How many cars are registered in Tennessee?

I’m about to move to Nashville with my boyfriend and I’m kind of nervous about driving there. Does Tennessee have a lot of cars? Should I sell my car before I move?

There are 2,115,632 cars registered in the state of Tennessee, which puts it in the top 50% of U.S. states when it comes to car population.
If you do bring your car to Nashville, though, just try to avoid driving during rush hour if you want to stay out of traffic. While traffic can be bad at any time of day, delays are at their worst from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Nashville.
If you do decide to sell your car, you’ll be able to get around using the bus system. However, Nashville’s public transportation system doesn’t reach every neighborhood, so you might have some difficulties getting around without a car if you don’t live and work in a well-populated area.
Once you make the move, you’ll need to update your insurance to reflect your new address. Check out the Jerr​​y app, where you can see a list of policy quotes that work for you in minutes. The average user saves over $800 per year!
