Renault electric car sales – June 2017

In June, Renault set a new all-time record for electric vehicles sales. The month saw sales of 4,498 EVs,  which was 56% higher than a year ago,  and 350+ units higher than the previous all-time record set in March.

Renault ZOE Z.E. 40

For the Renault brand, EVs (not including the city Twizy) stand at 1.65% share of all sales in June, and 1.4% for the first half of 2017.

Renault electric vehicle sales in June:

  • Renault ZOE4,251 (up 73%)
  • Renault Kangoo Z.E.245 (down 42%)

In the first six months, Renault has sold total nearly 18,900 electric cars (up 34%), including nearly 17,300 ZOE.

Europe: “Renault maintained its lead in the electric vehicle segment with a market share of 26.8%. Sales volumes increased 34%. Registrations of ZOE, Europe’s top-selling electric vehicle, rose 44%.”

France: “ZOE remains the clear leader in the electric vehicle market, accounting for almost 70% of electric passenger car sales in France with over 9,200 registrations – a year-on-year increase of over 42%.”

The Kangoo Z.E. doesn’t account for many sales, but the new longer-range version maybe will enable higher sales.

Very different politics for BEV between GM & Renault.
The factory that build the Renault Zoé is running at 100% of capacity. And in the other hand, GM stop production knowing that in Europe you can’t put hand on one of the Bolt (Opel Ampera-e).
Renault have to give some production of the Renault Clio to others factories , and raise the production of the Zoé.
And we start to have some informations for the Zoé II, Renault and Nissan have a very bold plan for their BEV productions in the near futur.

Could the downtime at the chevy factory be to reconfigure and allow more production for the bolt instead of the ice counterpart also built? I unferstand The Michigan battery factory is being upgraded presently to build bolt batteries

Currently GM is selling more plug ins than Renault.

Having said that the Zoe has real potential to be a top worldwide seller this year.

Renault don’t build PHEV, they build only BEV as plug ins vehicules. If they make a Clio PHEV or a Mégane PHEV, sales would be great.
It would be better if Zoé has a Combo DC fast charge capability. But at least the ~40kWh is a very good feature.

And about twizy? Are they selling well? I don’t have any idea, since all selling figures excludes twizy.

Last heard the numbers hovered around the one hundred mark for sold Twizy’s in Europe. No large quantities but Twizy has more or less always been a niche city quad.

Still love mine though!

Congrats Renault. Please sell Zoe under Nissan make in USA & Canada.

And expand the sales of Zoe to China and S. America.
