NEW EURO5 BIOETHANOL AND DIESEL POWERPLANTS FOR DACIA DUSTER IN FRANCE

· 4x2 versions of Duster, Dacia's off-road vehicle which was launched in France in April 2010 and which is already proving very successful, are now available with two new Euro5 powerplants:
- the 1.6 16V 105 E85 engine,
- and the dCi 90 DPF1 diesel engine.
· All versions of Dacia Duster (petrol and diesel, 4x2 and 4x4) comply with the Euro5 emissions standard.
· Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2 sees Dacia extend its line-up of bioethanol2 vehicles in France. The newcomer joins Logan MCV 1.6 16V 105 E85 and

Sandero 1.6 MPI 90 E85 which were launched in October 2009 and March 2010 respectively.

Tax-paid prices in France for Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2, which replaces the 1.6 16V 105 4x2 version, start from €11,900.
    Buyers of Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2 in France benefit from attractive tax incentives: the eco-bonus surcharge levied in France does not apply to this bioethanol-fuelled version, while the registration document is free of charge or comes at half-price in many of the country's administrative departments.

The 1.6 16V 105 E85 engine is flexible and runs equally as well on E85 fuel as its does on 95- octane, E10 95-octane and 98-octane petrol.

· Tax-paid prices in France for Dacia Duster dCi 90 DPF 4x2, which replaces the dCi 85 4x2 version, start from €14,700.

· Order books for these two new versions are already open across the sales network.
· Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2 emits 160 g/km with E85 fuel and 165g/km with petrol3. The 'wellto- wheel' CO2 emissions of Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 are 96g/km 4. Bioethanol is a diversified and renewable energy source that helps reduce dependence en fossil fuels.
Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2 is economical to run: the pump price of E85 fuel is particularly attractive in France (0.86 €/litre on average). Moreover as E85 contains up to 85 per cent ethanol, its price is less subject to fluctuations in crude oil than petrol.
· Dacia Duster dCi 90 DPF 4x2 emits just 130g of CO2/km and consumes 5.0 litres/100km.
This diesel powerplant is equipped with a self-regenerating particulate filter.
· Both new Dacia Duster versions qualify for the Dacia eco² signature, since :
- Dacia Duster dCi 90 DPF 4x2 emits less than 140g of CO2/km, while Dacia Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 runs on biofuel;
- both versions are manufactured at the brand's ISO 14001-certifed plant in Pitesti in Romania;
- more than five per cent of the plastic the two versions contain is sourced from recycling, and both are 95 per cent end-of-life recoverable.
· Like all Dacia vehicles, Duster 1.6 16V 105 E85 4x2 and dCi 90 DPF 4x2 come with a three-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever of the two thresholds is reached first).
