Renault Doubled Its EV Sales In January

Renault didn’t waste time getting busy in 2016, as the French company increased electric car sales in January by 104% over a year ago to 1,886.

If we add in the, not so successful, Twizy, total sales reach 1,977 (up 88%).

Over the past three years, January has been one of the slowest months of EV sales for Renault, so looking ahead this could be a big year for the French automaker.

The top selling model in January was the ZOE notching 1,416 sales (up 105%). And because the ZOE was the most popular pure electric car in Europe in 2015, such growth has considerable impact on the overall market.
