Renault has topped the 200,000 mark for sales of electric vehicles in Europe. At the same time, it has crossed a milestone in France with 100,000 vehicles registered. This double achievement underlines Renault’s position as leader in the European electric vehicle market, with steady growth in sales.
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 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.
In June 2018, Groupe Renault announced plans to invest over one billion euros in France. By 2022, the Group plans to:
- Introduce a new Alliance electric platform at Douai to create a second Renault electric vehicle production site
- Double Renault ZOE production capacity and launch new ZOE at Flins, the only ZOE production site in the world
- Triple electric motor production capacities at Cleon and introduce a new-generation electric motor from 2021
- Invest in Maubeuge for the production of the next generation of the Kangoo family, including the electric LCV Kangoo Z.E.
