2014 Chevrolet Volt Sets The Sales Bar At An All-Time High For "PHEVs" 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.

And the Nissan LEAF set an all-time sales high.

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.
