One of the most interesting things that is happening in France is the surge of the Dacia Spring, which after the second-place finish in October, in November it is the most popular EV on the market and the 6th most popular car overall.
Dacia is part of the Renault Group so it might be treated like a home EV in the country (despite production in China), but more importantly, it's the least expensive electric model.
