Automobile S.C. Dacia S.A., sometimes known simply as Dacia, is a Romanian automaker that derives its name from the ancient territory that today makes up Romania. The business was founded in 1966. After 33 years, the Romanian government sold Dacia to Groupe Renault, a French automaker, in 1999.
It generated the most income of any firm in Romania and accounted for 8% of all exports made by the nation in 2018. Dacia sold 537,074 passenger and commercial cars in 2021.
The Dacia firm joined Renault's Dacia-Lada business unit in January 2021. Renault sold Lada's parent business, AvtoVAZ, to NAMI, a state-owned organization in Russia, in May 2022.
Between 1942 and 1945, the first facility in the region was constructed as an addition to the IAR aircraft manufacturing. Marshal Ion Antonescu, Romania's conductor during World War II, ordered the construction of the new facility in the Colibași-Pitești region, with a monthly production capacity of up to 600 aircraft engines. The construction was finished in 1945. The Romanian Railways took over the site after the war, and it eventually produced the Dacia plants.
