Count Electric Vehicles on Independence Day
Help Plug In America count electric vehicles (EVs) from coast to coast on Independence Day 2019
Celebrate your freedom from oil this Independence Day! Plug In America is organizing the first annual Independence Day EV Count. Inspired by the National Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count, we invite you, EV drivers and supporters, to get out into your neighborhood and count how many EVs you see.
How it works:
- On the 4th of July, go for a walk in your neighborhood and count how many all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles you see, compared to the total number of cars you see. We recommend counting 100 total cars if you can, but feel free to count as many or as few as you like! Reference our Electric Vehicle Guide to see the EVs currently available.
- Return to the Plug In America website and fill out a short form to indicate the total number of cars counted and, of those, how many were all-electric vehicles and how many were plug-in hybrid vehicles.
- We will then report back to you the results of the count, including breakdowns by state.
While this isn’t a scientific study, it’s a fun opportunity to count how many of your neighbors are driving electric. And we plan to continue this project in future years on Independence Day, so we can see, over time, the growth of EVs across the nation!
Refer to Plug In America’s Electric Vehicle Guide to see Electric and Plug-In Hybrid (electric and combustion) vehicles currently available.
