The Mioveni manufacturer seems to have done a very good job in cushioning the impact of the global semiconductor crisis on production, and this is reflected in the very good sales of Dacia.
While most carmakers around the world are facing a painful drop in year-over-year sales, even in a post-pandemic period, Dacia has emerged as a European winner. Registrations have just been added for the first two months of 2022, and Dacia Sandero and Dacia Duster enthusiasts have many reasons to rejoice.
Dacia Sandero, the first place in Europe

In addition to this impressive victory, in the top 15 there are two other cars produced in Mioritic lands. These are Ford Puma and Dacia Duster.
