If we’re talking about electric vehicle sales, then Renault is considered to be the best performing brand in Europe. With a market share of 23.6 percent where if we include Twizy then it goes up to 25.2 percent. Renault Z.E. vehicle registered a sale of 23,086 units in 2015 in Europe, which means one out of 5 electric cars. The European full-electric vehicle market stands at 97,687 units, and if this is compared to 2014 it is up by 47.8 percent.

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.

Renault Kangoo Z.E. is the best-selling electric LCV in Europe with 4,325 units sold in 2015, accounting for 42.6% of the full-electric LCV market. Renault has sold the most EVs between 2010 -the year the first EV was launched in Europe, and 2015, with a record of 62,228 units sold. Since its launch, 16,331 units of Renault Twizy were sold.
