Top Electric Car States — Which Has The Highest Percentage Of Electric Cars?
Walking around little towns in the Appalachians this summer, I was happy to see a few refreshing electric cars. In fact, one day in the tiny town of Bryson City, NC, I walked by four electric cars in a small parking lot that only held four cars. This is steep mountain country. How pleasant to find electrics showing brightly at the foothills of the Appalachians. It game me confirmation that folks are catching on to improved forms of transit.
In San Francisco, LA, and San Diego, I expect you’d see a ton of fresh-spirited electric cars spinning around town. However, surprisingly, California comes in third in terms of electric vehicles per total auto sales. It falls behind somewhat further north Washington and progressive Hawaii. Much further behind is New York, “which has one of the highest sales rate in the country, yet ranks 25th in terms of EV market share,” according to Edmunds, which also supplies this interesting chart (top 10 and bottom 10 states in terms of EV market share):
