Green Car Advisor - June 3, 2010

U.S. sales of hybrid cars and trucks did well in May, reach­ing their best num­bers since last August. They increased 18.7% from April to May, com­pared to 12.5% for con­ven­tion­al­ly-pow­ered vehi­cles. Much of the bump came from the Prius, Ford Fusion hybrid, and the lim­it­ed-mar­ket Nis­san Alti­ma hybrid.
