Hybrid Car Sales, July 2007

Percent of Hybrid Car Sales Chart July 2007Even though total car sales in the US were down 12 percent, hybrid car sales were up 11.5% from last July, and have gone over the 210,000 units sold through this year. Toyota, Nissan, Ford, and Honda sold 28,585 units in the month of July. Toyota sold 80.9% of those hybrids, of which 70% were Prius.

Honda has cumulative hybrid car sales since January, 2006 of just under the 60,000 mark. Expect them to break through next month, sending them into the hybrid tax credit phase out period at the end of March next year.

Of the ten full hybrids I track, only the Prius and the GS 450h increased sales from last July. But the Civic, Prius, Camry, GS450h and Escape/Mariner hybrids are still up in cumulative sales from last year. According to the latest J.D. Powers report, hybrid car sales are expected to hit 345,000 units by the end of the year.
