Dacia’s industrial feat to revamp its vehicles’ brand identity


24 hours: that’s how long it took Dacia to pull off an industrial tour-de-force. It switched all its models, at its three plants in Pitesti, Tangier and Casablanca, to its new brand identity at the same time. That’s 3,100 vehicles in a day! Dacia pulled off this one-of-a-kind industrial challenge because its organisation is agile and did it while keeping the quality of its vehicles flawless. It took over a year of meticulous preparation and coordination across all its departments. Christophe Dridi, Dacia’s VP Industry, tells us more about this metamorphosis.

It draws on the sporting expertise of Renault Group and Prodrive, a UK company specialising in motorsports.In keeping with Dacia’s famed approach, Sandrider was designed to focus on the essentials of motorsport, that is performance and victory. This innovative prototype cleverly exploits all the possibilities offered by the regulations in the Ultimate T1+ category, focusing primarily on agility and weight. It fully meets the essential needs of both drivers and co-drivers, who were actively involved in its development from the start. From the beginning of the project, and ahead of the many test sessions, the drivers and co-drivers offered their extensive experience and knowledge to both designers and engineers, mainly through hands-on design sessions using virtual reality.A very special Dacia, but a Dacia nonetheless, Sandrider is strongly aligned with the brand's core values.

  • What a difference a day makes! How Dacia changed its visual identity in just 24 hours

    It’s not unusual for manufacturers to spend years rolling out a new visual identity across their model line-up, but true to its innovative approach and famed ‘good thinking’, Dacia pulled it off in only 24 hours!With the brand’s bold new visual identity ready to transform the look of its vehicles, Dacia switched the design of all its models at its three manufacturing plants in Pitesti (Romania), Tangier and Casablanca (Morocco) to the new style all at the same time. Starting at 9h00am on 24 October 2022, production of the entire model range was seamlessly updated to the new visual identity over a single day – a feat which is unprecedented in the automotive industry.In total, 3,100 vehicles rolled off the production lines over the course of the day, equating to one every 50 seconds. The manufacturing achievement marked the completion of the roll-out of the brand’s new identity, which began with a change in communications materials in mid-2021, followed by its adoption by Dacia retailers. Beyond a simple shift in design, the new identity embodies commitments for the future and builds on the strongly held values that are behind the Dacia success story.It took over a year to ensure that such a monumental undertaking went without a hitch and that Dacia’s robust quality was maintained throughout the transition. Meticulous preparation and co-ordination took place across all the brand’s departments, spanning from IT to logistics and training to marketing.

    Just look how far Dacia has come! From its creation in 1968, to its acquisition by Renault Group in 1999 and down to the present day, it is the ‘small Romanian brand’ that grew and grew and went international, and it still uses the recipe that made it a success: offer the essential, at the best price. Today, Dacia is more than ever in sync with the times as it prepares to add a new chapter to its success story.
