Sales of Plug-In Hybrids Hit All-Time High in US in August
A quick glance at out plug-in scorecard for August shows that it was a month of record-setting all around.
There were 11,000-plus plug-ins sold in August.
The Chevy Volt became the first plug-in to exceed 3,000 units sold in a single month.
But what if we turn only to the plug-in hybrids on the list?
Well, there’s a record there, too.
As it turns out, 6,407 plug-in hybrids (here we’re sort of forced to include the EREV Chevy Volt) were sold in August—up 83% compared to July and 65% compared to August 2012.
The previous high-water mark for plug-in hybrids was 4,994 back in October 2012.
