Renault Electric Vehicle Sales Report August 2014
Preliminary sales data from Renault is indicating that sales of its full-size electric cars amounted to 760 in August or 974 including Twizy. Almost all of those deliveries (99%) are assigned for Europe.
This is not a strong result (lower than last August) for Renault, but August is the slow month in terms of auto sales in Europe.
Year-to-date numbers increased last month to 7,424 full size cars and 9,080 including Twizy. This is ~ 30% less than in 2013 (both for cars and Twizys).
Sales of Kangoo Z.E. reached about 2,550 this year, while ZOE almost 4,800. Twizy is at 1,656. Fluence Z.E. shrunk to 82.
Sadly for Renault, all of its EV models fell in the first eight months. However, the differences for Kangoo Z.E. and ZOE aren’t that big (~1,000) so with four months to go there is still a chance to improve.
Anticipating questions – PC is passenger version, while LCV is delivery version. In case of ZOE, it’s more a registration category than actually a design change. ZOE sales in 2012 include demo cars, as official sales began later.
