Number Of Registered Plug-In Vehicles In Vermont Increased By 240% In Past Year
Today on InsideEVs, we present some plug-in electric vehicle registration data for the state of Vermont:
- As of April 2014, over 630 plug-in electric vehicles were registered in Vermont
- At the end of April 2013, only 263 plug-in electric vehicles were registered in Vermont
- Year-over-year, that’s a 240% increase in the number of registered plug-in electric vehicles
Those in Vermont credit the uptake to low maintenance and fueling costs, the federal tax credits and more widespread availability of plug-in electric vehicles.
Recently, Vermont introduced a $500 instant rebate on the purchase or lease of plug-in electric vehicles. We suspect that will lead to increased registrations too.
