Used Electric Vehicles

Tesla Model 3

As the EV leader in the EV industry, it should be no surprise that we see the brand on this list. The Tesla Model 3 is probably the most popular electric vehicle in recent years. As the most affordable Tesla model available in Canada, it’s a high-performance electric car with a long-distance driving range. While the price tag for the new model is already set at an affordable level, it’s an attractive option for used electric vehicle shoppers.

Chevrolet Bolt

The Chevrolet Bolt is an excellent option for used EV shoppers thanks to its impressive battery range and bargain pricing. The Chevrolet Bolt EUV is a 5-seater vehicle that comes in 2 trim levels. It’s made even better in terms of shared interior, comfort, and feature content upgrades. The Bolt EUV is similar to the original Bolt lacked, it offers a longer wheelbase for better back-seat space, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, and the availability of Super Cruise as a plus. This family-friendly EUV provides 398 km of driving range with a single charge, providing commuters with the equivalent of 115 mpg while sharing the Bolt’s standard safety features and exceptional value. Also, as one of the long-range EVs, the Bolt holds strong resale value. 

Audi e-Tron

In terms of performance, the Audi e-Tron is much like Audi’s gas-powered crossovers. The e-Tron comes standard with all-wheel drive and it’s smooth to drive. It’s pricey on the used market currently, while it takes longer to charge and has a shorter range than its rivals. But it offers a traditional luxury SUV with an electric powertrain and has adequate cargo capacity and new tech features. As it has almost remained largely unchanged since it first came to market as a 2019 model, a used model can be appealed to used electric vehicle shoppers.

BMW i3

The i3 is a stylish electric car that has an upscale interior. As battery range is one of the important factors when determining the EVs with the best resale value, despite its upscale contents, the BMW i3 has a shorter battery range. As it is short on battery range, it’s you may find a bargain price for the i3 in the used market. The i3 is still worth considering as it’s highly practical in between a car and an SUV. It gives a smooth ride, and comes with rear-wheel drive.
