The French prefer hybrid technology


SURVEY – As part of the ecological transition, the Argus asked motorists about their preferred solution. The hybrid engine comes first in purchasing intentions.

In which car will we drive tomorrow?

If the MEPs have decided, deciding that from January 1, 2035, consumers could only buy electric vehicles (battery or fuel cell), unless there is a change at the end of the review clause, d 'Here all the options are on the table.

And that's what worries motorists.

Faced with regulatory constraints such as ZFE (low emission zones), incentives granted to certain technologies, changes in energy prices (fuels and electricity) and manufacturers' catalogs, consumer usage, choosing your next vehicle becomes a real headache.

Nevertheless, the Argus wanted to go further and ask the French for the solution they intended to favor tomorrow.

Unsurprisingly, a large majority of people questioned consider that electricity still presents too many constraints and uncertainties.

While this technology is still handicapped by its prohibitive price and the range-recharging time ratio, the lack of charging infrastructure and the evolution of the price of kWh also represent blocking points which explain the slowdown in demand.

Accused of all evils and soon driven out of towns, diesel is seeing its share shrink more and more.

Motorists now favor the gasoline engine with or without E85 box.

This last solution is gaining more and more followers, driven by a particularly attractive price per litre.

The other technology to come out on top is the hybrid.

While the rechargeable hybrid is considered too expensive and too restrictive since it is necessary to recharge the battery as often as possible to take full advantage of the electric range.

This is how the simple hybrid is considered by the majority of those questioned as the best compromise since the constraint of having to recharge the battery on the mains is avoided.

Admittedly, the electric range is limited to a few kilometers at low speed, but this technology remains more affordable than the rechargeable hybrid.

This is how this technology is also supported by an increasingly attractive offer.
