https://www.greencarreports.com - This has been something of a plug-in hybrid month. Last week we got our first drive in the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, which we felt was the first affordable car with a range similar to that of the Chevrolet Volt.
https://www.greencarreports.com - With the launch of the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid sedan, the Chevrolet Volt now has its first serious competition among long-range plug-in hybrids. About 25,000 second-generation Volts were sold last year, and this year's number will be about 20,000.
https://www.autoblog.com - f Congress eliminates an electric vehicle tax credit it "will have an impact" on sales of U.S. electric vehicles such as General Motors' Chevrolet Bolt, GM Chief Executive Mary Barra said on Monday. The House version of a bill that would cut corporate tax rates calls for eliminating the current tax credit of up to $7,500 for purchasers of electric vehicles. Auto industry and environmental groups are lobbying to save the credit as the House and Senate move to merge their versions of the tax overhaul legislation.
https://www.greencarreports.com - A record 582 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrids were sold in Canada last month, two months after Chevy delivered a then-record 483 Volts in September. The achievement is even more impressive considering Canadian car sales dropped by 15 percent between the two months, as the industry enters its slow season.
http://www.hybridcars.com - Tesla remains the brand with the most sales of plug-in cars in the US but General Motors is close and experienced more year-over-year growth to date. Last month, GM’s two best sellers, the extended-range Chevrolet Volt and Bolt EV plus the discontinued Cadillac ELR, Cadillac CT6 PHEV, and discontinued Spark EV helped it edge out Tesla with 4,742 sales to 3,550 estimated of the Model S, X and 3.
http://www.hybridcars.com - Last month the Toyota Prius Prime overtook the Chevy Volt’s lead in cumulative sales this year and the two cars are neck and neck sprinting toward a December 31 finish line. If the Prius ends the year with more total sales than the Volt, it will become the first plug-in hybrid to do so since the Volt originated the category in 2011.
http://www.hybridcars.com - Overall sales for November were strong, but down from the previous two months which “enjoyed” replacement demand due to the two late summer hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida. Incentives were high which enabled a high rate of sales. All categories except diesel were up from October, while all categories were up from last November. Year-to-date, sales for each category were up with the exception of diesels.
https://www.greencarreports.com - Chevy didn't quite pull it off in November, but it could well happen this month in a burst of end-of-year sales. In this case, "it" would be selling 3,000 Chevrolet Bolt EV electric cars in a single month: the delivery total reported last month was 2,987.
http://www.hybridcars.com - Once again, the Chevrolet Bolt EV raised its all-time high sales with 2,987 deliveries in November, putting its extended-range electric Volt sibling clearly in its rear-view mirror. The Volt sold 1,702 units, and with one month to go this year, the Bolt has 20,070 sales, and the Volt has 18,412.
https://www.greencarreports.com - In recent years, Ford Motor Company's plans for putting more plug-in electric cars on the road have been, shall we say, murky. GM has the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, sales of its Chevy Bolt EV 238-mile electric car have risen every month, and it plans a pair of all-electric SUVs by 2020—but Ford now offers just two vehicles that plug in.
