Renault ZOE Sales Top 30,000

OCT 17 2015 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 10

Though sales of the Renault ZOE are far below the world’s #1 selling pure electric car (the Nissan LEAF), Renault is proud to report on a milestone achievement of having sold 30,000 ZOEs since it launch in 2012 through September. ¬†Actually, our tally had ZOE sales exceeding 30,000 back in August, but now Renault is making it official.

Surely sales world be higher if ZOE (or Renaults itself) were offered in the U.S., but for an electric car offered mostly (almost entirely in its early years) under a battery rental program, we consider 30,000 to be an exceptional figure.

The latest ZOE updates add more range to the car and it’s now being offered with the battery included in several countries, so we expect (and have already seen so far this year) a sales surge in the coming months.

They could have sold twice as many if they did just a little advertising!

But they did…

The spots for the Renault SUVs are running 100 times more often.

On evsalesblogspot you can read around 11.000 Zoe in 2015, thats more than twice from 5.000 Soul EV sales worldwide in 2014 and 2015 !
So Zoe is selling very well!

Especially since the ZOE is only sold in Europe…

And has the stupid mandatory battery lease that makes the running costs high like an ICE car.

there is a purchase option but you pay a higher sticker price.

and not even in the entire Europe. Just announced they will start selling it in Bulgaria for example.

And another drawback, with the new R240 Engine, they removed 43KW fast charging capability. The max is now 22KW 3p AC-charging, which is not bad either. However a 30 mins charge from 0-80% should be standard option to every modern BEV.
