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!


The reported sales of hybrids represented 2.14% of the more than 1.04 million new vehicles sold in the month.


So there isn’t a lot of price sensitivity to gasoline, but at least there is some.
