Renault-Nissan Alliance – ZOE and LEAF

Second part of the BEV report includes a top selling models breakdown.

Nissan LEAF, with 13,801 registrations stands just a few hundred units ahead of Renault ZOE with 13,561. Because the 30 kWh LEAF deliveries just begin in earnest in January for Europe, ZOE could be #1 this year for the very first time.

In a strong third position is Tesla Model S11,670.  Just behind the three leaders, and also with a surprisingly high number, is the VW e-Golf at 9,325. The all-electric BMW i3 is 5th in Europe at 5,461 (REx are not included).

Kia Soul EV stands at 3,869 (compared to just 836 in U.S.). Nissan’s e-NV200 leads the utility/van category with 3,297, and is more popular than the similar Renault Kangoo Z.E. with 3,012. The Mercedes B-Class ED noted 2,462 (1,768 in U.S.).

The  remaining 9,943 is divided among all other models.

  1. Renault-Nissan dominates the market.

    1. Tech01x says:

      Not if you are counting revenue or GWh shipped.

      1. Bob says:

        Do wee need so much GWh like possible, thats like we need all a Ford F-Series. I hope there is some point people get more reason what they really need.
        In China the sales of Panda EV (minimally EV)go through the roof. Batterys get better range will come by itself and sure there will be china companies sell millions of EVs like the hundred millions of EV scooters in China, before all others.

      2. How about counting number of passenger seats, number of wheels, …?

      3. Plug Life says:

        …or the taxpayer money grabbed.

        1. Rob says:

          You better start counting all the taxpayer money that has been used for supporting fossil fuels. That is much worse.

  2. Kalle says:

    I allways wish for electric car sales as a factor of the population.
    It makes it much clerer in what country sales are going well and in what it doesent.
