    Wired has a small article about how 5 US cities have more than half the electric vehicles in the country. Seattle is #3.

    BAH! Small potatoes!

    Once I take delivery of my Model S, Paxson* is going to have far and away the highest percentage of electric vehicles on a per household basis of any town on the planet. So there!


    * Do not believe what you may read regarding our population. We haven't anywhere near the 32 residents claimed. There are, in fact, only about 6 full-time human residents here. Caribou are a different matter...

    To state the obvious, I think all those count as Seattle. And it was based on percentage of total US EV ownership, not percentage of all local cars that are EVs. Given that Seattle is the smallest city in the top 5, I'd say that's a pretty good showing.
