Today, we are pleased to release the Bluegrass Vehicle Report 2009. Using state registration data, Lowell's compiled statistics on vehicles in seven Bluegrass counties. We've put the results together in a fun and informative format which shows details about the automotive marketplace in and around Lexington.
In addition, Lowell's is releasing Lowell's School Tools. School Tools is a companion guide to the report which helps teachers, parents, and student create their own fun and interesting findings from the automotive data. More about School Tools can be found here.
Among the more interesting results from the Report:
- Toyota is the #1 brand of vehicle in Lexington. The 33,624 Toyota vehicles on the road put Toyota ahead of both Ford (31,018) and Chevrolet (29,712). Toyota nameplates are on 15.4% of the cars on the road.
- A lot of Toyotas. All of those Toyotas, placed end-to-end, could fill all 4 lanes of New Circle Road, completely encircling Lexington.
- A lot of gas. Lexington drivers consumed over 156 million gallons of gasoline in 2008 — more than enough to fill Rupp Arena from floor to ceiling.
