Renault-Nissan Alliance, after the acquisition of Mitsubishi, is now approaching 500,000 cumulative all-electric car sales – more than any other automotive group.
At the end of June 2017, the Alliance counter stands at 481,151 units (some 130,000 more than year ago).
The biggest impact on the number comes from the Nissan LEAF and Renault ZOE.
The number doesn’t include plug-in hybrids – of which, new Alliance partner Mitsubishi has sold over 130,000 copies of the Outlander PHEV.
“Cumulative sales of electric vehicles by the companies also rose significantly to 481,151 units, reaffirming the Alliance’s role as the leading electric car manufacturer for the mass-market segment.
The increase was driven primarily by demand for the Nissan LEAF and the Renault ZOE, which remains the #1 EV sold in Europe, and Mitsubishi’s i-Miev.”
Renault-Nissan Alliance is now aiming to become industry’s number-one automotive sales group for full year 2017.
Total Renault-Nissan Alliance increased in the first six months of 2017 by 7% to 5,268,079 million.
