Washington is top state for owning an electric vehicle

A new LendingTree study found the Evergreen State is the best state in the country to own an electric vehicle.

Washington state has the third-most electric vehicle registrations relative to miles traveled, LendingTree found. It also has the fourth-lowest average price of electricity for residential users.

Five metrics were used for the study: number of charging ports, fatality rates, electric vehicle registrations, availability of tax credits and the cost of electricity.

Utah was ranked No. 2 in the study, while Mississippi took home the No. 50 slot.
