Renault Sold 32% Fewer Electric Cars In November
November wasn’t good month for Renault in terms of electric car sales. Only 1,804 electric vehicles were sold (1,991 EVs including the Twizy), which is 32% fewer than a year ago.
The French company is clearly waiting on better times ahead, as the new ZOE Z.E. 40’s (41 kWh) arrival this month with hopefully set a new bar for EV sales heading into 2017.
Renault all-electric model breakdown for November:
- Renault ZOE – 1,488 (down 28%)
- Renault Kangoo Z.E. – 316 (down 46%)
- Renault Twizy – 187 (up 20%)
A similar case of “new car blues” concerns the Renault Kangoo Z.E., which will also soon will get a big battery pack upgrade, enabling 50% more range – leaving sales of today’s current edition to meander lower.
So far this year, Renault has sold 23,165 electric cars (25,242 including Twizy), which is still 18% more than year ago.
