USA: Hawaii Leads US in Electric Car Purchases

Hawaii leads the nation in uptake of electric cars (EVs), because it’s gone full steam ahead on charging stations.

There’s now one charging station for every 5500 residents, reports The Honolulu Star-Advertiser. And with the infrastructure in place, residents are buying electric cars at 10 times the average rate for U.S. drivers.

Out of 35,531 vehicles sold last year in Hawaii, 422 are EVs, or 1.2%. On a national level, EV sales were 0.1% with 17,345 sold out of 12.8 million total of cars and light trucks.
