"Hybrid sales up 27% in January*"
*["That number does not yet include hybrid sales figures from GM, who does not report them separately."] Green Car Congress reports:
US sales of hybrids in January 2008 climbed 27.3% to 22,392 units, according to monthly sales reports from automakers…. Toyota’s Prius posted best-ever January sales of 11,379 units, an increase of 37.1% over last January….
Yes, the Prius is half of all (non-GM) hybrids sold!
So there isn’t a lot of price sensitivity to gasoline, but at least there is some.
