Plug-In EV Market Share In France Crosses A Record 2% In September!
France’s plug-in vehicle market share hit a new record in September, crossing the 2% mark for the first time (2.1%). About 1 in every 48 new light vehicles purchased in the country came with a plug.
And as we recently reported, there a lot more public charging locations to plug into, as France also passed 20,000 charging stations (details) during the month.
New registrations of plug-in passenger vehicles hit 3,556 units (+560 commercial BEVs), which isn’t a new net record (4,521 were sold in June, good for a 1.73% market share), but the fast growth year-over-year translates to a rapidly expanding market share.
- Passenger BEVs: 2,432 registrations (up 37.8%) at ≈1.4% market share (PC)
- Passenger PHEVs: 1,124 registrations (up 44%) at ≈0.6% market share (PC)
- Light commercial BEVs: 560 registrations (up 12%)
Once again, the Renault ZOE keeps all other plug-ins well in its rear view mirror, holding down more than half of the entire BEV market share (1,267 and 52% passenger BEVs in September).
