Forget EVs, These Are the Real Winners In The U.S. Auto Market

Hybrid car sales trumped its electric counterparts in 2021 even as legacy auto makers intensified their push towards battery-powered vehicles.

U.S. sales of hybrid vehicles fired up to 801,550 vehicles last year, outnumbering the 434,879 electric vehicles sold in 2021, according to a Reuters report that cited data from research firm Wards Intelligence.

Hybrid car sales rose 76% in 2021 which adds up to about 5% of the overall U.S light vehicle sales auto compared to an 83% jump in EV sales, albeit on a smaller base number. The EV represented 3% of the market.
