October ended a period of 15 consecutive months of year-over-year electric car sales growth, as Renault noted an 8% decrease last month.
The preliminary result of 4,663 is still not bad, taking into consideration the ZOE generation changeover.
The most interesting thing for the month is the first reported sales of an entry-level model for the Chinese market, the Renault City K-ZE. Renault sold 184 of them, but it might be thousands at some point in the future.
