Meanwhile, starting around 3:16 of http://nbr.com/2016/05/03/nightly-busin ... -3-2016-2/
, they mention red hot sales of the Ford F-150 truck, Chevy Silverado and SUVs.
Per http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -u-s-sales
, US Leaf sales are down 49.3% vs. the same period last year and down 34.1% YTD. Total Nissan group sales are up 12.8% vs. same month last year and up 9.8% CYTD.
I am a bit surprised that per http://insideevs.com/monthly-plug-in-sales-scorecard/
, Volt sales are still so strong, given that CA green HOV stickers are gone. I guess they're still wanted in general and/or outside CA.http://www.latimes.com/business/autos/l ... story.html
