Sales of GM hybrids almost non-existent in first quarter
During the same period Ford moved 5,225 Escape and Mariner Hybrids and Toyota sold...well let's just say Toyota sold a whole lot more than that. While GM has made plenty of auto show announcements about hybrids and they run lots of print and TV ads promoting their green-ness, they haven't really done a lot to promote hybrids on the lot. Perhaps they don't actually want to sell that many because the cost is so much higher and they don't want to lose all that money. Or perhaps customers just don't really want a hybrid full-size truck. Perhaps, as Troy Clarke told us at the Chicago Auto Show, they were holding them back for captured fleet testing until they were sure everything was right. Have any of you readers actually tried to find a hybrid at a dealership or tried to buy one? Let us know about your experience.
