This chart shows the vehicle registration counts of all-electric vehicles (EVs) by state as of December 31, 2018. California has the greatest population of EVs and accounts for approximately 47% of the overall population. Washington state has the second highest population, followed by Florida. These numbers loosely reflect the EV purchase incentives in given states (see Electric Vehicle Laws and Incentives by State) and state population.
