Here is a chart, which shows where plug-in car sales growth is the highest in the U.S.
According to the U.S. DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, the U.S. average growth rate for PEV per capita in the years 2016-2017 is 30.2%.
The highest growth of over 50% in relation to population was noted in three states:
- Vermont - 56.4%
- Maryland - ≈54%
- Massachusetts - ≈52%
- Alaska - ≈50%
- New Hampshire ≈50%
Georgia is the only state which noted a significant downturn. It's the result of ending the generous incentives, which previously made Georgia one of the top EV markets.
Note: PEV includes both all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
