Renault-Nissan electric car sales grow 83%

The Renault-Nissan Alliance-the only carmaker yet to produce a wide range of fully electric vehicles-had a record year last year, selling over 8 million vehicles worldwide-representing one in 10 of all new cars sold.

Sales over the year increased around 1 per cent on 2011’s result, with strong growth in emerging markets and the US, compensating for the protracted European slowdown.

The new Nissan LEAFIts range of battery electric vehicles-which includes the Nissan LEAF supermini, Renault Twizy quadricycle, Renault Fluence Z.E saloon and Renault Kangoo Z.E-also had a record year last year with impressive growth of 83.8 per cent compared to 201, as sales of the LEAF grew and Renault launched two new models. In total, these electric models accounted for 43,829 sales last year.

That secures the Alliance a 64 per cent share of the global electric vehicle market (and that’s excluding sales of the two seat Twizy).

Since sales of the Alliance’s battery-electric models began in December 2010 to the end of 2012, it sold 67,723 zero-emission vehicles globally.
