America Loves Electric Vehicles – Passes 10,000 Sold For First Time In August

Early in August when General Motors decided that now was the time to drop the price on the best selling car in the electric segment – the Chevrolet Volt – by $5,000 (to $34,995), we knew it was going to be a strong month for the car. And by month’s end, GM’s North American President Mark Reuss let the cat out of the bag to the LA Times:

Then as Nissan said they were seeing LEAF sales ramp up in several markets across the country and they also expected an all-time high for August, we figured a monthly record for plug-in sales in America would be set.
