If we’re talking about electric vehicle sales, then Renault is considered to be the best performing brand in Europe.

In Europe, the EV market represents a 0.61% market share of the overall car market and the Renault ZOE is the top-selling all-electric passenger car, its market share increased by 2.2 points to 19.2% of market share and 18,453 new registrations in 2015. It performed particularly well in France, where it recorded a 48.1% market share and 10 670 units sold, thanks to the “superbonus” incentive set up by the French government in April 2015. More than half of ZOE sales in France benefitted from that incentive.
