In the resale market, you will find that used electric vehicles are great deals. While used electric vehicles tend to have lower average resale values than their gasoline counterparts, some models retain their good values. Because used EVs suffer from a major cut in faster depreciation in the first couple of years than traditional cars. With that said, used electric vehicle ownerships can be extremely affordable. Another plus of EVs is that they require less maintenance, with fewer complex mechanical parts less repair or replacement will be required. Buying a used electric vehicle in 2022? Check out the best electric vehicle deals at Carnex.
