Top 6 Plug-In Vehicle Adopting Countries

5. France


France’s total might be lower or higher depending on how one parses the data, but the stats we could get are 28,560 battery electric vehicles, including 17,256 cars and 11,304 utility vans, and excluding plug-in hybrids.

The country’s population is over 65,860,000 and sales of plug-in electrified vehicles per 1,000 people is around 0.44.

The market share is close to the U.S. at 0.65 percent but because this includes commercial vehicles, we named the U.S. as higher with 0.62 percent BEV and PHEV passenger cars. France’s market share is 0.49 if only all-electric cars are considered.
