The price of new cars jumped by 6% in France in 2023

It’s not just fuel prices that are through the roof. New cars sold in France in 2023 were 6% more expensive than the previous year, with an average price of 35,474 euros, according to a study by the firm AAA Data transmitted to Le Figaro. In 2022, a new vehicle registered in France cost on average 33,529 euros.

Although they are increasingly popular, electric cars remain among the least affordable on the market, with an average price of 41,994 euros (3%). Only plug-in hybrids do worse (59,419 euros; 7%). Other types of hybrid vehicles are, however, more affordable: classic hybrids were, on average, 34,799 euros in 2023 and mild hybrids at 34,765 euros. However, the prices of these two categories of automobiles also increased, by 5% and 2% respectively.

On the thermal side, which now represents less than half of sales in France, gasoline cars remain much cheaper than electric and hybrid cars, with an average price of 28,124 euros, up 5% however. A diesel remains expensive, at 37,997 euros on average (8%). The most affordable, at 19,294 euros, remain the dual-fuel models, compatible with E85 or LPG. These are also the only vehicles which saw their average price fall in 2023, by 2%.
