Eight EVs that are great value for money on the used car market

The used electric car market is one of the most popular places for first-time EV buyers because it offers industry-leading technology for a more attractive price. 

Combining a lower price point with very cheap running costs, there’s little else you’d need from your first – or second – electric car.

Here's eight of the best used electric cars you can buy:

Tesla Model S

One of the most popular Tesla models is the Tesla Model S. Simply because it offers so much range and performance.

If you want the most range possible, we'd suggest the Long Range Plus model, which packs a 100kWh battery and can get up to 405 miles on a single charge – easily enough for a week’s worth of commuting.  

But if it’s pure speed and acceleration you’re after, then the Tesla Model S Performance is the one for you because it can launch itself from 0-62mph in 1.99 seconds.

Nissan Leaf

Since it first came onto the market in 2010, the Nissan Leaf has been one of the most popular electric vehicles, and it’s even more appealing on the used market. 

The Nissan Leaf hatchback is an EV perfect for families and individuals looking to enter the world of EVs, offering excellent range, value for money and good looks. 

On used models, you can expect to get between 70 and 100 miles on a single charge, which when you consider the model could be more than 10 years old, isn’t all that bad.

Jaguar I-Pace

If luxury is what you’re after, then the Jaguar I-Pace might be right up your street. It combines a superb interior with the latest electric vehicle technology to create a really pleasant place to be. 

Every Jaguar I-Pace model is powered by a 90kWh battery that allows it to travel up to 292 miles on a single charge. 

Additionally, every I-Pace comes with an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty that’s transferred between owners and reduces any stress regarding battery deterioration.

Kia Soul EV

The Kia Soul is a pioneer in the electric automotive space, coming out all the way back in 2014 alongside the Nissan Leaf to kickstart the EV revolution. 

There is just one trim level available and all models are powered by a 64kWh battery.

The interior space is good too, with leather seats, a leather steering wheel, and a solid infotainment system with a 10-inch landscape screen.

Renault Zoe

The award-winning Renault Zoe is one of the best small EVs you can buy and is perfect for city dwellers because of how small it is.  

Slotting this 4,000mm long vehicle into tight parking spaces is easy and faff-free – something we love. 

You can expect up to 238 miles on a single charge, and this can be charged from 0-80% in around 70 minutes using a 50kWh fast charger.

Hyundai IONIQ

Like the Nissan Leaf, the Hyundai IONIQ has been on the scene since 2010 and has led the way in the rebirth of electric vehicles. 

A 2017 facelift saw some real improvements to the range, including sharper styling and improved battery technology.  

The most popular version of this electric Hyundai is the 100kW Premium model that can return up to 183 miles on a single charge, which is about the average for electric vehicles today.

Kia Niro EV

Many buyers will appreciate the looks of the Kia Niro EV because not only is it smart-looking, but it’s also familiar. 

The Niro EV has a battery capacity of 64.8kWh with the option of fast charging, which allows the Niro EV to get from 10-80% in around 45 minutes. 

Once it’s fully charged, Kia says the Niro EV should travel up to 287 miles on a single charge, which is plenty for driving around cities and towns as well as on longer motorway journeys

Tesla Model 3

Despite being the smallest Tesla, the Model 3 hatchback is a seriously impressive vehicle, with the Model 3 Long Range Plus variant featuring an 82kWh battery that promises to return up to 374 miles on a single charge. 

Even if you go for the cheapest RWD Model 3, you can still expect around 300 miles, beating pretty much every other electric car in its price range.

It’s also a really pleasant place to be, featuring a minimalist design with lots of interior technology and the optional Tesla autopilot system.
