|2013 Renault Zoe seen from behind|
With 1.005 units sold in February, the french market recovered to the usual levels of last year, with the Renault Zoe being responsible for almost half of it, meaning that for the first time the french supermini is on top of the sales chart, presumably the first of many months there...
Down to #2 in February but still ahead in the YTD sales, the 288 February sales kept the Kangoo ZE way ahead of the Nissan Leaf, in #3, with just 63 cars sold in that same month.
Down the ranking, notice the Twizy down three positions to #5 and the french cousins of the Mitsu I-Miev also down, respectively 4 (Peugeot iOn) and 5 positions (Citröen C-Zero), and on the upswing we find the Smart Fortwo ED, 4th in February and 6th YTD, versus a discrete #11 in 2012.
Finally by brands, Renault is smashing the competition with 75% share, up from 48% last year, while PSA (Peugeot + Citröen) almost disappeared from the map, with this year scoring just 3% share instead of the 24% from '12...
