Dacia on the road to recovery in June The Groupe Renault resists

In 2020, the brand celebrates 15 years of success on the French market. In the first half of the year, Dacia suffered from its exposure to the individual customer market, which was heavily impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. However, in June, Dacia took full advantage of customers' return to the sales network, with orders doubling compared to June 2019. Dacia ranks fourth in the passenger car market, with 5.7% of the market (down 0.9 points).

Dacia's gasoline and LPG dual fuel offering is gaining momentum, with registrations doubling to 3,747 units compared with 2019 as a whole.

Sandero retains its position as the best-selling vehicle for individual customers in France and ranks sixth in the top 10 passenger cars.

The Groupe Renault resists

In the first half, Groupe Renault's PC + LCV registrations totaled 242,534 units, down 36.1%. Groupe Renault's PC + LCV market share was 27.2% in the first half (+0.5 points). It rose 0.5 points to 26.1% for passenger cars and 0.2 points to 31.7% for light commercial vehicles.

Ivan Segal, Senior Vice President, Market Area France, Groupe Renault said: Like the entire automotive sector, we went through a very difficult first half due to the health context. I salute our sales network for its exemplary commitment and the remarkable solidarity it has shown during this period. The strong upturn in activity in June is encouraging. Renault's new models as a whole, and our new E-TECH hybrid technology in particular, are proving successful. These will be strong assets in the second half to support our sales.
