because the cars are resistant, roomy, comfortable and have a low fuel consumption. Moreover, we had very easy access to spare parts and service network. I was drawn to Duster’s pleasant design, generous space, powerful engine and the safety it inspires. I wanted a 4×4 vehicle, a car for my family, which could take us fishing, on vacation, in the mountains”, said the Dacia customer when she received the keys of the car.
