The time had come in February 2020. The Renault ZOE broke the magical limit of 30,000 units sold in Germany.
From the market launch in 2013 to the end of February 2020, a total of 30,400 Renault ZOE were registered in Germany, of which around 1,350 were in February alone. It was the second strongest ZOE sales month ever. The trend seems to continue for the rest of the year.
As early as the end of 2019, we could already see that the Renault ZOE was again Germany’s best-selling electric car in 2019. In mid-January Renault then announced that “The 2020s will be the decade of electromobility” . The French automobile manufacturer underlines this with a sales record in January 2020. With 1,800 new registrations in January alone for the ZOE, Renault set a new record .
Renault is a pioneer when it comes to electric vehicles, as was known in the run-up to the Geneva Motor Show – which unfortunately failed. Renault wanted to bring four innovations to Geneva. Among other things, the Morphoz study, which provides an outlook on the brand’s future electric vehicles . The purely electric Twingo ZE and the Mégane E-TECH with plug-in hybrid drive, on the other hand, appear more suited for the mass market.
Dacia did the world premiere for the brand’s first electric car. Renault announced in mid-January that the introduction of the Twingo ZE would usher in a new era in its own electric offensive. The Twingo ZE is one of eight purely electric and twelve electrified model innovations that the brand will introduce by 2022. To shorten the release time, the Twingo ZE uses technologies from ZOE. It will be interesting to see whether this will also become a bestseller, like the big sister ZOE.
