Just In Time For Thanksgiving, Renault ZOE Launches In Turkey


“#Renault #ZOE has now launched in #Turkey: what great news! Who’s next?”

Tweeted Renault Z.E.

Like the Tesla Model S, Nissan LEAF and BMW i3, the Renault ZOE is widely available in numerous countries, now including Turkey where only 190 EVs were sold in 2012, but the prediction calls for 44,000-plus to be sold in 2020.

Here’s what Frost & Sullivan predicts will happen in Turkey:

“Twelve OEMs are expected to launch their EV models in next five years. In terms of public charging stations, the country had 160 in 2012 and 120,000 more are expected to be installed by 2020.”

It’s almost turkey time here in the U.S. with Thanksgiving just around the corner.  Meanwhile, in Turkey, it’s turning into EV time.

Calls for capital PUNishment.

Finally Renault is getting serious about selling the cars with batteries included. LG cells proved to be reliable and the battery lease shouldn’t be mandatory, but an option.

Now the Renault Zoe with battery included will be called i-Zoe.

“#RenaultZOE #EV now available with battery included in purchase, from £18,388 after £5k grant, called i-ZOE to differentiate @renault_uk”

In Portugal and Spain, you will be able to buy the battery also if you pressure the dealers…

Looks like Renault is back in the game 🙂


With gas prices as high as I saw in Istanbul, seems like everyone would jump on plug-ins. Heck, even hybrids. I was surprised not to see more there.

When will Renault be coming back to the U.S.?
