Zapping The Blogauto Cupra Formentor VZ5 test on snow
According to figures from AVERE France (we welcome the appointment of Clément Molizon as the new General Delegate of Avere-France NDLA) there were, in June 2022, 22,971 electric vehicles registered. Of these, there are 21,888 private vehicles with 64% of private buyers. For private vehicles, this represents an increase of 4.7% compared to June 2021. Electric commercial vehicles are only 1,083 to have been registered, a decrease of 12.6%.
The e-208 takes the lead of the semester
In June 2022, the Peugeot e-208 won the timpani with 2,860 units. The Peugeot is ahead of the Renault Twingo with 2,158 registrations and the Renault Zoe with 2,048 registrations. Tesla made a big Model Y delivery and the American SUV was put on the road at the height of 1,964 units. For Renault we find the new model of the Megane E-Tech with 1,854 units. Three models in the Top 5, well done Renault.
Rounding out the top 10 are the Fiat 500 (1843 units), the Dacia Spring (1325 u), the Tesla Model 3 (1047 u), the Hyundai Kona (618 u) and the Citroën e-C4 (568 u) . We will once again notice the absence of VW in the Top 10 despite the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 etc. (none is in the TOP100 France over the semester). Since the start of 2022, there have been close to 100,000 registered electric vehicles: 99,635 including passenger cars and LCVs. This remains a very strong increase with +27.6% compared to the first six months of 2021.
It remains to be seen whether these “+4.7%” on PV result from a delivery problem with a difficult supply on chips for example, or if it is more structural with a market which is reaching saturation point. The next few months should guide us. The €6,000 bonus for EVs under €45,000 is maintained by the State until the end of the year. This should open up buying opportunities for those who stayed below €45k.
TOP private sales in 2022
Since the start of 2022, the e-208 and the Spring have been vying for the top spot in sales. The 500 is not very far away while the Zoe suffers from certain delivery difficulties. The Model 3 has experienced months “without delivery” and finds itself followed by the Twingo.

The electricity market in France slowed down in June, with +4.7% on the private market and even a drop of -12.6% on the light electric utility market. Does this bode well for an underlying trend with sales that will reach a maximum? Until 2035 and the possible ban on thermal vehicles, there will undoubtedly be “glass ceilings” to be broken for the EV.
