2012 Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Sales Jump 73%

Many new models and record high gas prices caused sales of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles to surge  in 2012.  One analysis put the sale increase at 73% to 440,000 vehicles.  This year sales could exceed 535,000 vehicles or about one out of every 28 cars sold.

The future of hybrids, plug-ins, and electric vehicles looks bright because gas prices remain high; more attractive models enter the market; and the electric charging stations multiply.
