Renault ZOE in short time becomes best selling car in UK

For the first time, an electric hatchback is the fastest-selling used car in UK.

The 2016 Renault Zoe electric hatchback was the fastest-selling used car in Britain during July – the first time an electric car has topped the charts.

According to used car marketplace Auto Trader, the little battery-powered Renault took an average of just 18 days to leave used car dealers’ forecourts – faster than anything else on the market. – noted by insideevs

And the Zoe wasn’t the only alternatively fuelled vehicle (AFV) to hit the high notes. London’s most popular used car was the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid.

But despite the evident popularity of high-tech, low-emission vehicles, petrol and diesel power still appears to be at the tops. The Zoe’s closest rival was the diesel-powered Peugeot 308 hatchback from 2013. In top 10 included the 2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, 2015 Audi S3 and the diesel versions of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
