Electric Vehicle Sales Increase 55% In France

January 13th, 2014 by  


Originally published on EV Obsession.

As the title says, sales of electric vehicles rose 55% in 2013. They now total 8,779. In terms of total electric vehicles solar, France is the European leader. Though, in terms of per capita sales or EV sales as a percentage of all car sales, Norway is far and away the leader in Europe and around the world.

Here are some more details on the EV sales in France in 2013, and compared to 2012 (via Green Car Congress):

Sales of EVs in France rose 55% to 8,779 units in 2013, up from 5,663 the year before. The Renault Zoe took the top spot with 5,511 registrations or 62.8% of the market.

The Nissan Leaf with second, 1,438 registrations, followed by the Bolloré Bluecar with 658 registrations.

France EV sales

5,175 electric vehicle vans were registered in France in 2013, with sales increasing 42% over 3,651 registrations recorded in 2012.

A total of 46,785 hybrid vehicles, including 32,799 hybrid gasoline and diesel 13,986 hybrids were registered in France in 2013. Sales increased 60% compared to 29,120 registrations recorded in 2012.

Note that the Renault is a French company, which certainly helps its sales in France. However, the Renault Zoe is also obviously a good competitor against the Nissan Leaf, which dominates electric vehicle sales globally.
