US sales of hybrids and plug-ins continued to hum along last month. They were substantially ahead of last year's figures as more people got comfortable plugging in with models including the Chevrolet Bolt EV, BMW i3, Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, and even the Volkswagen e-Golf.

Americans bought about 41,000 electrified cars in March, up 20 percent from a year earlier. More tellingly, plug-in vehicle sales surged about 58 percent to about 14,000 units.

Once again, the positive story – at least for green car advocates – is largely an American one. Notably, Ford's green car sales jumped 61 percent from a year earlier to 9,212 units. Fusion Hybrid sales almost tripled to 5,865 units, while Focus Electric sales almost quadrupled to 407 units.

General Motors' green car sales grew even faster at a 67 percent increase from a year earlier. Chevrolet Bolt sales hit 978 units, which was up slightly from the 952 sold in February, though short of the monthly record 1,162 sold in January. Chevy Volt extended-range plug-in sales rose 14 percent from a year earlier to 2,132 units.
