New passenger car registrations in France increased in November by nearly 10% year-over-year to 133,961. This improved the year-to-date result to 1.37 million, but it’s still almost 9% less than a year ago.
Meanwhile, plug-in electric cars slightly outpaced the general market’s growth, once again expanding their share.
According to L’Avere-France, last month some 34,912 new plug-in vehicles were registered in France (up 16% year-over-year), including 32,614 passenger plug-in cars (up 14%), which represents 24.3% of the market (vs. 23.4% a year ago).
The most important thing for us is that passenger all-electric car sales increased by almost 24% and over 20,000 units, taking over 15% of the market.
Light commercial all-electric vehicles also are doing great with the third consecutive monthly record (2,265 units, up 65% year-over-year).
New plug-in vehicle registrations:
- Passenger BEVs: 20,274 (up 23.5%) at 15.1% market share
- Passenger PHEVs: 12,340 (up 1.5%) at 9.2% market share
- Light commercial BEVs: 2,265 (up 65%) at 7.8% market share
- Light commercial PHEVs: 33 (down 27%)
- Total plug-ins: 34,912 (up 16%)

*some data on the charts are estimated
The most registered electric models in November were the Tesla Model Y (2,891) and the Tesla Model 3 (2,809). Those results were so good that not only was no other plug-in model even close, but the Tesla duo managed to take 10th and 11th position overall.
The best of the rest in France happens to be the Dacia Spring (1,954), followed by the all-new Renault Megane E-Tech (1,783).
