Renault Is The #1 EV Manufacturer In Ireland


Renault Group Ireland has topped the podium as the number one Electric Vehicle (EV) brand in Ireland year to date with 845 registrations from combined sales of ZOE, Kangoo Z.E. and ZOE Commercial, beating all rivals. In the overall market, Renault Group finished October in first position in the combined car and van markets with 16.5% market share, and was the top selling LCV brand for the month at 27.8%.

As leaders in electrification, Renault Group benefits from a decade’s experience in the design, manufacturing and sales of electric vehicles. Innovation is in the brand’s DNA, and electric mobility has been a strategic focus for many years.

The New Renault ZOE Z.E. 50 leads Renault’s electric charge as the best-selling electric car in Europe since its launch. Here in Ireland, it’s the most suitable EV for our public charging infrastructure as the only car with standard 22kWh AC charging capability through the Chameleon Charger and, with prices starting at €26,990 (including SEAI grant of €5,000 for private buyers), is the most affordable electric car with 395km range on a single charge.

The expanded Renault Pro+ line-up provides the widest range of all-electric LCV of any manufacturer. Renault’s electric van range will take you wherever you need to go, with generous load capacity, ultra-low running costs, flexible charging, and all the benefits of owning a Renault electric vehicle.

The Renault Kangoo Z.E. is available from €29,445 after incentives, with a Z.E. 33 battery, gives a revolutionary WLTP range of 240km on one charge and offers the same generous load capacity as the equivalent diesel versions, with a range of charging solutions and up to 30km recharge capacity in one hour.

The All-New ZOE Commercial has also joined Renault’s expanding range of electric commercial vehicles, with the same generous 395km WLTP range as the ZOE car. The All-New ZOE Commercial benefits from the same level of features in terms of its battery technology and powertrain, as well as its generously equipped high-quality interior, complemented by Renault’s latest infotainment and safety technologies, starting from €30,117 after €3,800 grant for business buyers.

The New Master Z.E. is available with an increased 1 tonne of payload across an expanded range of body styles, with the ability to travel up to 120km thanks to a 33kWh battery, and is capable of a full charge in as little as six hours. Prices for the New Master Z.E. now start from €62,750 after the €3,800 grant for business buyers.

2020 will also see the addition of a range of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles to the Renault line-up for the first time with All-New Clio Hybrid, All-New Captur Plug-in Hybrid, and New Mégane Sport Tourer Plug-in Hybrid.

Renault Group has announced unmissable 211 offers until 31st January 2021 across its hybrid and electric ranges. Customers can avail of:

€1,000 Green Grant
+ 2.11% APR HP
+ 3 Months’ Deferred Payments
Renault is the only brand offering a €1,000 Green Grant on top of Government grants for EVs. These transparent offers deliver real value and savings to customers.

Renault’s Virtual Showroom is now open for customers to explore new Renault car models from the comfort of home with product experts on hand to demonstrate the complete range via live one-to-one video chat.

Paddy Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Group Ireland:
“This is a great result for Renault. As a pioneer of electrification in Europe, it is great to see that we are now the number one EV manufacturer in Ireland. 845 registrations this year so far is a fantastic achievement for the diverse range of EVs that we can offer to individual and commercial customers. Our new hybrid range launching next week is another key element of Renault’s successful electric journey.”
