The French remain attached to Diesel

Despite the current trend of favoring “clean” vehicles, the French are not ready to give up their diesel car, according to a new study.

According to a new Harris Interactive survey carried out for the National Council of the Automobile Professions (CNPA) and published by Le Parisien, the majority of French people are not ready to give up Diesel. This survey was carried out on a sample of 1,025 people, representing French people over 18, and is interested in their relationship to mobility.

Even if the Climate Law provides for the prohibition of the sale of combustion vehicles by 2040, their use is already compromised in the near future, with the establishment of the famous ZFE (Low Emission Zones) in large urban areas. A measure that the vast majority of French people (71%) consider excessive, when they are 45% to be opposed to the elimination of Diesel in urban areas.

Diesel represents 60% of the French car fleet

Indeed, if the legislator wishes their disappearance, 60% of the vehicle fleet still runs on Diesel today, and the French do not necessarily have the means to replace their vehicle, the purchase of which was encouraged to them a few years ago with a great deal of ecological bonuses based on their CO emissions rates.2.

As for the alternatives, they are still struggling to convince: the majority of French people (64%) have no plans to buy an electric vehicle within five years, and find electric vehicles too expensive (at 67%) or that their autonomy is not sufficient for their needs (at 60%).
