Following sales in 2017, the most popular electric car in Europe was the Renault Zoe. AutoUnsversum has defined what models entered the TOP 10.
The European market of electric vehicles last year continued its growth. In comparison with sales of conventional cars with internal combustion engines, the sales of green cars are still insignificant (1-2%), and yet, the demand for environmental transport in Europe is constantly increasing.
In 2017 the locomotive of sales in the Old World was the French Renault Zoe (pictured above). The introduction of its version with a 40-kilowatt battery to the market significantly increased the customer’s interest in the model.
According to the European Alternative Fuels Observatory (EAFO), last year the owners of a small electric hatchback were about 20,000 people.
For comparison: the sales of the Nissan Leaf, which is the second most popular, are 13,000 units.
