The French plug-in passenger electric vehicle market broke all of its previous records in January, with all-electric models jumping 258% to 10,952 units and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles surging 238% to 3,813 registrations. Both powertrains beat their own previous bests, adding to a record 14,765 plug-in vehicle registrations.

This brilliant start of the year, added to a falling overall market (-13% year over year), pulled the 2020 plug-in vehicle (PEV) share to an amazing 11% share (8.2% for full-electrics alone). That’s a big boost from the 2.7% of the same month last year, and with hybrid vehicles also jumping (9% share last month versus 5% in January 2019), 20% of the overall market is already electrified, which is making the pure fossil fuel share dive, and diesel in particular is now at a decades-low 32%.

Good to see the ZOE representing on home turf.

Hopefully this will be maintained - that’s going to at least double ZOE production if that’s the case.

Can't imagine where they charge them all, if people's experience trying to charge in France is anything to go by. :)

How much of this is EV cars hold back from last year so as to minimise the CO2 fines this year? Feb and March sales for the Zoe and 208ev will be very revealing.
