Renault More Than Doubled BEV Sales In October 2020

New Renault Twingo Z.E. appeared in the sales stats for the very first time.

Renault posted outstanding sales results for its all-electric cars in October, once again in the five-digits.

The total all-electric car sales amounted to 11,526 (up 144% year-over-year), which is the third-best result ever.

In Europe, on which falls 11,205 sales, BEVs stand for 10.9% of the total Renault volume (12.5% in the case of passenger cars).

The year-to-date result is close to 84,250 (up 71% year-over-year). That’s about 5.9% of the global volume for the brand (9.7% in Europe and 11.1% in the case of passenger cars).

Models

Renault’s pillar is the ZOE model, which was responsible for 87% of total BEV sales in October and 90% so far this year. ZOE sales are stable at around 10,000 in recent months (excluding August).

The year-to-date result almost reached 76,000, so there is a chance to reach 100,000 in 2020, but it would require at least 12,000 a month in the final two months.

The new model in the lineup from October is the Renault Twingo Z.E. – smaller than the ZOE but with high sales potential.

Data does not include plug-in hybrids or the Renault Twizy – heavy quadricycles (L7e).

Additionally, Renault Samsung Motors sold 27 SM3 Z.E. in South Korea (688 YTD).
