The Best States to Own an Electric Vehicle, Ranked
  • EV Charger Reviews evaluated the most electric vehicle-friendly states.
  • They evaluated states based on factors including electricity costs and state tax credits.
  • Maine was ranked the top state for EVs, followed by Colorado and Vermont.

Around 8% of all cars sold last year were electric vehicles. That’s 1.2 million EVs sold in the US alone in 2023.

As more car owners make the switch to sustainable energy, the infrastructure around EV ownership becomes factored into decisions like choosing a place to live and buying a home.

The electric-vehicle resource website EV Charger Reviews determined the best states to own an electric vehicle by studying the same factors in each state: the number of registered EVs, electricity cost, the number of electric vehicles per charging port, tax credit amounts, annual gas savings, the ratio of a square mile per one charging port, and the number of electric vehicles per service center.

EV Charger Reviews used data from sources such as the US Department of Energy, the US Census Bureau, and the US Energy Information Administration to evaluate the EV factors in all 50 states. Each factor was assigned a numerical score and ranking, which helped determine the states’ overall scores.

Here are the top 10 most EV-friendly states.
