Since the opening of pre-orders last March, the Dacia Spring Electric has positioned itself as a real challenger on the French market, so far dominated by Renault Zoe and Model 3. Across Europe, Tesla’s flagship is selling better than its rivals, but in France, competition is visibly tougher. A finding supported by sales figures for November, which places the Dacia Spring well ahead of other models.

We count as well 2895 registrations over the last month for the newcomer. The Renault Zoé is second with 2,189 units sold, while the Tesla Model 3 is good third with 1,500 sales. Finally, the Peugeot e-208 and 308 Hybrid finished the march with respectively 1,374 and 1,129 deliveries. Here is the full ranking:

  1. Dacia Spring : 2895 registrations
  2. Renault ZOE: 2189 registrations
  3. Tesla Model 3: 1500 registrations
  4. Peugeot e-208: 1374 registrations
  5. Peugeot 308 Hybrid: 1229 registrations

The electric car market is doing very well in France

On the strength of their reputation, the French still buy the vast majority of French vehicles. It should also be noted that this classification concerns all “plug-in” cars, which therefore also includes hybrid models. And the finding is clear. While thermal models continue to be more popular, at this rate, electric models will sooner or later take their place, maybe sooner than you think.

Indeed, in November, 37% of cars sold were gasoline. They represented 42% of sales last year, at the same time. Diesel vehicles are also declining, from 30% to 19% between 2020 and 2021. Conversely, sales of electric vehicles have exploded in a year, recording an increase of 71%. A trend that can be attributed, among other things, to the imminent arrival of the ecological penalty, voted by the government at the end of 2020.
