We wish it were easier to track state-by-state sales of plug-in vehicles. If it were, then we could see where the plug-in are being sold. Of course, California leads the way and the Pacific Northwest states are up there, too.
Public Chargers in Colorado
But how are we to know if plug-in vehicles sell well in the rest of the US?
Fortunately, every so often we come across some state figures.
This time it's Colorado that hit our radar.
As of this April, there were a total of 1,521 plug-in vehicles registered in Colorado.
Nearly two-thirds of those vehicles are registered between Castle Rock and Fort Collins (in and around the Denver metropolitan area).
The state has over 5 million registered vehicles.
Though 1,521 isn't bad, Colorado is really just now gearing up for plug ins. The state just got its first DC quick charger and is working hard to install dozens of additional Level 2 units.
Federal funding is being used in Colorado to ensure the future success of plug-in vehicles, so we expect to see that 1,521 figure climb quickly.
