BUT WILL THEY SELL WHEN IRAN COMES IN FROM THE COLD?:

Electric cars, hybrids see record sales (Dee-Ann Durbin, April 14, 2012, AP)

Consumers bought a record 52,000 gas-electric hybrids and all-electric cars in March, up from 34,000 during the same month last year.

The two categories combined made up 3.64 percent of total U.S. sales, their highest monthly market share ever, according to Ward's AutoInfoBank. The previous high was 3.56 percent in July 2009, when the Cash for Clunkers program encouraged people to trade in old gas guzzlers for more fuel-efficient cars.
