How many cars are in Hawaii?

I went on a trip to Hawaii recently and I was surprised by how many cars are actually on the road. Traffic was even a bit hectic at times, especially compared to other islands I’ve been to. How many cars are in Hawaii?

Even though Hawaii has a declining population, there’s lots of traffic between residents, tourists, and service people stationed there. In fact, it’s seen a 1.1.% increase in car registrations in recent years.
There are 1.25 million cars in Hawaii, per 2020 U.S. Census data. The uptick is most likely due to rental companies increasing the sizes of their fleets or residents purchasing an additional car.
Side note: Hawaii has the worst traffic of any state in the country. This isn’t necessarily tied to the number of cars on the road, though—tourists and poor infrastructure both lead to a more dangerous driving experience. So, use caution if you’re driving here.
