The Model 3 was the second most registered vehicle in November, with a huge score. Logic: Tesla has started deliveries of the restyled version.
The slight recovery in health of the French automobile market was confirmed again in November. Last month, 152,710 new passenger cars were registered in France, an increase in raw data of 14% compared to November 2022.
Once again, the market was driven by electric cars. In volume, these increased over one year by 52%, with 30,776 units. But the most interesting thing concerns market share: electric vehicles represented 20.2% of registrations in November, or one in five cars!
If electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular, there is also a particular context which is boosting registrations: the tightening of the ecological bonus in mid-December. With the implementation of an eco-score, very popular models will be deprived of the bonus because they are produced in China.
Customers are therefore rushing to take advantage of state aid for these vehicles, in particular the Spring and MG4. The brands concerned accelerated order taking a few months ago and increased stocks for the end of the year. Moreover, the Spring and MG4 achieved one of their best scores in November, with 2,557 examples registered for the Romanian and 1,896 for the Chinese.
But that’s not all. One model alone could explain this November record: the Tesla Model 3! The American brand has started delivering the restyled Highland version to France. And with big loads, since in November, 6,081 copies of the Model 3 were registered. The car is the second best-selling model, all energies combined. It remains behind the Renault Clio (7,474 registrations) but is ahead of the Dacia Sandero and its 5,269 units.
If the Model Y seems less in good shape next to it, it still represented 3,218 sales. Moreover, cumulatively, Tesla registered 9,389 cars last month, making it the 7th manufacturer on the market. The American is right on the heels of Citroën and its low score of 9,957 sales.
Since January, Tesla has already delivered more than 54,000 vehicles in France. He is also 7th there, doing better than BMW and Mercedes.
