Infographic: The Renault-Nissan Alliance in Europe

JUN 25 2016 BY MARK KANE 17

22The Renault-Nissan Alliance highlights its presence in Europe with new infographic, as well as updates on Euro sales from its 6 (5 current offerings) all-electric cars cumulatively.

Lead by the Nissan LEAF and Renault Zoe, the Alliance has sold more than 335,000 EVs through April of 2016.

Besides EVs, the French-Japanese duo produced in Europe more than 2.5 million vehicles last year.

Expressed as a percentage, or by market share, electric vehicle sales aren’t that large, but the Alliance is still the regional market leader with half of the BEVs market.

The Renault ZOE is top all-electric model with growing perspective in Europe, while the Nissan LEAF is also strong and of course is the leader in worldwide sales.

Renault Kangoo Z.E. and Nissan e-NV200 still really don’t have any competition among commercial electric cars, so therefore control most of the market, as small as it is.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance was also the first and only OEM to launch a volume lithium-ion battery cell manufacturing site in Europe alongside a production line.

Past strong sales, we should note the one characteristic that separates the Renault-Nissan Alliance from all other traditional OEMs currently marketing plug-ins – supporting infrastructure.  Like in Japan and the US, the Alliance has funded the installation of more than 3,000 stations.

Please be so kind and remove UK from that map. It does not belong there. 😉

It is still a part of Europe. Just not the EU.
Color should be removed in two year or as fast as possible.

I thought the winking smiley was enough, but I should add to bottom of post:

Disclaimer: it’s sarcasm! ?

Like Switzerland and Norway, the UK should be white now not brown.


Shouldn’t that wait until the UK requests to leave and starts the up to two year process?

Or maybe until they are finished, and officially no longer in the EU, like Switzerland and Norway?


Britain’s European Commissioner Lord Jonathan Hill has resigned his post.

Europe’s “27” Foreign Minsters will gather without the British FM to discuss Brexit and the leading voices in the EU are demanding a “quick divorce.”

No need to wait on technicalities.


It’s like declaring you’re divorced simply because you made up your mind to get a divorce, and haven’t even talked to your lawyer about it yet. The “Brexit” is at the place of someone going around telling all his/her friends that they’ve decided to get a divorce. That doesn’t mean he or she is divorced!

Rather getting out over the skis, there.

Give them time. They haven’t updated the map yet for the 2006 Montenegro independence referendum.

It’s a pet peeve of mine to look at the outline of the western Balkan countries on the map to judge just how sloppy the organization putting out the map is. Also, the number of maps that still have the Czech Republic and Slovakia as one country is disturbingly high.

Norway never made a N’entrance, so it N’ever had to vote for or make a N’exit.

Well England and Wales anyway. And it won’t be called UK any more either.

Or turn it frosty-white like Norway.

The commercial cars are not without competitors. Peugeot has the electric Partner and Citroen the electric Berlingo, to name two.

Indeed, they still really don’t have any competition among commercial electric cars. 🙂

What is the cumulative worldwide sales of Tesla now?

Of those 3.000 chargers, how many are for the benefit of a car dealership?
