Five years since the launch of its first EV, Renault has handed over the keys to its 100,000th electric customer. The milestone vehicle is a Renault ZOE, sold to an Oslo gentleman, who will receive five years of free recharging as a bonus.
Renault is Europe’s leading EV-seller, with a 27% market share. In the first half of 2016, Renault sold over 15,000 EVs (excluding the Twizy), an increase of 32% compared to 2015. Its main markets are France, Norway, the UK, and Germany.
The company’s EV range consists of the compact ZOE, the Kangoo Z.E. commercial van, the whimsical Twizy two-seater (and its utility version, the Twizy Cargo), and a sedan called the RSM SM3 Z.E. that’s sold in Korea.
“Every year there are more customers for electric cars, and Renault is making a major contribution to this with its constant innovation and dedication to developing infrastructure,” said Eric Feunteun, Director of Renault’s Electric Vehicle Division. “Our customer satisfaction, which stands at 98% for the ZOE, encourages us to keep pushing onwards.”
