Electric Cars Popular With Hawaii Residents

Hawaii residents are turning out to be fans of electric cars.

Although Hawaii ranked 41st in the country for overall new car registrations – in keeping with its rank of 40th in terms of population — the state ranks 10th in the country for sales of electric vehicles so far this year.

That translates into nearly 3% of all electric car sales nationwide occurring in Hawaii, according to Edmunds.com, an automotive information website.

Hawaii also buys a slightly higher percentage of hybrid vehicles, where it is ranked 33rd.

Edmunds.com said the trend nationally is toward increased sales of alternative fuel vehicles which made up 3.4% of new car registrations this year, up a full percentage point from 2011.
