And in 1.5 Years Renault will cross the 200.000 mark 😉

Actually people want to know about the Zoé ~300km. And have a big expectation for the “Mondial de l’automobile”.
But this year Renault could be under 50% of the market in France. Because of cars with more batteries like the Leaf 30kWh and the Soul EV.

The new Zoe and the new Leaf both get 400 km on the EU cycle. It’s the Ampera-e that may cause them trouble. But they will probably be significantly cheaper, so we should get an interesting battle in Europe in 2017. And the Zoe may well come out on top.

The LEAF 30 kWh will be offered at a lower price only at the low trim level.
