As of September 30, 2021, Tennessee has officially registered 15,233 electric vehicles. This is one step closer to DriveElectricTN’s goal of 200,000 EVs by 2028!
This total number has increased by 1,422 EV registrations since June 2021.
According to Atlas EV Hub’s State EV Registration Data for Tennessee, the counties with the most registered EVs in the state are currently, Williamson, Davidson, Shelby, Knox and Rutherford. This data remains consistent with the data collected at the end of 2020.
The above 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.
Currently, there are more Tesla electric vehicles on the roads in Tennessee than any other vehicle make. However, this has the potential to change in the future. According to a recent CNBC article, “The influx of EVs — from a couple dozen today to estimates of hundreds of new models by 2025 — are expected to eat away at Tesla’s market share in the coming years,” reporter Michael Wayland wrote.
With more vehicle manufacturers committing to the electric vehicle revolution and more EV manufacturers moving to Tennessee, it is likely that these numbers will fluctuate in the next several years.
