Map: Hybrid And Electric Sales Across The Country | NPR

Hybrids and electrics account for less than 3 percent of all cars sold in the U.S. this year, but that ratio is higher in some areas. The San Francisco Bay Area leads the nation with 8.4 percent of all cars sold and the rest of the top 10 markets are also on the West Coast.” I worked on this TileMill-based interactive map of hybrid and electric auto sales in the U.S., based on data from Edmunds.com and R.L. Polk and Co. This goes with an NPR series on fuel economy, “Getting to 55 MPG.”
