Milsetone for Renault Zoe
April 22, 2016
The 50,000th Renault Zoe has rolled off the production line at its specialist plant at Flins in France and the milestone vehicle was sold to Sylvie, a French citizen from Saint Cloud, Paris.
Guillaume Berthier, Electric Car Sales and Marketing Director, presented Sylvie with the keys to her Zoe at the Flins plant near Paris, the only Zoe site for global distribution. It was Sylvie’s children who encouraged her to choose a Zoe and she intends to use it every day.
With 50,000 people now proud owners of the Zoe, Renault has found that 98 per centof customers are satisfied with their 100 per cent electric-in-use vehicle.
Since 2013, Renault has been the only carmaker to have a complete all-electric vehicle range with Twizy, Zoe and Kangoo Z.E. Since then, the EV market has grown rapidly, expanding by 48 per cent worldwide in 2015.
In the UK, 4,058 Zoes have been sold since launch, with sales up in 2015 by 102 per cent compared to 2014. Charging a Zoe couldn’t be easier thanks to the continuing rollout of new infrastructure. Today, more than 60,000 charge points are available to the public in Europe.
