ChargePoint, an EV infrastructure company with more than 20,000 charging spots in North America, recently compiled a list of the top 10 U.S. cities for electric cars based on the number of vehicles registered and available charging stations. So what city came out on top?Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 1.15.34 PM

The San Francisco Bay Area claimed the number one spot, which encompasses Oakland and San Jose, as well as the city of San Francisco itself. Los Angeles came in a strong second, leaping four spots from its previous position of sixth. Seattle, San Diego, and Honolulu round out the top five.

With its EV friendly atmosphere, staunch approach to reducing greenhouse gases, and pro plug-in legislation, it’s no shock that three out of the five top spots came from California. The Golden State has a long history of forward thinking behavior and this certainly solidifies its reputation as a trailblazing state.

The complete list: 1) San Francisco, 2) Los Angeles, 3) Seattle, 4) San Diego, 5) Honolulu, 6) Austin, 7) Detroit, 8) Atlanta, 9) Denver, 10) Portland. It appears the West Coast has been the earliest adopters of Electric Vehicles. Let’s hope the rest of the nation, particular the highly populated Northeast Corridor, catches up soon.
