(REPOST: Inside EVs)
Through the end of October, cumulative sales of electric cars from Renault (since 2011) have crossed 120,000 units (excluding the LSV Twizy). October was another month of significant growth.
In total, 2,967 electric Renaults were sold last month, which is 46% more than one year ago.
That number included more than 2,300 Renault ZOEs, (up nearly 48%) and around 650 Kangoo ZEs.
Indeed, the new Kangoo Z.E., with a 33 kWh battery and 270 km (168 miles) of NEDC range or ~200 km (124 miles) real-world range, seems to be attracting a lot more buyers.
The average sales level of the Kangoo Z.E. in 2016 hovered around 330 units per month, and had more recently fallen to about 260 units per month in the first half of this year. Now, those sales are now back on the rise with the new larger battery version.
Total sales (all-time) of Kangoo Z.E. stand at around 28,500 units.
Overall, the Renault ZOE represents 1.4% of total passenger car sales from Renault worldwide so far this year (available only in Europe).
