The Renault-owned Dacia brand recorded more than 1,100 units sold in July and August, bringing the total to around 4,000 models sold of the new Dacia Spring Electric, according to the InsideEVs website.

It should also be mentioned here that Dacia started pre-orders for the Spring on March 20, and had gathered, according to the latest press reports, nearly 20,000, although the 4,000 figure may only represent cars sent by the company to their owners in September, when deliveries began.

Otherwise, the summer didn’t go very well for Renault’s electric cars, with mixed sales results.

Sales figures:

  • Renault ZOE (passenger and commercial versions) – 4,521 (down 30%) and 41,810 year-to-date (down 23%)
  • Renault Twingo Z.E. (passenger and commercial versions) – 1,087 (new) and 14,367 for the year to date),
  • Renault Kangoo Z.E. – 365 (down 37%) and 7,031 per year to date (up 31%),
  • Renault Master Z.E. – 26 (down 49%) and 228 per year to date (up 44%),
  • The Renault Megane E TECH Electric will only go on sale next year.

So far this year, Renault has sold some 63,436 electric cars (up 5% year-on-year), and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) account for 6.1% of total car sales globally (11.8% in Europe).

The number includes passenger and commercial BEVs, but excludes heavy-duty Twizy (L7e) quadricycles and plug-in hybrids.

The company reports that it sold 6,826 units in July (down 35% year-on-year) and 5,998 in August (down 16% year-on-year).

These are signs that Renault needs to beef up its EV range as soon as possible, as the overall electric market is expanding quite rapidly.

Fully electric cars accounted for 6% of total Renault car sales globally (13.7% in Europe) and 3% of commercial vehicles (3.9% in Europe).
