The Nissan LEAF may have celebrated its 10 year anniversary last week with over 500,000 units sold worldwide to date but it’s the Renault ZOE instead who’s leading the electric vehicle sales chart in Europe this year.
So far, the company has sold 95,985 units of its electric vehicles between November 2019 and November 2020. Compared to the year before, this figure represents an 80% increase in new vehicle registrations.
Renault’s electric vehicle range includes the ZOE, the Kangoo Z.E., the Twizzy, and the Master Z.E. van. Among them, the ZOE remains the best-selling electric passenger car in Europe.
More than 84,000 ZOEs have been sold since January 2020 – almost double compared to 2019 – making the ZOE the leading electric car in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Since its launch in 2012, Renault has shipped 268,000 units of the ZOE in Europe.
In the UK, the ZOE is the best-selling electric vehicle in its segment, with sales increasing by a whopping 145% compared to 2019. This ranks Renault in 3rd spot in the UK EV market with over 6,600 units sold year-to-date to end November 2020.
Soon, Renault will be starting a new chapter for its electric vehicle range with a production version of the Mégane eVision. Based on the Alliance CMF-EV platform, it will be Renault’s answer for an electric vehicle in C-segment.
