    Ford sold 1,259 C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrids in November

    LINK

    Ford reported selling 1,259 units of the C-MACX Energi plug-in hybrid in November, with cumulative sales of 1,403 units including 144 units from October, when the vehicle went on sale. Ford also reported its best month yet for the Focus Electric, with 172 units sold, bring the total for the year through November to 518 units.

    Those results place Ford, with total plug-in vehicle sales for the month of 1,431 units, behind Toyota, Nissan and GM—respectively first (1,766 units of Prius PHV); second (1,539 LEAFs); and third (1,519 Volts)—in plug-in vehicle sales for November. (Earlier post.)

    In total, Ford sold 4,848 C-MAX models in the US in November, 74% of them the regular C-MAX hybrid, 26% of them the Energi plug-in hybrid variant. (In November, Toyota’s Prius PHV accounted for 10.7% of total sales of the Prius family.)

    Sales of the C-MAX hybrid increased 18% from the October results of 3,038 units. Total C-MAX (hybrid and PHEV) sales through November are 8,999 units. Sales of other Ford car hybrid models were:

    Fusion: 1,834
    Lincoln MKZ: 282

    C-MAX seems to be doing pretty dang well in the market, even as a new player. Nice to see.

    Yeah, apparently it's very popular in California....
    I wonder if lack of Volt stock there was sending potential buyers over to C-Max.
    but from what's being said, a significant number of Prius buyers switched camps...

    I have seen about 3 Volts and 2 C-Max's in Racine which is saying ALOT...For reference to non-locals, we have a higher crime rate than Compton and the median household income for 2009 was $35k.

    I am not a fan of much of what ford is doing lately, and there isn't much to the Cmax that I like (at least as far as how it looks.) However, I would be more likely to buy one than the Volt simply because it has more space. The Volt is great, but the time has come for GM to make a second version, one that is bigger than a typical low-to-the-ground compact car.

    Agreed, GM needs to do more with Voltec and I hope it picks something like a small to medium Utility to capture a different part of the market..
