Despite some disappointing numbers of ZOE sales in France, Renault’s flagship electric still managed to get into top three in the sales ranks for electric and hybrid vehicles.

According to L’Automobile Magazine via Best Selling Cars, ZOE is #3 on the sales chart with 3,592 units sold after six months.  Of course, that’s the hybrid and electric vehicle sales chart.

It seems ZOE is close enough to fight at least for second place in second half of the year with the hybrid Toyota Auris.

Pos Model 2013 EH EH% 2013 Pos
1 Toyota Yaris 6,280 42% 14,796 15
2 Toyota Auris 4,341 72% 6,002 43
3 Renault Zoe 3,592 100% 3,592 70
4 Peugeot 3008 3,243 15% 21,569 6
5 Peugeot 508 2,457 21% 11,873 22
6 Citroen DS5 1,764 36% 4,834 52
7 Toyota Prius 1,275 100% 1,275 n/a
8 Toyota Prius+ 1,233 100% 1,233 n/a
9 Lexus CT 200h 623 100% 623 n/a
10 Honda Jazz 541 n/a n/a n/a
11 Nissan Leaf 536 100% 536 n/a
12 Lexus RX 450h 453 n/a n/a n/a

The most popular hybrid in France is Toyota Yaris (about 42% of Yaris were sold in the hybrid version there). Toyota Auris has an even higher ratio of hybrids vs. conventional drivetrain – 72%.

What is interesting is that the larger Toyota Prius is far behind the leaders.

Outside of Top 10, we find the Nissan LEAF, which has some chance to go move up the list with just a slight sales improvement in the second half.

    Way to go Zoe! Those are some great sales numbers. Totally dominating all over the Leaf and even most of the hybrids!

    I wonder how that will change with the Ford hybrids coming later this year.

    Hybrids are not EVs so apples and oranges. Find an overview of EV sales in France here:

    The fact that the Prius sells so little compared to the Yaris and the Auris is very simple: we Europeans prefer smaller cars.
