Most Popular New Car for Each State
Ever wonder what’s the most popular car in your home state? Well, the folks at IHS Automotive, a market research firm, wondered the exact same thing. Through empirical research, it found the most popular new vehicles registered in each state by individual retail customers for the year 2014.
Yahoo Autos notes “the unexpected geographic outlines, many of which follow old college sports conference boundaries; in Big Ten land, Chevy rules, while Ford has the Big 12 to itself and Toyota dominates the old Southeastern Conference.”
While trucks are immensely popular in the interior, the coasts, tell a different story. Honda and Toyota reign supreme considering most buyers near the Pacific or Atlantic opt for more fuel efficient options. In fact, all of California’s top-five selling vehicles, for 2014, were either Honda or Toyota.
