How many cars are in South Dakota?
My family is from South Dakota. Although I live in Minnesota now, I visit about once a year. One thing that blows my mind is that everyone seems to own two or three cars there for whatever reason. How many cars are in South Dakota?
Answer provided by
You’re right about everyone owning multiple cars in South Dakota. There are 147 cars per 100 residents—that’s the third-highest rate of car ownership in the country.
The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 1.3 million cars in South Dakota in 2020. Interestingly, the state saw the second-highest increase in car registrations in the country between 2015 and 2020, too.
With an additional 19.6% of vehicles on the road, South Dakota likely has more traffic than ever before.
