Renault has increased its electric car sales in July by 98% year-over-year to 10,468 and in August by 73% year-over-year to 7,047.
That's a really strong result, but the volume is now lower, following the general trend in France (including a huge spike, caused by temporary incentives).
So far this year, Renault sold more than 60,000 EVs. For comparison, it was over 61,000 in the 12-months of the record year 2019.
That's 6% of Renault's global passenger car volume and 3.7% of light commercial vehicles, but as EVs are sold almost solely in Europe, the share in Europe is closer to 10.5% and 4.6% respectively.
