DUSTER, Romanians' favorite model

DACIA has registered approximately 7,000 orders for its DUSTER SUV from Romanian customers in the year that followed the launch of the most expensive model it assembles in Mioveni. By the end of March the local car manufacturer had delivered 5,820 units, Evenimentul Zilei informs, quoting the January and February data offered by the Association of Romanian Automobile Manufacturers and Importers. 90 percent of the clients opted for full setup options. FORD's production in Craiova remained at last year's level of slightly less than 900 units per month, while in DACIA's case production grew by several percentage points. DUSTER was behind more than half of that growth, while SANDERO's production dropped by 58 percent and MCV's production dropped by 32 percent. DACIA exported almost 90 percent of its production. The overall auto production in Romania totaled 91,917 units, up by 7 percent compared to the same period in 2010.
