Amine Gharby, our Country Manager, Nadia Solange Amari, our Regional Brand Manager, and Emile Josselin, the Senior PR & Partnership Manager in France will help drive the EV ecosystem forward in Europe’s second largest economy! Monta is the operating platform powering the EV ecosystem serving drivers, companies, cities, and the electricity grid with one integrated software solution.

We’re bringing a wealth of experience to serve operators (CPOs), installers, and EV drivers to move the entire ecosystem forward. Our growth in other critical markets like the Nordics, Germany, and the U.K., make us the go-to for everything EV. We’re the fastest-growing EV charging platform in Europe, with the most comprehensive offering on the market that combines a leading back office management system with an easy-to-use app for customers. We are currently present in 7 European countries and are delighted to support our French customers.

The EV ecosystem relies on growing businesses like ours to revolutionize not only charging for drivers, but everything from managing charge points and payment systems, all the way down to a driver roaming on a road-trip.

Forget football, their Renault and Peugeot HQs, and even their culture, and cuisine for a second, and let’s look at how they’re performing in the #EV Market.

The chart below shows new vehicle registrations, the blue line represents Battery Electric Vehicles, and the purple line is for plug-in hybrids:


Since 2019, the share of new registrations for electric vehicles (EVs) has been increasing, with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) projected to amount to 14% in 2022, and of all plug-in vehicles (BEVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) projected to reach 22% in 2022. Although France’s adoption of EVs is not yet on par with that of the Nordic countries, the growth in EV adoption in France is significant and shows no signs of slowing down. This escalating and growing EV market means that we at Monta are uniquely placed not only to enter the market, but guide it forward.

As for charging infrastructure, the country has more than 70K public charge points and that number has been growing by 50% year to year. This is the third largest amount of public charging points in Europe, behind only Germany and the Netherlands.

From a legislative perspective, the government is fully on board with the electrification revolution! President Emmanuel Macron has announced a range of new measures to bolster electric vehicle (EV) adoption in the country, such as a new EV leasing scheme that will make EVs available for just 100€/month, and an increase of the EV bonus from 6,000 to 7,000 euros for households that could benefit from the extra support.

What does Monta bring to the table? While our SmartCharge feature ensures that you can charge with renewable energy, lower CO2, or to save money — or a combination of all three), our Charge Point Management System (CPMS) ensures that operators are always in full control of their Charge Points. Monta is an entire software platform that can take care of all EV needs.

It means you can bathe in the sun-drenched Riviera, take a leisurely stroll along the iconic banks of the Seine, breathe in the fresh air as you saunter through the sprawling vineyards of Bordeaux, or just relax and people-watch at a quaint café in the so-called La France Profonde (Deep France), all while your #EV charges with Monta.
