The total sales for the Chevrolet Volt in 2012 were 23,461, much better than in the previous year when the Volt made its debut. These numbers indicate that consumers are valuing more energy-responsible vehicles. The estimate for total electric vehicle sales in 2012 sits at about 53,000, which has also tripled from 2011. While a small number in comparison to overall vehicle sales, there’s no doubt consumers are turning to more fuel efficient cars.
For those concerned with the amount of energy used by automobiles, sales of the Chevy Volt are a sign of positive change. Vehicles in the United States are second in energy consumption as stated by the US Energy Information Administration. According to the Administration, consumers used a total of 8.63 million gasoline barrels each day to power their cars and light trucks. So far Volt drivers have driven 117 million miles on electric power and saved 6.2 million gallons of gasoline.
