Car fleet: Clio, 206… what are the car models that circulate the most in France and Occitanie?

Here are the Top 50 cars of the cars you are most likely to encounter on our roads. Models that are not always recent, French for the overwhelming majority, petrol or diesel. This national and regional ranking was provided to Midi Libre by AAA-Data, a specialist in car-related data.

208s from 2011, Clios from 2005, Twingos from 1993… If SUVs and electric cars are on the rise, in the news as in new vehicle sales, they are far from the hearts of around 40 million cars , currently circulating in France, as highlighted Auto more.

This is one of the lessons that can be learned from reading the figures that are also given to Free lunch by AAA-Data, a Parisian company specializing in the processing and improvement of car-related data.

In this Top 50 of the different generations of models that cross the roads of France, there are no electric cars and almost 4 “SUVs”: Captur (Renault), Duster (Dacia), 2008 (Peugeot) and 3008 (Peugeot). Everything else is city cars and small sedans. Mostly French – the 1st foreign, the Fiat 500, is in 27th place – and who drive either diesel or petrol.

New car sales: 14th consecutive month of decline

The sale of new cars is at half-stick: according to figures from AAA-Data published at the beginning of August, the market has been in decline for fourteen consecutive months. And shows a – 15.3% since the beginning of the year. Main reasons: lack of new vehicles available due to the lack of certain components and declining purchasing power.

that used market is also a gray mine: – 29.3% in July. “It is again models under 5 years old (- 29.3%) that are hardest hit due to the fall in sales of new cars since 2020. But those from 5 to 10 years old lose 19.5% and the oldest 10 years . and above, fell by 10.7%”, specifies AAA-Data.

On the podium: 2005 Renault Clio 3 diesel with 602,502 units in circulation at the end of July; Peugeot 207 diesel also from 2005 (592,809 units); 2011 Peugeot 208 petrol (480,205 units). 100% tricolor.

Proof that Renault managed a masterpiece almost thirty years ago, its 1993 Twingo – the one for which it was necessary to “invent the life that goes with it” – is still very popular: it comes in 6th place! Over 420,000 units are still in circulation.

This Top 50 list about 14 million vehicles and therefore represent only a part of the models we meet today on the roads of France: in total the car park has more than 41 million cars, on average 11 years old. The market share for electric cars is 12% against 17% for diesel and 39% for petrol. Hybrids represent 28% of the population.
