Hybrid cars: the top 10 sales from January to August 2021

1.126 million new passenger cars were sold in France between January and August 2021, according to the latest data available on the Automotive Platform (PFA), with the market posting a decline of 23.3% compared to the same period of 2019. And of this total, the hybrid segment now represents 24.9% of the market, with 280,570 registrations over the eight months.

Renault comes in 2nd position with the Clio and 4th with the Captur. The French manufacturer will certainly be able to count on its Arkana hybrid in the coming months, which is slowly climbing up the rankings. The diamond SUV came in second in August alone, with 1,753 registrations. This is more than the Captur which accumulates 1293 registrations in August, but less than the Yaris which arrives at 2712 registrations. To be continued …
