Last month's result is nearly 30% better than a year ago, and represents roughly 1.05% of overall Renault sales.

Renault electric vehicle sales in May:

  • Renault ZOE - 2,106 (up 25.6%)
  • Renault Kangoo Z.E. - 343 (up 57.3%)
Excluding the runabout Twizy, and a very small number of still hanging around Fluence ZEs, Renault has sold nearly 14,500 electric cars this year - compared to over 11,000 at this time in 2016.

After five months, ZOE alone has noted around 13,000 of those sales up - from around 9,500 through May of 2016.
