French Guianan striker Sloan Privat puts the hosts ahead after 14 minutes before Algerian midfielder Ryad Boudebouz doubled their lead just before the break from the penalty spot.
Evian hit back after half-time, forward Youssef Adnane scoring 10 minutes after the re-start to give the visitors hope of snatching at least a point from the match.
But Sochaux held on for victory, which sees them move into 17th place in Ligue 1 on 10 points while Evian drop into the bottom three two points behind.
