Sales Of Electric Renault Surge 72% In June To Over 3,000

JUL 27 2015 BY MARK KANE 6

Renault scored in June its second best month of electric vehicle sales (data is preliminary, so we don’t know exactly which peak is higher).

With 3,006 cars and 289 Twizy for a total 3,295, the French manufacturer can be happy because year-over-year growth reached 87% for cars and 72% for all EVs (including Twizy).

Strong sales growth in Europe (where most Renault EVs are sold) should continue as in June the company noted a record number of orders.

In total, Renault delivered about 11,500 EVs so far this year, while in the whole of 2014 it sold 18,000.

The largest part of the Renault’s pie belongs to ZOE, which achieved 10 months of uninterrupted growth, often by 100% year-over-year. Some 2,500 were sold in June, around 1,000 more than the second best Nissan LEAF.

With over 28,000 ZOE sold in 2.5 years and over 8,000 in the last six months, ZOE continues its pursuit of the Nissan LEAF as the best selling all-electric car in Europe (LEAF is now heading for 45,000).

Renault zoe has 20% more NEDC range than LEAF, while having 9% smaller battery and only 4% less weight.
1,2*1,9/1.04= 1,25
Does that mean that zoe is 25% more effective?

NEDC range ratings are so unreliable that it’s best to ignore them. Better would be to compare real-world reports of range for the cars.

For example: “The current New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) test cycle has been widely criticised because of the growing disparity between the ‘official’ figures it generates and real-world achievements for the same vehicle.”

source: does their own testing, using a series of tests similar to EPA testing, so those numbers are probably reliable. Unfortunately they only review cars available for sale in the USA, and not all of those.

Renault and Nissan advertise their batteries differently. Nissans 24kWh is the whole thing of which about 21.5kWh are usable as far as I know. Renault advertises just the usable part of Zoes battery which is 22kWh (27ish whole). The newly introduced Zoe with the smaller motor is said to use 23.5kWh (thats the word in the forums at least) and to be more efficient and a little bit lighter. Real world, they have pretty much the same range if you ask me (150ish km which would be some 90ish miles).

Nice! Thanks

NEDC rating of the Leaf is 15 kWh/100 km and Zoe R240 14,6 kWh/100 km.

Still wish they just brought out the Renault Clio Estate in electric, it’s a far more versatile form factor.

They already share a huge amount of parts with the current clio in the Zoe.
