Mioveni is one of the most complex powertrain plants on account of the number of products and processes it handles. It has been producing aluminium parts, engines and transmissions for Dacia, Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Daimler for 52 years. It is also home to the largest aluminium foundry in Renault Group (and in Romania).
It produces over one-third of the Group’s total aluminium output and a significant portion of Renault Group’s engine and transmission systems, including full 4×4 transmissions (a purpose-designed gearbox with a front module and final drive unit).
The powertrain R&D Centre in Titu is a standard-setter for engine, gearbox and software development, and for calibration and testing facilities.

The Mioveni powertrain plant celebrated its 3,000,000th engine milestone in autumn 2022. The unit was an ECO-G 100 mixed petrol and LPG engine (1 litre displacement, 100 hp and 170 Nm of torque), which was sent to a Dacia plant to power a Logan Prestige model for a Romanian customer. The staff also celebrated another milestone: the aluminium foundry’s 5,000,000th cylinder block. The foundry’s five casting presses currently produce cylinder blocks for the 1.0 litre TCe (HR10DET), 0.9 litre TCe (H4) and 1.0 litre SCe (BR10) engines.
