Despite some massive leaps in technology and efficiency, green car technology remains rather unaffordable to many people. That should all change soon, though, as electric vehicles should soon make their way to the used car market. The luster of the new technology might have faded, but that’s a good thing for used car customers, actually.
Brad Berman of plugincars.com promises that “there are going to be great deals for 3-year-old, barely used electric vehicles.” That’s great news, especially if you’re looking forward to owning your own Chevy Volt or Nissan LEAF but don’t want to fork over the cash for an all-new model. Over 25,000 formerly leased Volt and LEAF models are expected to hit the market this year alone.
In fact, some experts anticipate that used electric cars might sell for as little as a third of the original price. There is exciting news on both sides of the electric vehicle coin, though—as a new hydrogen fuel breakthrough might help automakers create completely clean cars. Come see us at Pfeiffer Plainfield Used Cars to learn more about both new and old green car technology.
