Want to know the top 10 selling cars in the US? Well just to clarify, this is not a list of the 10 best selling hybrids, rather it is a list of all cars, SUV’s, and trucks. With oil prices near record highs of $120+ a barrel, consumers are taking notice and making purchases to offset the rising cost. You will see many smaller cars and surprisingly no SUV’s in the top 10. This list is of sales in April 2008, but should be a sign of future trends. The best selling hybrid, Toyota Prius, scored 8th place outright, and many of the top selling models offer hybrid engine options. Major auto companies are noticing this trend, and even GM is unveiling a list of hybrids, including the Tahoe, Malibu, and Escalade in 2008 and 2009.
52.6% of all automobiles sold in April were cars, a gain of 5.2% compared to the same month last year. Now the main question is Would you buy a Hybrid?
