Newsflash...

Renault recently issued the Tweet seen above in which the automaker states that through the end of June, its plug-in electric car sales exceeded 10,000 units.

So, more than 10,000 sold in the first six months of 2015 and likely well over 10k more expected in the last 6 months of 2015, which would bring the YTD total to over 20,000 units when 2015 comes to an end.

Renault Zoe - Best Selling EV In Europe For June

During June, the Renault Zoe was actually the strongest seller in Europe (the only region of significant presence for the brand), moving 2,500 copies, a rare win over the monthly strong performer - the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

For the year, the Zoe has accumulated 8,500 sales, while the Renault Kangoo ZE (van) is ~1,600, bringing the total north of 10,000 between the two alone.  If you consider the Twizy a full-fledged electric vehicle, then add on another ~1,200 sales.
