Dacia is on an upward trend and manages to move from the suspension of activity to the extended working hours, in order to satisfy the demands of cars from customers in Europe.
Dacia managed to get semiconductors, so it had to call the factory workers from Mioveni from home. They worked on two shifts on Saturday, partially recovering production losses in recent months. Only in February, Dacia stopped the factory on February 2, 3, 4 and 5, at the Vehicle Plant, as well as on February 2, 3, 4 and 5, at the Mechanical and Chassis Plant, on several lines, including a general shutdown in two of these days. For the days when the workers are sent home, the salary received is 85% plus meal vouchers.
Now, as a result of partially solving the need for electronic components, Dacia called on Saturday, February 19, two shifts at the Vehicle Plant, and in the Mechanics and Chassis Plant the workers were present to produce the necessities required by the Vehicle Plant .
Favorable moment for Dacia
The European car market, in January 2022, was reflected in sales of only 822,423 units. During the same period, Dacia registrations increased by 19.1%, an important victory for the local manufacturer. There were still impressive figures on the car sales market in the first month of the new year, but the general trend is downward, except for the giant from Mioveni.
In other words, Dacia’s performance in Europe, including the EFTA States and the United Kingdom, the domestic manufacturer recorded sales of 34,150 units, an increase of 19.1% in volume. In this context, Dacia is very close to the sales of the parent brand in the group. As a reference, Renault sold only 42,219 units under its own brand. Finally, the Romanian manufacturer came to hold 4.2% of the European car market, up from 3.4% in the same period last year and over Honda (0.7%), Mazda (1.3%), Nissan (1.9%) or even Seat (2.9%), Citroen (3.2%), Fiat (3.3%) and Opel (4%).
