Arizona Ranks Among Top Half Of States In Electric Vehicles

National drive electric week is drawing to a close. Advocates of electric cars have been talking up their benefits across the country.

Numbers from the U.S. Energy Information Administration released last year show Arizona had one to two electric vehicles per thousand registered vehicles — that’s in the top half nationwide. California and Washington led the way.

Will Toor, transportation program director for the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project, spoke more on Arizona’s place in the electric vehicle landscape.
