As expected, France managed to set new record in late 2019 - as it turns out, with a significant contribution from PHEVs
The total number of first registrations amounted to 7,124 (up 54% year-over-year)! Passenger plug-in cars took near-record 3.4% share out of overall sales volume.
Interestingly, plug-in hybrids are now growing really fast:
- Passenger BEVs: 4,382 registrations (up 53%)
- Passenger PHEVs: 2,051 registrations (new record) (up 119%)
- Light commercial BEVs: 691 registrations (down 17%)
- Total: 7,124 (up 54%)
So far this year, more than 55,400 plug-ins were registered (36% more than a year ago).
