Electric Vehicle Registrations
Electric and hybrid vehicle registrations in Florida account for approximately 1.9% of light-duty passenger vehicles registered (as of July 2020). This translates to approximately 312,000 electric and hybrid vehicles out of more than 16.5 million registered light-duty passenger vehicles. Currently, Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) account for most of these registrations at approximately 244,000 vehicles. However, the share of HEV registrations dropped from 3.0% in 2010 to 1.6% in 2020. During the same period, the share of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) increased from close to 0.0% to 1.0%.
There are three types of electric vehicles:
- Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) - run on gasoline and are not able to plug in to recharge
- Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) - run on either or both gasoline and electricity
- Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) - run exclusively on electricity
