In the same time, exports of new cars increased by 4.4 percent in comparison to the same period in 2011, reaching 122.557 units. The exports of commercial vehicles dropped by 24.5 percent to some 7,092 units.

Dacia Duster continues to lead in the exports demands, with some 11,477 sold in May and a total of 59,754 units exported in the first five months of the year, followed by the Sandero model (6,867 units in May and 27,689 in 2012) and Logan (3,720 units sold in May).
