Green Auto Sales Up

Gotta love it when you can find stories of research that shows the growth of the GREEN AUTO movement. Autoblog just posted their review of the September numbers and I just love this section from the story:

"GM once again was buoyed by demand for the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which resulted in 2,632 units sold. That more than offset the 28 percent decline in Chevy Volt extended-range plug-in sales. Overall, GM green-car sales jumped 56 percent from a year earlier."

So the highlight numbers are as follows:

Hybrids / Plug-ins up 8% from a year earlier at 44,000 units.

Plug-in sales were robust advancing 18% from a year ago at 14,500 units.

Ford saw a 24% increase in Green Auto Sales over last year.

Honda saw a 89% increase in Green Auto Sales over last year.

BMW saw a 3% increase in i auto sales

Toyota saw a 3% decline

Nissan saw a 20% decline as people held off for Leaf 2.0

First 9 months of 2017 saw 354,000 units sold or 8.6% increase in sales over last year. 122,000 units or 31% of that was Plug-ins.
