Shopping Guide. Which electric car to buy, from €17,000 to €60,000?

New vehicle sales are falling. The predictions for the year 2022 are not good for manufacturers who even refuse to take orders for certain models, as the tension on semiconductors and supplies is strong.

In March, 181,134 vehicles were registered, a decrease of more than 21% compared to the same period last year. However, the 100% electric car market is doing well. In March, the share of electric vehicles was 13.5% of the total number of license plates.

Electric and heavy trend

All manufacturers rely on electric motorization, including in the utilities area. Alliance announces 35 new electric models between Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi; the Volkswagen group and Stellantis are going into the forced electric market, as are Volvo, Toyota (17 projects in development) and even BMW.

As for Korea, the Hyundai group has just launched Kia’s EV6. Finally, China is increasingly present, including in France with the MG offensive.
