The HybridCars.com monthly sales dashboard is a collaboration of HybridCars.com and Baum & Associates, a Michigan-based market research firm focusing on automotive issues including the hybrid and electric vehicle market.

Hybrid sales are declining from highs achieved in recent months due largely to the decline in gas prices, but remain higher than they have generally in the past except for spikes that have occurred in periods of high gas prices.

The Prius family remains in the 50 to 60 percent range of the total. It should be noted that the Prius c and Prius v are doing a better job of maintaining their volume than the Prius Liftback, so there is some “cannibalization” of this core model.

Hybrids that remain in launch phase include the Acura ILX, BMW ActiveHybrid 5, and the Chevy Malibu.

Plug-in vehicles remain at recent levels, down somewhat from the high-water market of March 2012 when high fuel prices increased demand.

The Ford Focus Electric registered 89 sales and while it is still very much in a launch phase, volume will increase in coming months. The Volt continues to lead this category and sales should continue to increase modestly as better availability in California occurs. Volume for the LEAF have been consistent over the last few months and will remain modest until availability increases with domestic production late this year and early next year. Prius plug-in sales have dropped after a strong introduction in March and April, presumably due to both availability and the reduction in gas prices.

Diesel models remain relatively consistent with VW’s products representing three-quarters of the total. Volumes of the Jetta have declined somewhat from earlier levels, with Passat diesels picking up the slack.
