It’s not an easy thing to find.

Our only recourse so far is to the MOR-EV Program (website:, which provides a variety of information about the adoption and distribution of electric vehicles in Massachusetts. Not all electric vehicles are captured as not every electric vehicle owner applies for a MOR-EV rebate. Neither does it show which of these vehicles are presently on the road.

But it gives us an idea of how popular EVs are becoming in Wayland, and around. Between January 2017 and January 2019, no less than 131 Waylanders applied for an EV rebate. That is compared to 137 in Concord, 137 in Natick, 113 in Sudbury, 123 in Weston and  76 in Lincoln. The only town that beats Wayland is Concord, with 65 EVs.

With 2.724% of households with an EV, Wayland is surpassed only by Weston (3.308% of households). In all of Middlesex County, only .9911% of households has an EV (rebate).

Not bad, Wayland! Let’s keep it up and show Massachusetts how clean transportation is done!
