Electric-drive Car Sales Record New High in November

US car dealers sold 7,600 electric cars in November, bringing total sales for 2012 to 47,500 to date.

Electric car sales reached a record in November for the fourth consecutive month as new models like the Ford C-Max Energi plug-in electric hybrid helped juice buyer interest.

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.

That of course is but a rounding error for most carmakers. Ford, for instance, sold 177,673 cars in November alone and electric vehicle sales are just .4% of total U.S. automotive sales for the year to date.
