Automobile Dacia

Automobile Dacia is a romanian car manufacturer founded in 1966.

C. Automobile Dacia S.A., commonly known as Dacia (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈdatʃi.a] (audio speaker iconlisten)), is a Romanian car manufacturer that takes its name from the historical region that constitutes present-day Romania. The company was established in 1966. In 1999, after 33 years, the Romanian government sold Dacia to the French car manufacturer Groupe Renault. It is Romania's largest company by revenue and the largest exporter, constituting 8% of the country's total exports in 2018. In 2019, the Dacia marque sold 736,654 passenger and commercial vehicles.

From January 2021 onwards the Dacia company became part of Renault's Dacia-Lada business unit.

History

The first facility in the area was built between 1942 and 1945, as an extension of the IAR aircraft manufacturer. The new factory, built in the Colibași-Pitești area under the order of Marshal Ion Antonescu (conducător of Romania during World War II), was scheduled to produce up to 600 aircraft engines per month. The building work was completed in 1945. After the war, the facility was taken over by the Romanian Railways, later generating the Dacia plants.

The company is a division of Renault, so blue and silver colors were used for the logo. Until 2014 the machines of this brand were decorated with a shield with the application of a forehead dragon. Later the designers took the English letter D as a basis and turned it on the side, having put on the flat edge the name of the brand.
