    Unfortunately for the purpose of AN's sales charts, Ford does not break down the plug-in v. regular hybrid C-Max. But here in the States, those are the only versions we get. So it qualifies for my chart.

    The C-MAX Energi is not selling yet. Last rumor I heard was that they were to hit dealer lots this month.

    So the 969 is only the hybrid version. Pretty good start for them regardless, though!

    Edit: I do see that cars.com has at least 1 Energi in stock that appears to be an actual car, so perhaps they are rolling out now?

    Very interesting. Does anybody know what GreenCarReports uses as their source(s) for the plug-in variants sales figures, as quoted in the article linked? As noted Automotive News' data are sometimes limited in that regard.

    Norwegian EV sales hits 5.2% of total car sales!

    Looks like a dedicated EV park & charge spot with multiple SAE DC QC, CHAdeMO, J17772 and/or Mennekes plugs. Check the video to get an idea: Ishavsveien presents the worlds first universal charging station for EVs on Vimeo.

    I was reading Wikipedia where sales of PiP were mentioned. They provided Wall Street Journal and Green Car Reports as their sources.

    I guess if you full time auto journalist, you know lots of people from major automakers. And one could call or email them directly, I mean after all that is a job of PR people too... So it do not have to be only something that was published by company in press release and such. Lots of time journalists could get more insights or additional details. But this is my guess.
