France: stock of registered passenger cars 2004-2019 According to the figures released in 2019 by the French Ministry of the Environment, the total French car fleet has growth in recent years, increasing from around 30.58 million cars in 2004 to an estimated 32.03 million cars in 2019.
The number of new passenger cars registered in France is reducing

Despite this stable increase, the annual number of new passenger cars registrations decreased from a peak of approximately 2.27 million new passenger cars registered in 2009 to around 2.07 million new registrations in 2017. Much in the same spirit, the number of new electric passenger cars registered in France went from 4 cars registered in 2008 to 21,751 cars in 2016 (Stat 789145). The projected figures for the electric car industry in France report that 763 thousand cars should be produced in 2021. A fact that could have an impact within the French society, given that passenger cars accounted for 27 percent of all the CO2 emissions in France in 2016 .

Low gasoline prices, an increase of the CO2 emissions in France?

There are concerns involving the CO2 emissions released by passenger cars, especially because of the fall of oil prices. With an average price for unleaded gasoline in France oscillating between 1.36 euros per liter in 2015 and 1.3 euros per liter in 2016, the fear that the carbon dioxide emissions start increasing again is still very present. After reducing its emissions of CO2 from almost 400 million metric tons in 2005 to approximately 300 million metric tons in 2014, France reported an increase - in comparison with the 2014 volume of emissions - of around 20 million metric tons in 2017.
