Cars.com Releases Greenest Cities List, Ranking Popularity of Hybrids Among Car Shoppers

Cars.com has been compiling data on users who research hybrid vehicles, and ranking America’s “greenest” metro areas according to the number of people who research hybrid cars, trucks, SUVs and crossovers. No surprise that the winner was the San Francisco-San Jose-Oakland metro area, known for being a hot bed of progressive politics, organic food and other connotations used in conjunction with the stereotypical hybrid driver. While the list was skewed heavily towards the West Coast, Madison, Wisconsin, Gainsville, Florida and (interestingly) Glendive, Montana managed to crack the Top 10 list.

Of the bottom 10 locales, 9 of them were from Texas, Mississippi or Louisiana. While cars have hardly been conflated with any sort of political science research, the findings suggest that the Red State/Blue State dichotomy might be a little more accurate than previously though.

    Thanks so much for the post! I just love my GMC, and I think it is green enough to please everyone. I just love it and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
