Hybrid and electric car sales are up 73 percent over last year, with about 440,000 hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electrics sold thus far this year, representing 3.3 percent of all vehicles sold in 2012, according to a Mintel report.

According to Hybrid and Electric Cars – US – November 2012, the rapid sales growth in hybrid and electric vehicles makes the segment the fastest growing in the US for 2012.

The number of plug-in and electric models available to the public has nearly quadrupled in 2012, Mintel says, from three models in 2011, to the 11 available today.
