By year's end, the only car makers to see an overall increase in hybrid sales were General Motors and Nissan. GM added general availability of the Tahoe and Yukon two-modes as well as the new Vue and Malibu mild hybrids. That resulted in a 179 percent increase, while Nissan Altima hybrids climbed 5.1 percent. Ford's Escape/Mariner hybrids dropped 22 percent, Honda's Civic dropped 12.5 percent and Toyota's array of hybrids dropped a similar amount. Chrysler sold a total of 81 Durango and Aspen hybrids.
