How many cars are in Mississippi?

Unlike most of the other places I’ve lived, Mississippi doesn’t have a ton of urban areas. As a result, I feel like the state doesn’t have a lot of traffic either. But it definitely made me wonder how many people have cars here. How many cars are there in Mississippi?

Mississippi has a declining rate of car ownership, falling by 0.5% over the last five years**. The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 2.05 million cars in Mississippi in 2020.
Overall, the state has the third-lowest rate of car ownership per capita in the United States with just 69 cars per 100 residents. Only New Jersey, New York, and Washington, D.C. rank lower.
