Default Q1 2017: Renault Group becomes the 2nd largest automaker in the world

Quote:
The Renault Group recently released its sales and financial data for the first quarter of 2017 and it has emerged that the Renault Group has become the second largest automobile manufacturer in the world after Toyota. Yes, it is slightly difficult to comprehend but the sales of the Renault Group have surged ahead of the Volkswagen Group, at least for the period of January-March 2017. The Renault Group sold 26, 58,019 vehicles in Jan-Mar 2017 coming in second after Toyota, who sold 27,07,251 units while the Volkswagen Group sold 24,95,100 units in the same period.

Interestingly, the Volkswagen Group sold more units than the Renault Group for the month of March in particular. The VW Group sold 9, 90,900 units while the 9, 85,530 units in March 2017. If we look at the percentage growth, it is the Renault Group which has shown maximum growth.

Holy camoly, who would've thought . Always knew them as a strong no.4, but no.2 is just incredible . What's more, Renault is closer to no.1 Toyota than it is to no.3 VW.

VW is the only one on the list to have reported a YOY sales decline, and I'll put it down to the emissions scandal. It's cost them dearly in terms of reputation, $$$ and management bandwidth.

No doubt regarding that, emission scandal has hit VW very hard. But, VW has taken the 2nd spot in March 2017 sales. It would be interesting to see the next quarter figures and we will get a clear picture

Renault Groupe got really big after their alliance with Nissan.
Secondly, we assume VW's decline is due to emission scandal but in Mar'17 they have sold more than Renault. So, is VW still going strong ? Incredible, if its so.

Here is more for Renault- Nissan alliance to cheer,

Who Is In The World's Leading EV Maker? Tesla ?.... No , it is the duo again - the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

In the first quarter of 2017, the Renault-Nissan Alliance moved nearly 37,000 electric vehicles, per data supplied by the automakers. That is some 12,000 units, or nearly 50%, more than the 25,000 electric vehicles Tesla said were shipped by the company in the first quarter.
Quote:
An even bigger surprise: Nissan’s aging Leaf outsold Tesla’s likewise long-in-the-tooth Model S. The Leaf remained the world’s best-selling electric vehicle in the first quarter. It is hardly a secret that the Leaf is to be replaced soon by a completely new model with more range, a pleasing design, and with the semi-autonomous ProPilot package Nissan introduced with its Serena minivan last year. Considering the model change, one would expect Leaf sales to go down, but just the opposite is true. Last March, the outgoing Leaf even outsold Tesla’s Model X in Norway, the Shangri-La of electric cars
Quote:
the top-selling cars in the world’s second-largest (after China) electric car market Europe are all from the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Both in March, and in the first quarter of 2017, the best-selling EV in Europe was Renault’s new Zoe, followed by the Leaf, and then by Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV
