Which states buy the most EVs?


States and EV growth

Based on recent data, the states that see the most EVs (electric vehicles) sold in the U.S. are:

  1. California: California is far and away the largest EV market in America, with almost 50% of all EV sales in the country. The state has long been a leader in clean energy and environmental policies and has implemented a number of incentives to encourage the adoption of EVs, including rebates and access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes. In 2021, over 148,000 EVs were sold in California, accounting for 53% of all EV sales in the US.
  2. Texas: While California leads the way in terms of overall EV sales, Texas is the fastest-growing market for EVs. The state has implemented a number of policies to encourage EV adoption, including tax incentives, and has a growing network of charging stations. Texas saw a significant increase in EV sales in 2021, with over 25,000 EVs sold. This represents a 174% increase compared to the previous year.
  3. Florida: Florida is the third-largest market for EVs in the US, with a growing number of EV owners in cities like Miami and Orlando. The state has also implemented a number of incentives to encourage EV adoption, including tax credits and access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes. Florida also saw a significant increase in EV sales in 2021, with over 24,000 EVs sold. This represents a 105% increase compared to the previous year.
  4. New York: New York is a growing market for EVs, with a number of incentives in place to encourage adoption. The state has set a goal of having 850,000 zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025. New York saw a steady increase in EV sales in 2021, with over 22,000 EVs sold.
  5. Washington: Washington is another state with a strong market for EVs, thanks in part to its clean energy policies and incentives for EV owners. The state has a growing network of charging stations, and EV sales have been increasing rapidly in recent years. Washington saw a significant increase in EV sales in 2021, with over 19,000 EVs sold. This represents a 100% increase compared to the previous year.

Other states with a significant market for EVs include Hawaii, Oregon, Illinois, Colorado, Arizona, and Massachusetts. However, overall, EV adoption remains relatively low in the US compared to other countries, with EVs accounting for only a small percentage of total vehicle sales.

What about Maine?

It’s important to note that these sales numbers represent new EVs sold, and don’t account for the total number of EVs on the road in each state. However, these states are leading the way in terms of EV adoption and are likely to continue to do so as EV technology continues to improve and become more widely available.
