Earlier this year, Renault upgraded the Zoe with a more powerful electric motor and the vehicle has continued to sell well in France and a few other European markets.
Renault says that it posted “38% growth in electric vehicle sales in Europe, with a 44% increase in ZOE registrations and a 23.8% market share in 2017.”
Other EVs should soon join the Zoe in the lineup. The Renault, Nissan & Mitsubishi alliance announced that it will launch 12 new all-electric vehicles within the next 5 years.
They are now working on the supply chain and production facilities to produce those vehicles.
Introduce a new Alliance electric platform in Douai to create a second Renault electric vehicle production site;
Double ZOE production capacity and the launch of a new ZOE at Flins, the only ZOE production site in the world;
Triple electric motor production capacities at Cleon and introduce a new generation electric motor from 2021.
Invest in Maubeuge for the production of the next generation of the Kangoo family, including the electric utility vehicle Kangoo Z.E.
