Renault reports a big 34% year-over-year decrease of its global passenger car sales in September and unfortunately, all-electric car sales also decreased.

In total, the French brand sold some 9,501 electric cars, which is 24% less than a year ago. It's a third consecutive month of decline and fifth out of nine this year. Not a common sight in the booming BEV market.

All-electric cars accounted for 8.3% of the total Renault passenger car sales globally (13.8% in Europe) and 3.7% of commercial vehicles (4.5% in Europe).

Renault electric car sales – September 2021


So far this year, Renault has sold some 73,018 electric cars (no change year-over-year). BEVs stand for 6.4% of the total passenger car sales globally (12.0% in Europe).

The number includes passenger and commercial BEVs, but excludes Twizy heavy quadricycles (L7e) and plug-in hybrids.


Last month, Renault sold over 7,400 ZOE and almost 1,500 Twingo Z.E. The Renault Kangoo Z.E. van noted almost 500 units.

In contrast, Renault's Dacia brand noted 4,167 sales of the all-new all-electric Dacia Spring Electric (almost 8,200 YTD). That is a surprisingly good result, not far from the Renault ZOE.

Considering that Dacia sold 38,337 units in total, the BEV share skyrocketed to 10.9% in a blink of an eye.

The JMEV's Eveasy brand sold in China some 367 EVs (2,281 YTD). The company is a joint venture between the Renault Group, Jiangling Motors Corporation Group (JMCG) and China Agricultural Development Construction Fund Corporation. The French manufacturer holds a controlling stake in JMEV since 2019.
