Which States are Leading the Way for Electric Vehicles?

by | Feb 7, 2022 | 0 comments

One of the Biden Administrations goals was to have half of all vehicles sold to be electric vehicles by 2030. The biggest setback of this goal is getting EV charging to be more accessible to the public and affordable for businesses to provide. Most of the states have been getting on board with this goal by helping businesses set up the EV infrastructures and providing charging ports for long distance drivers.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, western states are in the lead in terms of the number of electric vehicles that are being registered. California and Hawaii take the lead with the highest number of electric vehicles in their states with Washington and Oregon behind them. Then Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado following. Midwestern states and some southern have the least amount of electric vehicle registrations per 1,000 people. States like Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina have less than one electric car registration per 1,000 people. Midwestern states such as North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska have similar statistics.

There are bills dedicated to creating funding that goes towards expanding the EV charging networks on a state and federal branch. A federal bill was just passed that gives billions of dollars to national charging stations and billions more dedicated to the states to assist with their efforts. State governors and senators are passing their own bills to stimulate the EV charging networks. Maryland governor has promoted extending the state’s tax credits to businesses installing EV chargers because it has since expired.
