It wasn’t that long ago that there wasn’t much of a market for EVs, let alone used ones. But today, you can offset or eliminate the higher upfront costs EVs typically incur by buying a used one. The used EV market is already well established, so much so that you can now find used EV recommendations in many major automotive publications. So if you’re looking for an EV hatchback, Consumer Reports thinks the 2019 Nissan Leaf is one of the most used EVs you can get.

Evaluation of the best 3-year-old electric vehicles

If you are looking for relatively new vehicles, Consumer Reports has you covered. The recently published piece “Used Cars: Best 3-Year-Old Electric Vehicles” provides a good overview of recent models you may be able to find on the market. If you’re familiar with Consumer Reports, the site uses a very complex evaluation system to painstakingly browse research data, thoroughly rate each vehicle, and review other available third-party data to develop scores and recommendations.
