How many cars are in Tennessee?

After moving from Illinois to Tennessee, my mind was blown that the car registration fee is only $21.50. It costs $151 in Illinois. But even at $21.50, I’m sure the state government still makes quite a bit off car owners. How many cars are there in Tennessee?

The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 5.85 million cars in Tennessee in 2020. By crunching the numbers, you’d find that Tennessee earns about $125.8 million each year through car registration fees.
