This just in...Hawaii is on course to become the US' annual plug-in vehicle sales leaders by 2022.
According to Navigant Research, this is how it will all play out:
Navigant Research projects that California, New York, Washington, and Florida will lead the way in PEV sales in the United States. By 2022, Hawaii is expected to have the highest concentration of annual PEV sales (in terms of percentage of overall vehicle sales in the state), followed by California and Oregon. Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City are anticipated to have the largest sales of PEVs through the forecast period.
Wonky Graphic That Goes With the Story But Doesn't Include a Mention of Hawaii
What's going on with our neighbors to the north (aka Canadians)? Here's what Navigant says will happen there:
"In Canada, the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia will account for 97% of Canadian PEV sales by 2022 (they also account for 75% of the Canadian population). The cities of Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver will lead Canadian PEV sales."
Lastly, there's this from Navigant:
"Navigant Research forecasts PEVs will reach 416,153 annual sales in the United States and 230,479 in Canada by 2022."
We're so looking forward to 2022.
