The decline in May was not that high, even despite there being no help from Chinese Renault City K-ZE.
Renault car sales in May 2020 were cut about in half over the same month in 2019, although in the case of electric cars things look better.
The preliminary sales result is 4,296 (down 18% year-over-year). Interestingly, about one in 20 new Renault passenger cars were all-electric.
After the first five months of 2020, the total result is over 27,200 (up 34% year-over-year) and hopefully, it will further recover.
