In April, the Renault brand (preliminary manufacturer's data) increased sales of all-electric car sales to 7,118 globally (up 183% year-over-year). We must remember that a year ago, the market was affected by COVID-19 lockdowns.
The number includes passenger and commercial BEVs, but excludes Twizy and plug-in hybrids.
All-electric cars accounted for 5.3% of the total Renault passenger car sales globally (10.7% in Europe) and 3.7% of commercial vehicles (4.5% in Europe).

The Renault ZOE remains the top selling electric model, but not dominant like in the past. In the recent months it was joined by the Renault Twingo Z.E., which also delivers noticeable numbers.

On top of that, Renault's Dacia brand noted 356 sales of the all-new all-electric Dacia Spring Electric (726 YTD).
