2021 Independence Day EV Count Results

The results of the 2021 Independence Day EV Count are in! Every year during the 4th of July weekend, Plug In America supporters take a stroll around their neighborhoods to count how many all-electric and plug-in hybrids they can spot. Across the United States, we counted 11,568 vehicles, of which 707 (6.11%) were electric. All-electric vehicles made up 3.82% and plug-in hybrids made up 2.29%. 

We had a record number of EVs reported this year! Back in 2019, supporters reported 4.14%, and in 2020 they reported 5.30%.

The chart below breaks down results by state, including only those in which at least 100 total vehicles were counted. The states with the highest percentage of EVs counted were Arizona, Colorado, Texas, California, and Maryland.

Please note: The Independence Day EV Count is not a scientific study and is not based on a representative sample, so these results are not necessarily reflective of the actual rates of plug-in vehicles across America. However, it is fun to see how the number of EVs in our supporters’ neighborhoods has increased the past couple of years and we hope to see more EVs on the road for next year! 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 Independence Day EV Count!
