Renault could stop producing a Dacia family model, according to a group’s spokesperson, writes Autonews Europe. The three options are Logan MCV, Dokker and Lodgy.

The three models are at risk because of a market shift away from vans and stations wagons, Inovev analyst Jamel Taganza said.

“The market in these segments is moving toward SUV/crossovers across the subcompact, compact and economy car segments,” Taganza said.

Of the three, Logan MCV’s is the only model on the rise: Lodgy’s sales are down 48 percent after the first semester and Dokker is still flat.

Dacia is by far the fastest-growing major car manufacturer in Europe. Its first-half sales on the continent jumped 35 percent to 195,069 units, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association.

Keeping any weak-selling models in the lineup could put that profitability at risk.
