Renault ZOE leads France to best January ever
France began the new year with strong growth of plug-in electric car sales. The number of plug-in (passenger and commercial) registrations increased to 4,724, which is almost 62% more than a year ago.
One of the reasons for higher sales is reportedly higher availability of electric cars.
- Passenger BEVs: 3,059 registrations (up 138%) at 2% market share
- Passenger PHEVs: 1,151 registrations (up 7%) at 0.7% market share
- Light commercial BEVs: 514 registrations (down 8%)
- Total: 4,724
