Tesla Model S Prototype
According to the Hawaii Automobile Dealers Association, 388 electric vehicles were registered in the state during the first half of 2013.
Not in Hawaii
Of those 388, 94 were Tesla Model S sedans. That means that, despite its high price tag, nearly one out of every 4 electrics registered during the first 6 months of 2013 were Teslas.
Of the 94, 72 were registered in Q2 of 2013, leaving only 22 to be registered in Q1.
The numbers seem to show that Model S popularity and availability is rapidly rising in Hawaii.
Looking back in the past, we see that 341 electric vehicles were registered in Hawaii in 2012, 338 in 2011, 2 in 2010, 15 in 2009 and 15 in 2008.
