Electric vehicle (EV) sales are picking up in Sonoma County. Over 1,500 plug-in hybrids and battery electric cars have been sold in the county since electric cars went on sale in 2010.
2014 set a new sales record for EVs in Sonoma with nearly half of all sales occurring in the last year. It also looks like 2015 is off to a good start, despite low gas prices. This January saw sales of EVs double from the year before.
This data comes from the Center for Sustainable Energy, which administers the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project for the State of California. You can check out the numbers for yourself on their great website, but we’ve gone ahead and crunched some of the most interesting stats for you (see below). Are you interested in buying an EV this year? What questions do you have?
