Green Guilt: Most Hybrid Owners Don't Buy One Again
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Auto owners looking to go green may want to take notice of a new report out by Edmunds.com noting hybrid owners don't repeat that purchase when looking for a new set of wheels.
That's not stopping brand new buyers from grabbing a fuel-efficient vehicle. According to Wards Auto, U.S. vehicles that averaged more than 30 miles per gallon accounted for 11.8% of all new car sales in the U.S. in March. That's up from 4.3% from the same time last year.
|The more carmakers focus on improving the gas mileage of non-hybrid vehicles, the more consumers are turning away from hybrids.|
It's what happens when hybrid owners want to buy a new car that makes the Edmunds report so interesting.
