France is mainly focused on support for all-electric cars, which at 13,534 (passenger car registrations) so far this year is hitting 1% market share.

But plug-in hybrids are also improving too, reaching a record 3,716 sold in the past 10 months. That's more than half of all the 6,500 PHEVs sold over the past few years.

This year, sales already exceed the full-year 2014 result by 130%.

The most popular models this year are Volkswagen Golf GTE and Audi A3 Sportback e-tron, with Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in third.
