USA: Sales of Plug-in Hybrids Eclipse Pure EVs in November

The Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid has once again topped the plug-in vehicle segment. It led the pack back in April, so November 2012 marks the second time the Prius Plug-In was the number one seller. Meanwhile, the Ford C-Max Energi, in its first full month on the market, leapt into fourth place in sales in the plug-in vehicle category.

For November, Prius Plug-In sales check at a healthy 1,766 units, bringing the plug-in Prius’ year-to-date US sales total to 11,389. Sales of the plug-in version of the Prius accounted for a healthy 10.7 percent of sales of the Prius family, which includes the Prius liftback, Prius V wagon, and Prius C compact (all conventional hybrids).
Ford C-Max Energi

It’s still too early to establish a long-term trend for the Ford C-Max Energi, but it’s so far proving to be a strong player in the plug-in segment. With 1,259 units sold in November—and still not available nationwide—it appears that Ford will have a strong presence in the plug-in market, especially considering that it will soon begin selling the plug-in version of the Ford Fusion.
