Even though California boasts the most electric car owners in the United States by far with over 77,000 registered vehicles, the Atlanta metropolitan area is the country's fastest growing market.

Follow up:

Last March, the state of Georgia had 1,469 registered electric vehicles and that number skyrocketed to 10,482 by March 2014, an incredible 614 percent increase.

Why are people buying so many electric vehicles in Georgia? The state's $5,000 tax credit is an obvious factor but Atlanta's urban sprawl is also making electric vehicles increasingly attractive to commuters. Most people drive to work alone across the city for a mean time of 30 minutes. If you own an electric vehicle, you can use HOV lanes to skip past the traffic. Additionally, you can also avoid HOT tolls on top of all the other savings your electric car affords you.

This chart shows registered electric vehicles and percentage growth in the United States.
