Towards a transformation of the automobile sector?

    The automobile support program presented Wednesday 25 th of July by the French government relies on a reinforcement of the bonus/malus system and a public procurement focused on energy-efficient vehicles. Thus, the maximum financial grants will be 7 000 euros for electrical vehicles and 4 000 euros for hybrid vehicles. The bonus for internal combustion vehicles with low CO2 emissions will be raised from 100 to 150 euros, depending on the cases. Currently, the sales of electrical vehicles remain limited at 0,12% of the market, the gasoline hybrid at 0,58% and diesel hybrid at 0,12%. The second line of this program is based on an elicitation to procurement contracts purchasing this type of vehicles. The bonus/malus system will be extended to public buyers. At least 25% of the public vehicles purchased by the State shall be electrical or hybrid.

The auto-scrapping was completed on December 31st last, but its effects still influence positively the French auto market. Sales of new cars rose by 8.2% to 85,603 units from January 2010, according to figures released by the Committee of French Car Manufacturers (CCFA). This is because the record order of cars in the last months of 2010 was partially honored in January. PSA and brand low-cost Renault, Dacia, have benefited most from these achievements. Further to the economic daily “Les Echos” reports, auto-scrapping incentives have cost the French State more than one billion euros in two years. France paid incentives for 563,434 cars in 2010, paying a total of 510 million in 12 months. In 2009, this figure was even higher, 514 million euros.
