Zapping Auto Moto Ford Bronco 2023 test: bench for the Bronco
As for years, the situation is not changing: the electric car does not convince low-income households. In fact, 90% of them do not want these new vehicles. This is evidenced by an annual barometer carried out by Aramisauto, leader in the online sale of used cars and OpinionWay.
The first obstacle is, naturally, financial, for 72% of respondents. More than a third of French people even have doubts about the positive environmental impact of vehicles using electric technology.
Thermal and Chinese vehicles in the hearts of the French
This is why 65% of them would opt for a thermal model if they had to buy a new car. A trend increasing by 6%, compared to 2022. Surprisingly, 48% of respondents would turn to a Chinese… thermal model. This is linked to the price advantage of these vehicles.
For these reasons, eight out of 10 French people would like state tax advantages not to focus only on zero-emission vehicles. This would undoubtedly involve integrating low-polluting thermal vehicles, those that the French want to buy.
The government’s plans are not convincing
Other government projects do not convince citizens either. Thus, the social leasing system at 100 euros per month subject to means conditions is only approved by 54% of respondents.
As for low-emission zones (ZFE), only 46% of households have a vehicle with a Crit’Air sticker allowing entry into these zones. Eight out of 10 households even say they are in favor of an exemption for prohibited vehicles, in order to allow them to circulate.

To sum up
Low-income households are not tempted by new electric cars. The vast majority do not want to buy them. What they want for cars is in complete opposition to what the government is putting in place.
