Prius Plug-Ins Reach 6,000 In US & 15,000 Globally

August was not just a good month for the Volt or the Leaf but also for sales of the Prius plug-in models.  Sales were 1,047 cars, up 52% from July.

More than 15,000 plug-in Prius models have been sold globally as of August.  US sales were 6,068 of that total or about 40% of the world market.

Gasoline pricing is impacting US consumer interest in plug-ins, with August seeing escalating fuel prices, and more plug-in sales.
