Renault posted an outstanding EV sales result in Europe as both ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. were selling better than ever.

Renault's preliminary sales result for the month of June 2020 reveals a new all-time record of 12,309, which is 86% more than a year ago!

The French company hugely benefited from stronger incentives for EVs in some European countries, especially in its home market - France, and also in Germany. Demand for ZOE is booming.

After the first six months of 2020, the total result is over 42,600 (up 38% year-over-year).

In Europe, nearly 10% of new passenger Renaults sold in June (and over 10% YTD) were all-electric. Because Renault does not sell many EVs outside of Europe, the global share was lower: 6.5% in June and 6% YTD.
