Almost one electric vehicle in every three sold in Europe is a Renault


A pioneer in electric vehicles with a range launched in 2011, Renault continues to lead the European electric vehicle market for the fourth consecutive year. Almost one electric vehicle in every three on European roads is a Renault. In 2018, Renault sales of electric vehicles in Europe surged by 36%, accelerating strongly in the second half-year to + 62%. In France, Renault holds a 56.8% share of the electric vehicle market, in both passenger cars and LCVs.



“Today, we are proud to say that over 200,000 customers in Europe have chosen Renault to make electric driving part of their everyday lives! And of course this is just a step on a far longer journey. Our clearly stated aim for the past ten years has been to make electric mobility available to everybody. Groupe Renault’s ambition is for electric vehicles to account for 10% of sales by 2022. To achieve this, it will build on the eight electric vehicles that will make up the range by this date,” says Gilles Normand, Senior Vice President, Electric Vehicles, Group Renault.


A complete, versatile range


The reasons for this success? The most complete, versatile electric range on the market, made up of ZOE, Kangoo Z.E., Master Z.E. and the Twizy quadricycle.



The range receives continuous upgrades with, for example, increased range, more powerful motors or faster charging. It is built around two best-sellers: the city car ZOE and the Kangoo Z.E. van. The Renault ZOE remains the undisputed standard-setter on the market with 40,000 registrations last year, of which 18,000 in France. Building on six years of market success, it continues to appeal to buyers with an attractive design and a real range of 186 miles*.


Kangoo Z.E. is Europe's undisputed leader in electric LCV sales, with market share of 51.5% in 2018.
