Renault sold more than 5,000 electric cars for a third consecutive month.
In the last full month before the unveiling of the new ZOE, Renault again significantly increased EV sales.
Total sales (excluding Twizy) amounted around 5,071 in May (up 58% year-over-year) and 24,024 YTD (up 41%):
- Renault ZOE – 4,315 (up 61%) and 20,338 YTD (up 43%)
- Renault Kangoo Z.E. – 716 (up 36%) and 3,532 YTD (up 27%)
- Renault Master Z.E. – 40 (up 1,233%) and 154 YTD (up 1,611%)
BEVs account for close to 2.5% of all cars sold by Renault globally and 4.2% in Europe (where almost all Renault EVs are sold).
It will be interesting to see how the new ZOE affects sales of the outgoing generation (a lot depends on the number of orders taken before unveiling).
