Hardware News It’s historic, electric cars have exceeded diesels in France!
It is a great revolution for the automotive world in France. For the first time, electric cars have sold better than their diesel sisters. A double -sided change that we are going to detail.
Electric cars exceed diesel cars!
It had to happen at one time, electric cars are no longer behind diesel vehicles. It is historic and it shows that the French car fleet is in full metamorphosis. Especially in France We are part of the irreducible to hang on to diesel.
This news comes straight from the automotive data analyst, NGC Data. In September in particular, 22,481 electric cars were registered in France. In comparison, 20,136 diesel cars were registered. A 10 % superiority which should in the future continue to grow.
On the other hand, it must be understood that these are registrations and not vehicles in circulation. This data is obviously in favor of diesel. But having more circulation of electric cars shows that the French car fleet undergoes a beneficial change.
The electric car is increasingly popular
During the month of September, we see a 16% increase in electric cars sales. A data that increases compared to the 13% per year. This increase is notably due to the excellent sales of the Renault Megane E-Tech. The model has become extremely popular. It alone represents 13% of electricity sales in France on the month of September alone.
With electrification as the ranges of cars progressed, the goal is to have a mainly electric car fleet by 2030. After this date, the sale of new combustion vehicles will be prohibited in Europe. A strong measure that pushes manufacturers to invest quickly in the evolution of their vehicles.
The sector that has a lot of trouble with electricity is inexpensive electric cars. For the moment, we can’t find No car in the 10,000 euros, Capable of riding on a highway, even adding the ecological bonus. Even the Dacia Spring finds itself at more than 15,000 euros with the help of the state.
Manufacturers work on a cheaper car capable of doing everything. Renault does it with its future R5, Or even the Dacia Spring, which is part of the group. Citroën also tables an ultra -affordable electric car. Especially with The Citroën Friend, the French manufacturer has hit hard. But it is a vehicle without a license that should not go to the highway.
So we only find electric cars in our streets in the coming months?
It’s not as simple as that. In reality, Provision problems with electronic components mean that groups like Renault have trouble making their electric cars. Sales are therefore mathematically bricked.
What should also slow down sales of electric cars is the drop in ecological bonus in January 2023. The government has already announced a change. It could go from 6,000 euros to 5,000 euros. Knowing that it was initially 7,000 euros. This bonus could even
Limit to vehicles made in France
or in Europe. The Dacia Spring would find itself full pot! At 19,800 euros anyway.
Despite these concerns, there is little chance that diesel cars will resume growth. Electric cars will undoubtedly remain above diesel.
