Electric Cars: California Leads Nation In Green Vehicle Consumption

According to the classic stereotype, there are two things Californians love: the environment and their cars. So it’s no surprise that the state leads the nation at the point where those two interests intersect.

According to a report by automotive website, California drivers accounted for just under one-third of all electric vehicles purchased in the United States last year and about a quarter of all hybrids. Florida registered a distant second in both categories, with Sunshine State drivers purchasing 6.6 percent of all hybrids and plug-in electrics.

Another study conducted earlier this year by broke down buying habits by metro region and found that five of the top ten areas for green cars are in California. Unsurprisingly, the San Francisco Bay Area (including both Oakland and San Jose) leads the pack.

The best selling car in California is the hybrid Toyota Prius. Between January and September of of this year, 46,360 new Priuses hit California streets.
