Visual Capitalist: The Best Selling Vehicle in Every State (2022)

This map shows the best selling vehicle in every U.S. state for 2022, based on data from Edmunds.

2022 Best Selling Vehicles by State

The main takeaway from the visualization is that trucks and SUVs are the top selling vehicle in every state but one. See below for the data in tabular format.

Best Selling Vehicle States
Chevrolet Silverado Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia, Wisconsin
Ford F-Series Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont
GMC Sierra Arkansas
Honda CR-V New Jersey
RAM Alaska, Nevada, Wyoming
Tesla Model Y California
Toyota Corolla Florida
Toyota RAV4 Connecticut, DC, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington
Toyota Tacoma Hawaii

From this list, we can see that the only state where a sedan is the best selling vehicle is Florida. This is unsurprising, given that sedan popularity has been waning in the U.S. for quite some time. This is due to various factors, including shifting consumer preferences and the improved fuel efficiency of trucks and SUVs.

EVs Gain a Foothold

Another interesting story from this map can be found in California, which is the first and only state where an EV, specifically the Tesla Model Y, is the best selling vehicle.

California leads the nation in terms of EV adoption, and coincidentally also has the largest number of Tesla charging stations at 366 (As of July 2023). The next two states in terms of Tesla charging stations are Florida (136) and Texas (128).

Other states that could soon see an EV become their best selling vehicle include Washington and DC. In both these jurisdictions, the Model Y is currently the second most popular vehicle.
