4. The average consumption of all diesel vehicles sold in France has fallen by 1 liter per 100 km in 10 years (2005 average: 5,6 l / 100 km) but has stabilized for 2 years. During this same period, the average consumption of gasoline vehicles decreased by 0,8 l (2005 average: 6,7 l / 100 km).

8. 2005 saw the appearance of small gasoline city cars with low CO2 emissions: 109 g / km for the Citroën C1 1.0 i, Peugeot 107 1.0 e, Toyota AYGO 1.0, Daihatsu Cuore. Gasoline vehicles now represent 10% of Class B energy label sales.

9. The year 2005 was marked by an increase in the sale of larger vehicles (minivan and 4 × 4) penalizing consumption. In particular, the market for minispaces (modus type or 1007) increased by 50% in 2005. It now represents 6,34% of sales compared to 4,15% in 2004).

10. The 4 × 4 market share increased in France by 0,6%. This increase is due to:

  • the market loss of 1,1% of the luxury premium class (example: a 4X4 BMW X5 is purchased instead of large sedans such as BMW 5 series, megane or Peugeot 307);
  • the loss of the lower middle class market where the smaller Toyota Rav 4 style 4x4s replace sedan type cars.
    According to an ADEME-FIFB survey, two-thirds of 4X4 owners use them daily for their traditional uses.
