Dacia’s aggressive marketing for the launch of the Duster and Sandero continues with pre-orders needing just £100 deposit.
At the beginning of April Dacia told us that they would be offering ‘Shockingly Affordable’ prices in the UK when the Dacia Brand – Renault’s budget offering – arrives in showrooms.
Now we’re at ’75 Days to Launch’ according to Dacia (although that’s just the point when Dacia reveals prices for the Duster and Sandero – cars won’t arrive until January 2013) they’ve announced that you can pre-order a new Dacia with just £100 deposit.
Dacia say they’ve already had ‘thousands’ of potential buyers sign-up for updates on the Duster and Sandero and are very bullish on sales. And they probably have every right to be.
With the 2WD Duster set to cost under £10k they could very well have budget conscious UK buyers queueing up for the chance to grab some proper budget motoring. That’s what happened in Europe and that’s why the UK has had to wait for the India built Duster to arrive in RHD – existing demand was so high.
You can’t actually place your pre-order for the Duster for £100 yet, but you will be able to from June on Dacia’s website.
