RENAULT HITS 300,000 MILESTONE IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE SALES ACROSS EUROPE
Renault has sold more than 300,000 electric vehicles across Europe as it continues to demonstrate its leadership in all-electric models. Renault’s Z.E. range now consists of five different models across both passenger and commercial vehicles including the New ZOE and the All-New ZOE van.
The first Renault electric vehicle was launched in 2010, with continuous sales growth year-on-year, with over 100,000 ZOE models sold in France alone. Despite difficult market conditions, a strong first half of 2020 resulted in sales of the New ZOE increasing by almost 50 per cent compared with the same time period last year with 37,540.
Renault continues to give potential buyers and drivers an opportunity to experience living with and driving an electric vehicle. More than 1,000 New ZOEs were recently purchased by vehicle subscription service Onto, who now have 1,300 models available through its highly flexible and hassle-free service. Meanwhile, Leeds City Council recently took delivery of 122 Renault Kangoo Z.E. 33 models of which will be used for a wide range of council services, as well as being made available to local businesses as part of a new EV Trail Scheme.
