CarMax Reveals Most Popular U.S. Locales for EVs

Feb. 22, 2019
There are over 4 million hybrids and electric vehicles on the road in the U.S. and that number appears to be growing, according to recent findings from CarMax.

Feb. 22, 2019—Californians are on track to buy more used hybrids this year at CarMax than anyone else, anywhere else.  Based on sales data, one in every three hybrids and EVs we sold in 2018 went to a CarMax customer in California.

Other top-selling states were Oregon, Washington and Arizona. States with the lowest sales of hybrids and EVs were Louisiana (1.57 percent), Mississippi (1.54 percent) and Delaware (1.44 percent).

There are over 4 million hybrids and electric vehicles on the road in the U.S. Growth of these vehicles is due to fluctuating fuel prices, Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) mandates and technology innovation.
