Chevy Volt sales have been increasing (slowly, but steadily) over the past few months. From August to September, they increased by just 20 vehicles… but at least they followed an upward trend, and set a new sales record.

Sales in October were 2,961 and they could exceed 3,000 units in November.

Nissan Leaf sales also jumped up a bit. In June 2011, Nissan Leaf sales reached their highest number to date (1,708), and sales still haven’t surpassed that, but they soared to 1,579 in October from the hundreds that they were at in previous months.

Electric vehicle sales usually increase with high gas prices, and when gas prices go back down, it is business as usual, and sales decrease. Interestingly, though, gas prices have dropped since last month. Let’s hope the sales just keep on growing.
