If you happen to be a map nerd, this will surely interest you: a US map that shows how hybrid sales cars are doing. The only problem is that the map only shows absolute values, but the page also shows the ratios for the 15 states with the most hybrids per capita. It's no surprise that the number of cars sold in states such as California, New York, Florida, Texas and Illinois, being the most populous states in the Union, are the states where the most hybrids were sold.

What else does the map reveal? Like the rest of the auto market, hybrid sales were also down this year. When it comes to ratios, California, Washington DC, Oregon, Washington (state) and Vermont are the places where hybrids are the most popular choice. Last but not least, you'll find a pie chart showing that 1 out of every 2 hybrids is a Toyota Prius and 3 out of every 4 hybrids are Toyotas.
