More and more cars coming up and with the federal and state incentives the pricing for these vehicles are still lowering...

Thanks, reb4.

It would be no big deal for Tesla to announce it's monthly sales and I wish they would. Even though the EV market is small, it's of interest to many people.

It's unfortunate that no one talks about the Honda Insight. I was skeptical about hybrids at first, but I have been impressed thus far. I have put over 90k miles on mine in 2 years, and I'm still getting over 50 mpg. Not sure how the sales are going, but keep it in mind if you're in the market.

reb4,

Much as I like my Prius, I think it would make a very poor bedroom.

welcome bajoe...

Charlie_H, I seemed to remember GM stating that the electic car was not a viable option, maybe they are getting to point that they now believe it is... Also, put just a 100 mile (actual) range in the Volt, it would be a game changer...

In fact if the PIP got 40 miles it would have gotten my purchase (though I might have been sleeping in it at night)...

reb4: "GM is claiming they will make a run at Tesla with an all Electric car. GM’s claim that it plans to develop batteries that will be able to move a car 200 miles on one charge, at a cost of $30,000 or so"

Thanks for the link, reb4.

That will be a neat trick. GM also said auto-grade atteries are $350/kwh and on top of that you probably need to add 20% more for building into packs. The Volt gets about 3.7 miles/kwh, so 200 miles range requires 54kwh of cells and then there's a factor to allow for not over or under-charging, so you really need about 65KWH of cells. That's $27K right there before you put any car around it.

GM Takes on Tesla — and Just Might Win

'may seem laughable to the cutting-edge technologists in Silicon Valley, but the biggest threat to the Valley’s beloved and revolutionary carmaker — Tesla — just might be doddering old General Motors (GM).'

Wow, GM is claiming they will make a run at Tesla with an all Electric car. GM’s claim that it plans to develop batteries that will be able to move a car 200 miles on one charge, at a cost of $30,000 or so — close to the range of the Model S, at less than half the cost. GM’s most prominent electric car, of course, is the Chevy Volt, which can travel about 35 miles on one charge, starts at $34,000, and is approximately as exciting as a minivan. GM launched the Volt in 2010 amid a huge hype campaign that ended up making the car seem like a failure. "

I for one hope they do it...

Looks like an "electrifying" month for plug-in sales

"Sales of the two highest-volume plug-in electric cars soared in August, with both the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf setting all-time monthly sales records.

And two Toyota plug-ins set sales records as well. The Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid sold more than it has all year, and the low-volume RAV4 EV electric crossover utility vehicle, with its Tesla powertrain, set an all-time monthly sales record."

Toyota Reminds Ford: The Prius Is Still Hybrid KingAn in your face statement to Ford from California:

"And, in a direct message to Ford, Toyota noted specifically that through May, according to registration data, Californians bought more Toyota hybrids than Ford sold passenger cars within its entire line-up."Toyota is indeed King in Hybrid sales, with over 5 million hybrids sold world wide..."In terms of impacts on the environment, the sale of 5.3 million hybrids globally, and over 2 million in the U.S., “have resulted in approximately 34 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions than those emitted by gasoline-powered vehicles, and have saved their owners more than 3 billion gallons of gasoline.”"
