Thanks to AAA-Data/PFA figures compiled by Avere, we learn that last month there were 19,657 registrations of 100% electric private vehicles. This represents a market share of 17.3% and above all an increase of 59.8%. This segment outperformed the overall market. As for electric utility vehicles, it is still very low in volume with 1,272 registrations and 6% market share.
For passenger cars, the leader is again the Tesla Model Y with 3,051 units. The Model 3 older version was strongly delivered with 2,258 units. Registrations could start to rise again for the Tesla Model 3 following its aesthetic renewal. The Peugeot e-208 is holding up well and this time ahead of the Fiat 500e (1,915 and 1,609 registrations respectively). The one which is often first in the monthly ranking is this time 6th behind the MG 4. Indeed, the Dacia Spring sells “only” 1,379 units compared to 1,598 for the MG 4.
The MG may be living in recent hours with an electrical bonus of €5,000 if we are to believe Minister Pannier-Runacher. This will be temporary while MG’s European production plant is operational. Big loss for the Renault Megane E-Tech which fell by 48% to 7,91 units. Renault should slightly review its pricing policy to put the Megane back in the race against the Model 3 and MG.
Since January 2023, the Tesla Model Y has been blowing everyone away when it comes to electric vehicles in France.
- Tesla Model Y: 22,423 units
- Dacia Spring: 18,589 units
- Peugeot e-208: 15,150 units
- Fiat 500e: 15,145 units
- Tesla Model 3: 11,930 units
- Renault Megane E-Tech: 11,277 units
- MG 4: 10,254 units
Our opinion, by leblogauto.com
Who can stop the ogre Tesla? The American manufacturer has tightened its prices and even if the Model Y only benefits from the €5,000 electric bonus if you take it without an option, in white or black (editor’s note: standard paints), it is increasingly attractive with its performance, its equipment, but also, it must be admitted, the image of Tesla. On the other hand, we feel that competitors are having difficulty positioning themselves. Some have announced that they do not want a price war and yet it will have to be done.
Note that with 4,286 units, the Renault Zoé is pitiful. The former fallen queen continues to die and impatiently awaits the succession of R5. Renault should not miss out on this one.
