One of every 100 cars in the state is now an electric vehicle — and that doesn’t include hybrids.
Where are they?
NJ101.5 crunched the numbers.
Here are the ZIP codes that have the most registered EVs:
- Princeton (08540): 1,019;
- Monroe Township (08831): 727;
- Edison (08820): 585;
- Lakewood (08701): 561;
- Livingston (07039): 528.
Interestingly, none of those five ZIP codes are in the county that has the most EVs.
Here’s that list:
- Bergen: 11,606;
- Middlesex: 8,719;
- Essex: 7,504;
- Monmouth: 7,180;
- Morris: 5,965.
While those counties have the most registered EVs, Somerset County has the highest percentage of registered EVs. In Somerset, 4,943 of its 248,836 cars are EVs, good for 1.99%.
Bergen had the second-highest percentage, at 1.67%.
