Electric Vehicles: We’re #1!

We’ve all heard the statistic: There are more Teslas in Westport than anywhere else in the state.

That’s not all we lead in, electric vehicularly speaking.

According to Westport-based EV Club of CT, we top the state in the number of electric vehicles per capita. Weston, Woodbridge, New Canaan and Greenwich fill out the Top 5.

But it’s not just “per capita.” Our town registers the 3rd highest total number of EVs overall. Greenwich and Stamford are 1st and 2nd, respectively; Fairfield and West Hartford follow us.

The club notes that over the past 6 months, registration of all types of electric vehicles has grown by 26%.

Tesla is responsible for 65% of the number — and the Model 3 accounts for 84% of that increase.

Tesla is followed by Hyundai (9%) and Toyota (6%).
