Renault Electric Car Sales Quietly Surpass 50,000
We are still awaiting an official announcement from Renault celebrating 50,000 electric vehicle sales, but even without official recognition, we can confidentially report that the milestone has been achieved.
Despite us indicating some three weeks ago that Renault was close to the milestone and, with numbers from October now added in, the French automaker remains silent.
So, we’ll do Renault’s work for them by announcing the achievement of this 50,000-unit milestone.
Ben Vo alerted us to this achievement via Twitter:
“@InsideEVs.hello good evening please can you make a scoop about the total sales of renault ze: because at this time more than 50 000

Well, our numbers, based on Renault’s preliminary data, are slightly different, but anyways the mark of 50,000 units fell at the end of October or in early November. Here are the sales numbers at the end of October 2014:
- Fluence Z.E. 3,935
- Kangoo Z.E. 15,782
- ZOE 16,397
- Twizy 14,160
- Total 50,274 (excluding Twizy 36,114)
ZOE is finally the best selling electric car to date in Renault’s lineup.
