USA Tesla Superchargers using the number of stalls at each Supercharger as part of the heatmap. -- (note Canada is not included in my heatmap)

Volts -- Voltstats.net heatmap (yes, I realize it is a small subset of Volts)
Aside: seems to be some visual correlation between *EV interested Volt (&Bolt) owners and where Tesla SCs are. Make sense as you would expect Tesla SCs to be where larger populations of Teslas are and travel thru (and other *EV owners)

Bolts -- Voltstats.net heatmap (yes, I realize it is a small subset of Bolts)

Spark EVs -- Voltstats.net heatmap (yes, I realize it is a small subset of Spark EVs)

Currently, 16 other states have either adopted, or are in the process of adopting, California's strict emissions standards. These states include New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, Florida, and several others.

Looks like you got the Spark EV confused with the Bolt EV:

But yes, it is a small subset. For instance, there are several that I personally know about in Las Vegas, yet not a single blip.

Actually, oddly enough, when I look at the Supercharger heatmap, it looks very, very similar to the Bolt EV heatmap in terms of distribution.

I can attest the Denver heat - I see a lot of Volts, Teslas, and Leafs here and a growing number of Bolts. There are a handful of i3s as well. There are a pair of "free" (campus parking permit required) L2 chargers (4 hr limit) outside my window at work and during the school year they are in continual use with other EVs and PHEVs sitting in the lot not being charged. The most common car at those two L2 stations are Leafs but Volts are a close second. I'm an early bird so my Volt gets charged every morning. :).

To my knowledge, New Hampshire isn't a CARB state, at least as of earlier this month when my mom (Vice Chair, State Legislative Finance Committee) and I discussed the Volt and EVs in general. She's convinced EVs will be the future but that the current technology won't get us there - too long to recharge for those who can't charge at home.

Also, Georgia is an interesting case study in what happens when rebates are removed. It actually does two negative things. First, puts EVs out of reach for those who were just short of being able to afford them. Second, it makes new EVs appear worse by comparison because they are now $5,000 more expensive than they used to be.

The Spark EV/i3 difference in Portland and Seattle is really interesting to me.

Which is unfortunate because you'll easily recoup that $5,000 in the first five years of ownership via less maintanence and lower "fueling" costs.
