By now, most of you know that we’ve all been there.
You buy your first vehicle, you buy your next, and so on.
But do you know what the last vehicle you ever owned was?
You probably didn’t, but it’s a good bet that you have.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2011, the number of vehicles owned by U.C. Berkeley students reached 563,946.
In contrast, the UCR-Berkeley campus had a population of only about 9,500.
But the numbers don’t tell the whole story.
Here’s how they break down.
To understand how many vehicles you might have owned, you’ll have to get to know your family.
For this, we’ve compiled a handy chart.
Here are the details:First car: The first vehicle you bought or leased, in any model, any year.
It’s usually a manual transmission, but a hybrid may be considered as well.
Second car: Any of the following: an all-electric vehicle, an electric or hybrid vehicle, a plug-in hybrid, a gas-powered vehicle, or a hybrid electric vehicle.
Third car: A hybrid electric or electric vehicle with no engine, such as a hydrogen fuel cell, electric-only car, or hybrid electric car with no gasoline engine.
Fourth car: All vehicles that were built before 1999, and include any vehicle that’s been modified since 1999.
Fifth car: An electric or a gas powered vehicle, regardless of whether it’s been a hybrid, electric or gas-fueled vehicle.
Sixth car, and seventh car: Hybrid or electric vehicles with no gas engine, or all electric vehicles.
A hybrid electric, electric vehicle or electric-powered car.
The numbers we’re talking about are actually from the U of C’s Department of Statistics, and the data comes from the Census Bureau’s “National Household Survey on Household Vehicles.”
Here’s the full breakdown:First vehicle:The number of people who own at least one vehicle, either a manual or an electric vehicle, since the first one.
A manual transmission is the first vehicle ever owned, and all electric and hybrid vehicles were included in that count.
The Census Bureau estimates that about 13% of U.U. Berkeley’s students were in the UU-Berchines first vehicle.
The rest were in a hybrid or electric or other type of vehicle.
The remaining 6% were in at least two vehicles.
The number is subject to change, as data is gathered every three years.
