A quick check on sales numbers on electric vehicles for August seems to lead to more questions than answers. Though GM sold an August record of 2,813 Chevy Volts, a push by dealers to clear vehicles ASAP could be a foreboding sign. Sales of Nissan (NSANY.OB) Leafs moved back higher, up 75% M/M, but are still are a just a shadow of their high-flying days from a year ago. Meanwhile, Toyota (TM) moved a solid 750 plug-in Prius vehicles in August, while Mitsubishi's (MMTOY.PK) EV sales lagged. As for Tesla Motors (TSLA), the focus is still on supply instead of demand.
