Electricity, ZFE and restrictions: motorists are completely lost

Between the development of electricity, ZFEs and other constraints, drivers no longer really know what to do.

Just a few years ago, buying a car wasn’t too complicated. All you had to do was choose the model that best suited your needs and your budget, and you were good to go. But things have changed over the years, and finding the ideal model is no longer really that simple. Indeed, we now have to deal with new regulations, which make things more complicated. Indeed, it is necessary to take into account the ZFE and other traffic restrictions, as well as the penalty and financial aid such as the bonus for the purchase of an electric car. And this greatly complicates the lives of motorists.

In the dark

In any case, this is what a study just published by Cetelem reveals and carried out in no less than 16 countries. Overall, it appears that most motorists do not count not buy a new car for at least a year, while 36% of respondents do not plan to do so at all. In fact, 64% of drivers surveyed in France say that it is difficult to decide to buy a new car. The reason is the vagueness regarding the regulations. According to Flavien Neuvy, director of the Observatory, “the consumer is a little lost. He doesn’t know if it’s the right time, because he doesn’t know whether to buy electric, hybrid, gasoline or diesel«.

A good idea ?

But that’s not all. In fact, only 58% of French people have understood the principle of ZFEs, while a large proportion still remains completely in the dark. Furthermore, more and more motorists are hesitant to buy an electric car, particularly due to the rise in energy prices. Furthermore, the price also remains a barrier for many potential buyers, as does recharging.
