Between 17 to 23 October, Dacia will attend Paris Auto Show 2022 – the Mondial de l’Auto at the Paris Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre. Located in Hall 6, the brand will showcase its models and exciting new developments.
The full range with the brand-new identity will make a world premiere alongside the recently revealed MANIFESTO concept car. A collector edition Duster will take centre stage for the first time, and Dacia’s first HYBRID 140 engine will also debut. Eco-designed branded merchandise will also be on display, adding to a truly immersive experience on a stand that powerfully explores the brand’s new direction.
DACIA takes on the new brand identity
Dacia has recently started a new chapter as it adopts a new brand identity. To date, this has included a new logo, rolled out simultaneously across its entire range (Spring, Sandero, Logan, Duster, and Jogger), new dealerships, new design and new colours. The Mondial de l’Auto is the chosen venue where Dacia will introduce these exciting developments to the general public for the very first time. On display will be the entire vehicle range, now bearing the new emblem – the Dacia Link – where the sleek lines of a ‘D’ and ‘C’ join together like the links of a chain, symbolizing robustness and simplicity. Through its logo, Dacia underscores its values: an essential brand that is cool, robust, outdoor and eco-smart (economic and ecological).
MANIFESTO concept car
The Dacia MANIFESTO concept car will make its world premiere on the Dacia stand.
While the MANIFESTO does not prefigure a future production model, it embodies Dacia’s vision of essential, excellent, robust, affordable, and environmentally friendly vehicles. It is a testing ground for the latest innovative features, some of which will end up on production models. The MANIFESTO is a very compact, lightweight car, more agile than fast, designed for the wilderness and great outdoors. It is a free expression of Dacia’s vision that serves as a tangible representation of its values and brand markers.
MANIFESTO is ESSENTIAL and COOLER than ever with its extractible single headlight, Media Control system, and YouClip accessory interface that will debut on the upcoming generation of Duster.
MANIFESTO is ROBUST, able to tackle any terrain with its airless tyres. It is waterproof and can be easily hosed down both inside and out.
MANIFESTO is ECO-SMART, using Starkle®, a unique material made using 20% recycled plastic with a speckled appearance. It will also make its debut on the next-generation Duster.
“MAT EDITION” DUSTER – collector car
Duster has sold more than 2 million units since its launch in 2010 and has become an iconic Dacia model.
In light of demands from car enthusiasts, Duster will be given pride-of-place on the Dacia stand with the car collector’s “Mat Edition”, a showcase of the model’s personality.
The exclusive edition will feature a unique setup, harnessing the powerful and efficient TCe 150 engine with an EDC gearbox, the best Dacia equipment, and exclusive body colour. Duster’s distinctive “Mat Edition” design will again boost the brand’s appeal, with orders opening at the end of 2022.
JOGGER to have 140 HP engine
The HYBRID 140 engine will be showcased on the Dacia stand with a dedicated demonstrator. The Jogger will become Dacia’s first hybrid next year. An expanding range of ECO-SMART solutions now includes, for the first time, a 140HP hybrid engine. The technology, already mastered within the Renault Group, is yet another opportunity for Dacia to leverage tried and tested components and proven technology.
Orders will begin in early 2023, with the start of sales in spring 2023.
Eco-designed range of merchandising
The Dacia range of merchandising includes backpacks, water bottles, caps, and raincoats. Only the essentials to help reconnect with nature and champion the brand’s values: simplicity, robustness, and authenticity. True to the new brand identity, the range uses recycled materials (raincoats and backpacks made of recycled polyester, caps made of recycled poly-cotton) and sustainable materials (aluminum water bottles).
The entire merchandising range is environmentally friendly, from product design to distribution channels. The collection will be available in a recycled and recyclable cardboard display that already features other merchandising. Once again, Dacia’s hunt to get rid of everything superfluous applies to its entire value chain.
