Hybrid Car Sales fall as gas prices fall and the economy slides.

Americans have cut back on buying cars of all types as the economy continues to slide. This slowdown is even more evident in the hybrid car category. With the decline in gas prices from the $3.50 to $4.20 range down to the current $1.75 to $1.95 range the interest in hybrid cars has also fallen.

Car Sales have collapsed as consumers refuse to pay a premium for fuel-efficient vehicles:
    • Nissan Altima Hybrid down 70%
    • Ford Escape Hybrid down 39%
    • Toyota Camry Hybrid down 58%
    • Toyota Highlander Hybrid down 65%
    • Honda Civic Hybrid down 68%

We Americans have a short memory and are very fickle. Word of warning! People don’t loose the focus to save money and become less dependent on foreign oil. The country is headed for big time inflation and another wave of higher gas prices.

2009 – From a price perspective, this really is the best time to buy a car. Automobile Inventories will be down at year end , 2009 and the terrific deals on 2009 models will be over. The economy will turn around because all recessions end.

Timing is everything and if you’re in the market for a new car, good timing can actually save you money. There are many times throughout the year when there are excellent deals on new cars. It seems, everywhere you turn, there are calendar year-end deals, model year-end deals, discounts, rebates, and other promotions.

So, when is the best time to buy and can consumers take advantage of these deals?

Now is the time to buy! 2009 – there will never be a better time to buy a car. There are big incentives out there and dealers are discounting like crazy as they try to get aging inventory off their lots.

Auto sales are forecast to stay low until at least the end of 2009.

And while some think car prices will continue to drop, they probably won’t. Manufacturers have been drastically cutting production. That means that inventories will get lower, manufacturers will have less need to pile on incentives and dealers won’t be as worried about getting cars off their lots quickly.

2009 – from a price perspective, this really is the best time to buy.
