Renault ZOE

France has reason to be happy for awhile as new plug-in electric car registrations reached an all-time high at 3,384 last month.

The result consists of 2,336 passenger BEVs (up 77% year-over-year), 450 delivery BEVs (down 14%), and 598 passenger PHEVs.

Both BEV and PHEV passenger cars reached record sales in June taking over 1.0% and 0.3% of the market, respectively. Electric commercial vehicles took some 1.1% of all LCVs.

Growth of sales is reinforced by superbonus on top of the €6,300 incentive (total up to €10,000 in case of BEVs).

Market was lead by Renault ZOE (any surprise?), which by the way achieved its own new sales record of 1,482 registrations.
