which car to buy from € 17,390 to € 60,000

New car sales are down. Forecasts for 2022 are not good for manufacturers who refuse to accept orders for certain models, as the pressure 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 amounted to 13.5% of total registrations.

Electric tendency, heavy

All manufacturers rely on electric motorization, even in the field of utility. The Alliance announces 35 new electric models between Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi; the Volkswagen Group and Stellantis are going through the forced electricity market, as are Volvo, Toyota (17 projects under development) and even BMW.

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

Based on the platform common to the thermals, the e-208 does not lose in habitability. If the engine offers 136 hp in Sport mode, it is better to play in Normal mode (109 hp) or Eco mode to save autonomy. Insufficient autonomy to make good use of it. Photo PSA / Stellantis
