Dacia is organizing its second annual picnic on Sunday September 19, at two French sites: Mousseaux-sur-Seine (west of Paris) and Cublize (west of Lyon). Last year’s picnic, on September 27, 2009, drew more than 4,000 people, and this second Dacia. Community Picnic is expected to be just as successful.
The Dacia Community Picnic is an original event at which Dacia customers and their families meet up to enjoy special features and attractions, for young and old. All Dacia owners in France are invited to come along for a fun day out at a leisure centre offering free activities such as canoeing, pedal boating and bouncy games. There will be a demonstration of Duster’s off-road capabilities on a special 4×4 track (with instructor), and other Dacias will also be on show.
In the six years since its French debut in 2005, Dacia has become a major player on the French automotive
market. At the end of August 2010, Dacia ranked fourth (behind Renault, Peugeot and Citroen) in the consumer
sales charts, with 70,000 registrations, a 125% surge on the first eight months of 2009 for market share of 8.2%. In 2010 so far, Sandero is the biggest-selling car on the French consumer market. And Duster, the latest in the Dacia line-up, already ranks third in the off-roader charts, after just six months on the market.
