Renault ZOE

Plug-in electric car sales in France increased last month significantly compared to previous years.

In total, some 2,907 plug-in were registered:

  • passenger BEVs - 1,899 (up 74%)
  • passenger PHEVs - 553 (up 145%)
  • commercial BEVs - 455 (up 45%)
Passenger EVs market share stands at nearly 1.5% (1.13% for BEVs). LCVs, are at nearly 1.4%.

The top selling model in France is the Renault ZOE with 1,182 registrations (up 61% year-over-year and 62% of all passenger BEVs)!

It seems that the 30 kWh Nissan LEAF helped to bump sales, as 286 were registered, which is one of the best results ever.

Also of interest, the first eight registrations of Citroën E-Mehari were logged.
