by ace

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a very negative impact on the economy. For example, in the automotive segment, sales have dropped dramatically and it is only now beginning to feel some recovery. Through a statement, the Renault Group has now revealed that the Renault Zoe has broken a record for orders and sales in Europe.

More than 11,000 Renault ZOE were ordered in June in Europe.

The (new) Renault Zoe is a 100% electric car and offers 390 km of autonomy according to the WLTP cycle. The Zoe comes with a R135 electric motor with 100 kW of power, which is equivalent to about 135 horsepower, and a torque of 245 Nm. From 0 to 100 the new Zoe needs only 10 seconds and is limited to 140 km / h .

In May 2020, with the return of commercial activity in most European countries, the Renault Group recorded an increase in sales of the electric ZOE of 56%, when compared to the same month of 2019. The month of June came to confirm and reinforce this trend with a new record: the Renault Group received 11 158 new orders for the ZOE in Europe.
