Coastal states will lead plug-in vehicle adoption through 2022

Aloha, indeed. While California will unsurprisingly add the most plug-in vehicles out of any state over the next decade, Hawaii will have the highest number of plug-ins as a percentage of overall vehicle sales. That's the one-sentence summary of a recent study from Navigant Research (formerly Pike Research), which estimates that plug-in sales will increase by about 19 percent a year through 2022. And, while such a pace represents a slowdown of sorts (plug-in sales through August jumped 89 percent from a year earlier), if the numbers are accurate, then plug-in sales will easily outpace the growth rate of conventional vehicles.

The states with the fastest plug-in growth will be California, New York, Washington and Florida, meaning that BMW and Volkswagen, who are both about to enter the plug-in vehicle fray in the US, would do well to market themselves to those states. Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City will be the fastest-growing plug-in cities (not a surprise) while Oregon will make moves on Hawaii in the plug-ins-as-part-of-the-fleet over the next decade, so "Portlandia" fans can rejoice.

As for where these new plug-in buyers can charge up in public, California provides by far the most opportunity, accounting for 22 percent of the approximately 6,500 US public charging stations as of the end of August, according to the US Department of Energy. Check out Navigant's press release below.Continue reading Coastal states will lead plug-in vehicle adoption through 2022
