The 50,000th Renault ZOE has rolled off the production line at Renault’s specialist plant at Flins. The milestone vehicle was sold to French citizen, Sylvie, who was presented the keys to her ZOE by the Electric Car Sales and Marketing Director, Guillaume Berthier. It was Sylvie’s children who encouraged her to choose a ZOE and she intends to use it every day. With 50,000 people now proud owners of the ZOE, Renault has found that 98% of those are satisfied with their 100% electric-in-use vehicle.
Since 2013, Renault has been the only car manufacturer to offer a complete all-electric vehicle range with Twizy, ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. Since then, the EV market has grown rapidly, expanding by 48% worldwide in 2015. In total, 18,500 ZOE vehicles were sold last year for a market share of 20% in Europe.In the UK, 4,058 ZOE’s have been sold since launch, with sales up in 2015 by 102% compared to 2014.
Most recently, the ZOE was voted second best vehicle overall in the Auto Express Power survey, and has also been crowned What Car?’s ‘Best Electric Car under £20,00’ for three years running.
Charging a ZOE couldn’t be simpler thanks to the on-going rollout of new infrastructure. Today, more than 60,000 charge points are available to the public across Europe.
