From INSIDEEVs| January 18 , 2019

December 2018 was an exceptionally strong month for plug-in electric car sales in France. The number of plug-in (passenger and commercial) registrations increased some 35% year-over-year to an all-time high of 6,547!

The main force of growth is all-electric vehicles, as the plug-in hybrids are in retreat. In total, some 5,640 passenger plug-ins registered in December, translated into an all-time record market share of 3.4%!

  • Passenger BEVs: 4,434 registrations (up 63%) at 2.7% market share

  • Passenger PHEVs: 1,206 registrations (down 19%) at 0.7% market share

  • Light commercial BEVs: 907 registrations (up 48%)

  • Total: 6,547
