That's ~1500 units in total for 2011 with only two months to go. I assume that they just started stocking 2012 models in the past few weeks so perhaps that explains the slow sales in September & October.

There's a huge qty of listings for cars on craigslist. Huge numbers. I had my 451 listed there for 6 months and had less than 5 e-mails and but one test pilot. And that was priced to sell.Also note, how many of the 2011 cars are car2go (Vancouver) related? 200 I guess...It's great to see the numbers still hang on to the original projections.
