Yes. That's not bad, is it? Better % wise than most other countries around.
Norway and Sweden have special extreme incentives for EV's. Ours less so, and declining. Still EV's are on the rise.
Combined with our high relative population density it means the number of EV's per square km is relatively high, and so the charging structure is really dense.

Some stats:

I had a thing going I'd call the Tesla of the Day. The idea was that I was unable to do my commute without spotting at least one Tesla on the way. Initially it was tense, as I had some late sightings on the home stretch. But nowadays the S-es are so common, its not unusual to spot two at once.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
