Electric mobility is catching up with mechanics

electric versus mechanical mobility market share

From year to year, the electric market is progressing in France compared to mechanical mobility. If in 2019, the electric was still largely outpaced by its mechanical counterpart, the electric mobility market is on the way to ahead of it.

With 48% of the market in 2020 , the boom in electric mobility, driven by scooters, is growing exponentially. With 9% market share in 2016 and 37% in 2019, all the indicators are green for mechanical mobility to be exceeded by 2022 !

The number 1 selling electric scooter

This is the second year in a row that electric scooters are at the top of sales for all engines combined. With the shortage of electric bikes, electric scooters are emerging as the preferred ecological travel solution for the French.

More than 2 million users of electric scooters in France

According to Fabrice Furlan, president of the FP2M, " the health crisis has democratized the means of transport that are electric scooters. As soon as the first confinement ended, new users prepared for a new mobility limiting the multiplication of transport by common ."

4 types of categories then stood out among these new users:

  • Micro-mobility users for leisure with an average basket of 300 euros .
  • Users of regular urban mobility turning to products between 300 and 500 euros
  • Users of electric scooters looking for more comfort, autonomy and robustness and who do not hesitate to put between 500 and 800 euros in a product.
  • Users of intensive urban mobility who can afford EDPMs at more than 800 euros .

As for gyroroues and gyropods, the craze continues with a very strong increase in sales. With 7100 gyroroues sold in 2020 , the French are discovering more and more this very special mode of travel. This still requires time to adapt in order to properly control this vehicle in urban conditions.

But the most obvious progression is that of Segways . With 5200 units sold, this represents an increase of 206% compared to last year. Often used for rental, this electric two-wheeler is increasingly offered in the tourist industry in order to discover places easily and in an ecological way.


Whether from an economic or environmental point of view, micro-mobility is more than ever a sector that matters! This has also led to the emergence of new professions , around repair or recycling in particular. Personal transport devices constitute an ideal compromise between the need for mobility of the French and the requirements of physical distance .
