The Best-Selling Vehicle in Each State

Today's map comes from Alex Davies and Mike Nudelman of Business Insider and shows the best-selling car or truck in each state last year. Mostly trucks.

I was a little confused about Oklahoma's love affair with the Nissan Altima. In a Reddit discussion about this map, someone brought up the fact that the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group is based in Tulsa, and perhaps their purchases skewed the Oklahoma data. Or maybe there really are just a lot of Altimas cruising around Sooner country.

The Afternoon Map is a semi-regular feature in which we post maps and infographics. In the afternoon. Semi-regularly. Thanks to Business Insider for this one.
