After looking at overall November and 11 months 2012 US rankings, as is now the tradition on BSCB we now explore in detail the best-selling Hybrid and Electric cars. While this segment saw its sales nearly double year-on-year in October at +95%, this month the growth is a more humble yet still impressive 47% to 41,617 registrations. This brings the year-to-date total to 434,943 sales, up a mammoth 68% on 2011. In other words, if all Hybrid and Electric cars sold in the US were one model it would rank #2 behind only the Ford F-Series… Note 2 in 3 Hybrid and Electric cars sold in the country in 2012 so far is a Toyota or a Lexus, however Ford is catching on…
While the Toyota Prius still leads the ranking by far, its sales are down a worrying 23% year-on-year to 8,925 units. Like last month, the Top 2 most popular vehicles in the category are Toyotas, with the Camry replacing the Prius c in 2nd spot with 3,924 sales, up fivefold on November 2011. For its third month of sales, the Ford C-Max confirms it is a serious contender in the category and potentially the key to Ford establishing themselves as a true player in the Hybrid world. It sells 3,589 units and ranks #3, ahead of its competitor the Toyota Prius V (2,690 sales) for the 2nd month running. Funny/Clever how launching an 18-month old car as a Hybrid only in the US put Ford on the sustainable map…
