Study: Wisconsin at bottom for encouraging electric car ownership
In a report compiled by the Consumer Choice Center on electric vehicle accessibility, Wisconsin scored in the bottom nine of all states. The report scores all 50 states based on how difficult it is to buy an EV taking into account direct-to-consumer sales or requirements for extra registration fees or road charges. The lowest on the list along with Wisconsin are Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Carolina, and West Virginia. States scoring highest for EV ease of ownership are Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. All these states allow direct sales of cars to individuals, and none require additional registration fees.
