  • November was the hottest month yet for EV sales in the US

    In November, for the fourth consecutive month, electric car sales reached a record as new models like the Ford C-Max Energi plug-in electric hybrid (pictured above) helped amplify buyer interest.

    At Forbes, Todd Woody has the scoop:

    According to analyst Aaron Chew of the Maxim Group, dealers sold 7,600 electric cars in November, bringing total sales for 2012 to 47,500 to date. Chew expects the year to end with sales of 56,000 electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

    Ford's new C-Max Energi received a positive consumer response upon launch, with 1,259 being sold in November just a month after the plug-in electric hybrid was introduced. The Toyota Prius plug-in led EV sales in November with 1,766, while Chevrolet Volt which recorded sales of 1,519.

    Tesla, meanwhile, delivered an estimated 1,150 of its Model S sports sedans in November.

    "Despite just launching in late June 2012, this would propel TSLA to No. 5 in U.S. EV deliveries in November 2012," Chew wrote.
