sales up in the first half of 2021, but …

The Renault group announces that it has sold 1,422,563 vehicles worldwide in the first half of 2021. This figure is up compared to 2020 but down compared to 2019.

The first half of the year has barely ended when the time has already come to take stock for Renault. All brands combined, the French group indeed announces that it has sold 1,422,563 vehicles worldwide over the first six months of 2021.

Sales down compared to 2019

A figure up 18.7% compared to the same period of 2020. But in a context still disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, this is 24.2% less than in the first half of 2019.

Renault progress, E-Tech s’implant

Compared to last year, particularly impacted by the health crisis, the Renault brand recorded an increase of 18.5% with 901,466 vehicles sold worldwide. Europe is logically the first diamond market with 532,161 vehicles sold (+ 13.2%). The new electrified E-Tech range is particularly attractive since it already represents more than one in five sales for the brand on the markets of the Old Continent (91,869 vehicles, or + 149%).

Dacia carried by the new Sandero

Driven by the success of the new Sandero, the best-selling vehicle in Europe to private customers, the Dacia brand recorded growth of 24.5% with 262,814 vehicles sold.

Launched last spring, the Spring, the first electric model from the Romanian manufacturer, for its part got off to a good start. More than 15,000 orders have been recorded. Deliveries will begin this fall.

Lada and Alpine progress, Renault Samsung Motors fall

With 215,448 vehicles delivered (+ 41.1%), Lada also performed well. The brand is mainly established in Russia (200,219 vehicles sold, + 51%). It has also strengthened its leading position there with 23% market share, its best result over the last ten years.

Same story at Alpine: + 43.2% increase and 1,001 cars sold. However, the results are less encouraging for Renault Samsung Motors (-49.4% and 26,908 vehicles).

France, the Renault group’s leading market

Finally, on the market side, it is logically France which is the group’s main outlet. 287,602 vehicles were sold locally (-2.5%). Russia follows with 270,285 models (+ 0.8%) and Germany with 87,029 units (-0.4%).
