Map: Red For BEVs, Blue For PHEVs
Georgia sure does love them BEVs! Well, with the state’s $5,000 credit now gone, we suspect that Georgia will turn less red in the coming months, but it’s clear from this map that the state was the leader of the nation in BEV adoption (versus PHEV).
The map comes to us via EVSE maker, ClipperCreek with this description:
“Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) include both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) which run only on electricity, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) which run on electricity and/or gasoline. Considering all PEVs within a state in 2014, the map below shows states with a greater share of BEVs in red and states with a greater share of PHEVs in blue. Those states where the BEVs and PHEVs are near 50/50 are a neutral color. Georgia had by far the highest percentage of BEVs (84%) of total PEVs. Generous state incentives for purchasing a BEV in Georgia likely account for this high percentage.”
