The fact that a six year old car is all but guaranteed to have a brand new battery (under the 2021-2022 recall), coupled with the bargain of a price, ensured the victory of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt. 86% of used 2017 Chevy Bolts are listed at a price under $25,000.

With 71% of the more than three million EVs on the road being model years from 2021 or earlier, and new tax incentives for owning a used EV more affordable than ever, 2023 looks like it could be the year of the used EV.

As a result, Recurrent, an EV analysis and market trends research firm, decided it was time to rate the best used electric vehicles for 2023.

Recurrent CEO Sizes Up EV Batteries

Recurrent compared the most popular all-electric models against each based on cost per range mile, number in inventory, likelihood to be under $25,000, charging speed, charging network availability, average range score, seasonal variability, recurrent Report eligibility, connectivity, and annual price depreciation.

  • *Best EV Overall - 2017 Chevrolet Bolt   
  • Best used EV for around-town errands: 2020 Nissan Leaf
