Consumer Electric Vehicle Distribution by State
To identify the consumer electric vehicle distribution by state in the United States.
- There are three main categories of electric vehicles (EVs). These are BEV (battery electric vehicles), PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) and HEV (hybrid electric vehicles).
- Another category of electric vehicles is the fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). These vehicles are powered by hydrogen.
- Examples of BEVs are Tesla Model 3, BMW i3, Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan LEAF, Hyundai Ioniq, Kia Soul, Tesla Model S, Tesla X, and Volkswagen e-Golf.
- Examples of PHEVs are Chevrolet Volt, Chrysler Pacifica, Ford Fusion Energi, Mercedes GLC350e, Mini Cooper SE Countryman, BMW i8, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Porsche Panamera S E-hybrid, and Toyota Prius Prime.
- Examples of HEVs are Toyota Prius Hybrid, Honda Civic Hybrid and Toyota Camry Hybrid.
- Examples of PCEVs are Honda Clarity Fuel Cell, Hyundai Nexo and Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle.
- According to statistics from the Alliance of Auto Manufacturers, from 2011-2019 there were a total of 677,324 BEVs, 528,838 PHEVs, 3,094,280 HEVs and 5,800 FCEVs. These numbers are for light duty vehicles (class 1 and class 2).
- The total light duty vehicles BEVs by state for California
, New York, Washington, Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Colorado
, Oregon and Illinois have been presented in this spreadsheet.
Summary of Findings
During the first hour of research, the definition for the four categories of electric vehicles (that is, BEVs, PHEVs, HEVs, and FCEVs) was provided. Additionally, examples of these categories of EVs was provided. Also, the total number of light duty (class 1 through class 2) EVs for the United States was found. A project spreadsheet was created and the total number of light duty HEVs as entered for 10 states.
