In 2012, Renault sold 16,853 of its zero-emission vehicles, launching both the Fluence Z.E and Twizy in the year. Since the launch of its Z.E electric range began in October 2011, with the arrival of the Kangoo Z.E. small van, Renault has sold 18,606 zero-emission vehicles cumulatively.
Not as many sales as wanted, but the market is growing!
