Hybridcars.com's monthly wrap-up of hybrid sales is out for August and nothing much has changed. Toyota sold a lot of Priuses (14,000+ units, up 26 percent from last August), but overall the market was down. Hybridcars suggests it might be low gas prices (compared to earlier this year) that helped depress hybrid sales. You can read the rest of their analysis at the Read link, below.

      Hybrid buyers are an unusually informed lot. I'd wager that many are waiting for the next generation of plug-ins to hit the market. I know that I am...

      Ah… more spin from those who can’t seem to put 2 thoughts together. They really love half-truths. I remember those old cliff-hangers where you would have to wait until the next episode to get at the whole truth.

      Hmmm... I wonder if the declining hybrid sales is due the the fact that newer hybrid models are increasingly only available in certain areas of the country... surely not, because no one outside CA, NY, MA, etc would EVER consider getting a hybrid anyway, so this wouldn't be a factor at all... haha ridiculous automakers and their predictably poor decisions.

      One has to have a car. You can't just wait until the next technology revision is available.
