Environmentally friendly vehicles are very popular with politicians right now. Consumers, however, have been somewhat slower to embrace such vehicles, which tend to cost more.
Online car-buying resource provider Cars.com surveyed data from its website to determine which U.S. cities have the largest and smallest numbers of eco-friendly car buyers.
It determined the rankings by calculating the number and location of Cars.com users who performed searches for vehicles that get more than 40 miles per gallon.
Not surprisingly, California car shoppers were the most interested in fuel-efficient, green vehicles. Southerners, by contrast, expressed the least interest in such vehicles.
Here are Cars.com’s lists of the cities with the most and least interest in green cars:
