Ever wondered how many Electric Vehicles there are in Wayland?

It’s not an easy thing to find. Our only recourse so far is to the MOR-EV Program (website: mor-ev.org/program-statistics), 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.
