Through the Open Vehicle Registration Initiative, Atlas works with states directly to make data on electric vehicle registrations publicly accessible. This page contains the data from states participating in the initiative in some form. If you’re interested in learning more, send an email to email@example.com.
“We participate in this effort because we believe easy access to vehicle registration is essential to our program design and evaluation.”
We are guided by the following principles in an effort to make vehicle registration data more accessible to the public policy community:
- Public policy professionals should have access to vehicle registration data in a way that protects privacy and enables effective public policies and programs.
- Accurate: If individual vehicle registration data is unavailable, then registrations should be aggregated to the ZIP code level per month in a way that the vehicle make, model, and fuel type can be determined.
- Accessible: Vehicle registration datasets should be downloadable in a common format on a publicly accessible website.
- Timely: Datasets should be updated on as frequent a basis as possible, ideally monthly or quarterly.
Atlas will not resell any raw data received from public agencies. Atlas may use aggregated versions of the data to serve our customers. For the purposes of sharing and reusing the data (“State EV Registration Database”) posted on this page, please see the license below.

About the Electric Vehicle Registration Data Format
With the sharing of these data, we have to balance the (potentially competing) needs to make the data accessible, consistent across states, and flexible. States are not consistent in how they can share these data, so we’re not able to make the datasets completely apples-to-apples.
