Think US EV-Ready Cities Announced

Norwegian electric vehicle manufacturer Think released today a list of 15 cities which it considers the most EV-ready in the US. According to Think's list, the most EV-friendly city in the US is Los Angeles, followed closely by another West coast location, San Francisco, San Diego, Portland and Sacramento were rated fifth, sixth and seventh putting four cities in California in the top 15 list.

The top ten is completed by Newark, Seattle and Atlanta, while the last five cities eligible for Think city cars are Denver, Boston, Washington, DC, Philadelphia and Phoenix.

According to Think, the list is a measure of which markets are most likely to begin and benefit from the transition to electric vehicles, providing an objective comparison of the EV purchase and usage incentives as well as the market fit for EV’s.

“We expect that the roll-out of EV’s to the U.S. market will be quite focused in the early stages. Some cities are more likely to be early adopters of EV technology, and the EV-Ready Cities Index will be a helpful tool to guide and prioritize the development of those markets," Think CEO Richard
Canny said at the Electric Drive Transportation Association Annual Conference and Meeting at the Washington Auto Show.

"It reflects the available government support, consumer acceptance, and the opportunity for EVs to provide the maximum benefits possible from electric drive,” Canny said. “Since EVs are a unique solution for congested urban environments, we are taking a city-by-city approach rather than a national or state-by-state approach.”
