BEVs step up 

The French PEV passenger car market registered 4,988 registrations in November (+71% YoY), with all-electric models jumping (+119%), thanks to the highest growth rate in over 2 years, while plug-in hybrids recovered from the post-NEDC hangover (+11%).

This recent pick up pulled the 2018 PEV share to a record 2%, with BEVs alone having 1.4% share (+0.1%), while PHEVs remained stable, at 0.6%.

Looking at November Best Sellers, the Renault Zoe recent registrations uptick (+144%!), with 1,895 units in November (#20 in the mainstream market) was the main reason for BEVs to shine, but it wasn't the only one, as the #2 Nissan Leaf tripled sales to 420 deliveries, while the BMW i3 had its best performance in 8 months, thanks to 229 units. 

But the real events were the #4 Peugeot iOn (258 units) and the #6 Citroen C-Zero (224) performances, that thanks to the Free2Move car-sharing deliveries, allowed both nameplates to break their personal records, an impressive feat, considering both models landed 608 8 years ago...

Interestingly, after Madrid and Lisbon, Paris is the third city to use large numbers of the tiny EVs in car-sharing fleets, which highlights the future importance of small, cheap, EVs in car-sharing fleets, once these kinds of companies become commonplace.

In a market known for its stability, this time there were a number of changes, with BEVs on the rise, not only the #8 Peugeot iOn and #12 Citroen C-Zero jumped positions, but the Tesla Model S also climbed 2 positions to #13, surpassing the Porsche Panamera PHEV and becoming the Best Selling Luxury car.

Another model shining is the Hyundai Ioniq Electric, that climbed one position to #17, thanks to 112 units, its best result since March.

On the PHEV side, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV took full profit from the restyling, climbing to #6, thanks to 320 units, the nameplate best result since 2014.  

Outside the Top 20, the Land Rover Range Rover PHEV had 210 registrations, a surprisingly high number for the British Land Yacht, allowing it to reach #7 in November and opening up the possibility to join the 2018 Top 20 in the last month of the year.

In the brands ranking, Renault (36%) continues in the leading position, followed at a distance by the #2 Nissan and the #3 BMW, both with 11% share.
