As of December 31, 2021, Tennessee has officially registered 16,902 electric vehicles. This is one step closer to DriveElectricTN’s goal of 200,000 EVs by 2028!
This total number has increased by 1,669 EV registrations since September 2021.
According to Atlas EV Hub’s State EV Registration Data for Tennessee, there were 11,277 battery-electric vehicles (BEV) and 5,625 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) on the roads at the end of 2021.
As expected, the counties with the most registered EVs in the state are still Williamson, Davidson, Shelby, Knox and Rutherford. However, Hamilton County’s (903 EVs) numbers are growing quickly to match Rutherford County’s (972 EVs) numbers.
The “EVs on the Road by Vehicle Make and Model” graph shows the difference between the number of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) versus the number of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on the roads in Tennessee.
Along with this, the top 12 vehicles on the road have shifted slightly from September 2022.
Volkswagen’s electric vehicle presence is growing in the state to overtake Honda for the 12th spot according to Atlas EV Hub’s data.
The above graph shows the year-end totals for electric vehicles (a total of BEVs and PHEVs) across the last three years in Tennessee. In 2019, the year-end total was 9,660 EVs registered in the state. This increased by 7,242 EVs for a total of 16,902 on TN roads by the end of 2021.
