Dacia-LADA chief designer may leave his post


The new chief designer of Dacia-LADA Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos will go to competitors without starting work on Russian cars. The upcoming resignation of the specialist was indirectly confirmed by the Renault Group, saying that David Durand will become the interim head of the Dacia-LADA design department.

According to the Motor.ru portal, the departure of Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos came as a surprise to the head of RenaultGroup Luca de Meo, because the Spanish designer got a new position just last week. The Bild edition claims that Mesonero-Romanos was offered to head the design department of AlfaRomeo, and the work in Stellantis seemed to the ex-Seat stylist more promising. If the rumors prove to be true, Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos's motivation is clear: Dacia recently introduced the new Logan and Sandero, the design concepts of the updated Duster and the Bigster crossover have already been approved, and in the near future the Spaniard would have to work on creating the LADA corporate identity on Dacia platforms.

Since Mesonero-Romanos solved successfully a similar problem in Seat, the decision to change LADA for AlfaRomeo does not look surprising. When Mesonero-Romanos moved to RenaultGroup in October 2020, the Spaniard clearly counted on the position of chief designer of Renault, but this post was given to Gilles Vidal.
