The Leafs are falling up in France in 2013

In the last six months the number of electric vehicles sold in France has doubled.

France is leading the way in Europe offering the largest vehicle incentives topping €7000.  In the first six months of 2013 nearly 5000 electric vehicles were sold in France besting the entire year of 2012 (just under 2300) Although the Nissan Leaf is fairing well in the European Market, France’s own Renault Zoe is still leading the pack with 75% of all EVs sold.  The Leaf does hold the position of second most EVs sold in France but by a large margin, standing in at barely more than 10% of the market.

At this rate France could very well hit the 10,000 sold mark by years-end.
