Given its compact size, the Renault Zoe has a generous trunk
Zoe Back On Track Edition

With 1.276 units sold in June, the french market recovered 24% regarding May, with the Renault Zoe back to more acceptable levels (762 units), beating in six months the single-year sales record (2.869 units) made by the Kangoo ZE last year. With half the year passed, the Zoe has now 3.592 units sold, will it get to 10.000 by the end of the year?

Second and third continue on the hands of Kangoo ZE and Nissan Leaf, respectively, with the Renault Twizy climbing to #4 in the YTD ranking, changing positions with the Bolloré Blue Car, that in June sold...0 units.

Down the ranking, we welcome the Volvo V60 Plug-In, selling its first 13 units.

Finally by brands, Renault continues to smash the competition with 80% share, up from 48% last year, while PSA (Peugeot + Citröen) almost disappeared from the map, with this year scoring just 1% share, the Berlingo/Partner Electrique twins can't come soon enough...

  1. The Volt is missing from the list. For May sales you reported 7 Chevy Volts CYTD, there were no more sales?

    1. There was another Chevy Volt sold in June, but the GM car is now #15, passed by the Fisker Karma. Completing the ranking with the bottom positions you have:
      #15 - Chevrolet Volt - 1 unit sold in June/8 units YTD;
      #16 - Neoma Lumeneo - 0/3;
      #17 - Mitsubishi I-Miev - 0/2;
      #18 - Tesla Roadster - 0/1
      Next month i'll post the ranking with all 18 models.

    2. Thanks for the clarification and congratulations on your work. Getting these stats is not easy.
