November wasn’t good month for Renault in terms of electric car sales.  Only 1,804 electric vehicles were sold (1,991 EVs including the Twizy), which is 32% fewer than a year ago.

The French company is clearly waiting on better times ahead, as the new ZOE Z.E. 40’s (41 kWh) arrival this month with hopefully set a new bar for EV sales heading into 2017.

Renault all-electric model breakdown for November:

  • Renault ZOE – 1,488 (down 28%)
  • Renault Kangoo Z.E. – 316 (down 46%)
  • Renault Twizy – 187 (up 20%)

A similar case of “new car blues” concerns the Renault Kangoo Z.E., which will also soon will get a big battery pack upgrade, enabling 50% more range – leaving sales of today’s current edition to meander lower.

So far this year,  Renault has sold 23,165 electric cars (25,242 including Twizy), which is still 18% more than year ago.

Incoming 41kwh battery

60 in the wings.

Give you have to lease the battery / pay monthly, Renault cars are highly overpriced in Europe, especially the Twizy.

Don’t understand the beginning your posting at all 🙁
Maybe you mean:
– At least in Germany Renault started offering the battery for purchase together with Zoe 41kWh.
– Well, e.g. in Germany the prices are actually lower (for E-Cars, the Twizy is not a car in the meaning of EU law) due to incentitives. Officially in Germany it’s 4kEUR (2kEUR from government, 2kEUR from the manufacturer of the vehicle that is sold with governmental incentitives). Renault even offers 1kEUR more incentitives. But that 5kEUR are not mentioned in the price-list.
Or in other words: Maybe the manufacturers increased the prices corresponding to the incentitives they (have to) pay…


Lol… this guy! What a sense of humour!

Zoe in any form is cheapest EV on the market…. don’t be fooled into assuming the price you see on a dealers web site is what you’ll pay. £17k will get you a Zoe ZE40i, visit RZOC for details.

I don’t know if Renault will deliver some Zoé 40 in december, but the Zoé was the car that was the must ordered in the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris.

The french people was quite enthusiastic about an electric car that are capable of 300km of range for an “affordable” price.

I will wait with impatience the stats of january 2017. The first half of 2016 was very good, the second half was very disappointed.

There is a very long waiting list for Zoe. Starting in February, Renault will move some of Clio production from Flins factory to Slovenia. That means higher production capacity for Zoe (built in Flins).
