Mike Kruzeniski on Hybrid vs Truck sales over the past decade:
To concentrate on the significant change in purchases in the last decade, I made another graphic that focuses on just 1999 and 2009. I also looked in to the percentage of total vehicle market share for the two categories. The relative vehicle market share of trucks has decreased by 3%, down to 16% of the total market. Hybrids have grown from 0.0001% of the market in 1999, to 2.8% in 2009.
There’s a lot of data in the article, complete with graphs galore. Mike paints a really interesting picture in this gas guzzler vs gas sipper comparison. It’s definitely worth a read.
