On the back of successful sales, Renault has become the continent’s best performing brand for electric vehicles.
Last year, it shifted a total of 23,086 electric vehicles, an impressive 49 per cent increase over 2014. Those figures account for a 23.6 per cent market share in the segment.
In fact, one of five electric cars sold in Europe last year were zero emissions vehicles from the French automaker.
The Renault ZOE became the best-selling all-electric passenger car in 2015, recording 18,453 registrations, representing a 19.2 per cent market share.
In France, its 10,670 sales account for nearly half (48.1 percent) of the EV market share. The French government’s latest electric vehicle incentives is one of the driving factors behind the increased sales.
