Renault is aiming to be (together with Nissan) the global leader in EVs. To date, Renault sold over 34,000 electric vehicles. Lets look at how this year sales compare to previous years.
Renault Electric Vehicles Sales After 9 Months In 2011-2013
From preliminary sales data, we can see that after the first nine months of 2013, the total number of deliveries is barely growing compared to 2012.
Fluence Z.E. is still on sale with 72 deliveries in September, but YTD number are half of last year results. Kangoo Z.E. scored small growth, but the sharp fall in Twizy sales is just barely replaced by Zoe with over 6,500 sales.
In 2011 and 2012. Renault sold approximately 20,000 electric vehicles. This year Renault has so far added over 14,000 to that total.
With the new Renault Samsung Motors's SM3 Z.E. that will be potentially be produced at a level of 1,000 copies this year, Renault group still could sell 20,000 electric vehicles this year and 40,000 cumulative. This is quite a lot, but still far from the automaker's original plans.
