One has already passed its 10-year anniversary.

CarGurus, a leading automotive research and shopping website, recently put together a list of the top 10 used EVs to buy for 2021. They did this for those who want an EV but don't want to pay the higher price of a new one. Many EVs depreciate in value quickly and can be purchased used for a much lower price. Naturally, some might be afraid of the battery pack going bad but warranties are usually offered for used vehicles, and EV battery packs tend to last a long time

Before you go down the list, keep in mind that CarGurus didn't rank the list (or didn't mention that it did). We added the driving range based on EPA estimates from the first model year to the current one. Used EV prices range a lot depending on mileage, age, and condition. MyEV.com is an electric vehicle marketplace that will help you find used EVs. 

From CarGurus:

Some vehicles on our list offer range extenders, but we're making our decisions based on value, miles of range, battery capacity, depreciation, and practicality to judge these cars against their internal combustion engine-powered counterparts. We've included two Tesla models, but left out the Model X and Model Y because there are other EVs that offer better value and features.
