While the European automotive market is barely on track for gradual recovery after the coronavirus lockdown, the all-electric Renault ZOE is selling like never before.
The number of new registrations in June increased by 107% year-over-year to 10,944.
Renault just boasted that June 2020 was a record-breaking month for the ZOE in terms of new orders - more than 11,000 orders were placed - 11,158 to be precise.
In France, ZOE orders tripled in June (year-over-year) to a new record of 7,050, while in Germany it was 1,990 (up 117% year-over-year)!
We assume that the high demand is caused by revamped EV incentives in many European countries, especially France and Germany.
