Chevy’s Gone Green: Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt Get Highest Sales Yet

Chevrolet is definitely going green–or at least, its customers are, as GM announces best-ever monthly sales of its four most gas-sipping models.

Helping to reach sales 10 percent greater than those in August last year, the Spark, Sonic, Cruze and Volt all set their highest monthly sales figures since hitting the market.

In addition to the Volt’s August sales record of 2,831 vehicles–up on the previous best of 2,289, set earlier this year in March–the Sonic and Cruze also beat their previous bests by several hundred vehicles.

The tiny Chevy Spark almost doubled its July figures, as a result of natural increases following its first full month on sale. Chevy sold 2,630 Sparks in August, up from July’s tally of 1,460.

GM is putting some of the sales boost down to extensive promotion during the summer’s Olympic Games, but increasing awareness of cars like the Volt is also playing a part, having out-sold its Nissan Leaf rival consistently this year.
