Renault sees rise in sale of Zoe electric vehicles

By Our Reporter

French carmaker Renault on Monday reported a 34.9% drop in worldwide vehicle sales in the first half of the year.

This was due to the impact from the new coronavirus outbreak, it said.

However, sales of its ZOE electric model were up by nearly 50%.

Renault said the overall decline was mainly due to its high exposure to countries that have imposed strict lockdowns.

It also said it had seen some signs of recovery in June.
