Renault Sold 36,000 Electric Cars (Up 38%) In 2017
Renault had a strong 2017 with all-electric car sales hitting a new record of roughly 36,300 (up some 38% year-over-year).
The French company noted nearly 24% share of passenger all-electric car sales in Europe last year, which is the biggest share among all brands.
Also, Renault ZOE, with its 41 kWh battery, maintained the title of best-selling electric car in Europe – nearly 32,000 total (up 45%).
Kangoo Z.E. increased sales by just several percent to around 4,300 as Z.E. 33 (33 kWh) came a bit late to the scene.
Total all-electric car sales (since 2011) for Renault exceed 126,000 units (excluding Twizy).
For 2018, Renault announced the introduction of Master Z.E. with just a 33 kWh battery. We believe that its sales volume will be smaller than Kangoo Z.E.
Renault EVs are the most popular in France:
