AddMay 2013: Green-car sales rise 30% compared to 2012

52REPORT: China passes U.S. in auto sales

Most of the world has been knee deep in a wicked recession for quite a while, and auto sales have been hit especially hard. Here in the U.S., the numbers have been abysmal, as the first half of the year saw only 4.8 million sales through June.
