Plug-in car sales hit new record in June 2021 – .


While the overall passenger car market in France fell 15% year-on-year in June to 119,509, the plug-in segment hit a new all-time monthly high.

In total, some 38 708 new plugins were registered last month (up 71% year-on-year), which is slightly higher than the previous record recorded in December 2020.

Passenger plug-ins (37,408) accounted for approximately 18,8% of the automotive market, which almost matches December’s record of nearly 19.3%. This means that almost one in five new passenger cars is a plug-in.

Another thing is that all-electric cars were significantly above plug-in hybrids:

  • Passenger EVs: 20 899 – up from 52% to 10.5% market share
  • PHEV passagers: 16 509 – market share up from 127% to 8.3%
  • Light commercial BEVs: 1 239 – market share down from 22% to 2.6%
  • Light commercial PHEVs: 61
  • Total name of plug-ins: 38 708 – up 71%

So far this year, the plug-in segment has grown 117% year-over-year to over 150,000.

  • Passenger EVs: 72 511 – up 61%
  • Passenger and light utility PHEVs: 72 259 – up 256%
