Pull into the Redmond Freddie’s, Safeway or Walmart and it’s easy to assume that Redmond identifies more with pick-ups and SUV’s than EV (all electric) or hybrid vehicles. Drive into The Home Depot or Lowe’s and you’ll find that Redmond drivers are clearly more at home in that Chevy, Dodge or Ford truck just as dad or grandpa drove all those years.

Given its ranching and farming heritage, it’s understandable that drivers here would favor the heftier, multi-purpose usefulness of a light duty truck or roomy SUV. Years running, pickups are the best-selling passenger vehicles in America with Ford’s F-150 perennially at the top of the sales rankings, followed this year by Dodge Ram and the Chevrolet Silverado. Through November these models have sold a combined 1.25 million vehicles. Pickups held the number 11 and 12 spots too.
