The Sandero makes history for Dacia in January in one of the most important automotive markets in Europe. The new generation of Sandero managed to reach the first position in sales in Spain becoming the first Dacia model that was the best selling car in a country outside Romania. The previous success was registered also by Sandero, when it was ranked second in March 2010 in France.
Dacia managed to sell nearly 1,700 Sandero units in January 2013, that represented a market share of 3.4% of the total cars sold in Spain. The Romanian’s model performance is even more valuable as the Sandero was ranked 18th in the top selling models in Spain during 2012. This spectacular increase is due to the launching of the new generation of Sandero in December last year. Behind Sandero, in the best selling models ranking were Nissan Qashqai (1577 units sold) and Seat Leon (1352 units sold).
The other Dacia models were ranked on 48 – Duster (with 338 units sold), 76- Lodgy (182 units sold) and 121- Logan (60 units sold).
In the brand sales ranking, Dacia occupied the 13th position with 2,272 units sold in Spain, while the first positions were occupied by Seat (4123 units sold), Volkswagen (3730 units sold) and Opel (3629 units sold).
