Long delivery times for new electric passenger cars are leading to increased prices of used cars.
Global supply chain problems have caused long waiting times for new electric cars. Now, used car prices are increasing, E24 writes.
The price increase is particularly noticeable for electric cars, where the waiting time is the longest and demand is the greatest.
“It is now possible to make money on used electric cars, a trend that has previously been reserved for vintage cars,” Kristian Melchior at Rebil stated.
On the car dealer’s website, a Tesla Model 3 and a Polestar 2 were sold for NOK 13,000 and NOK 30,000 more than the price of a new car, respectively.
So far this year, 34,010 new electric cars have been sold in Norway, an increase of 28.9% compared with last year. But in April, the number of sold new electric cars fell, while the number of sold used imported electric cars rose by 54.7%.
