Dealers and owners offer “used” EVs at massive premiums to new car price

The scarcity of new electric vehicles coming into Australia has led some car dealers and EV owners to ask as much as $25,000 more for their “used” electric cars than the price of a new car.

A number of private and dealership advertisements for electric cars have been sent into The Driven, including one by a would-be buyer frustrated at missing out on the 109 Ioniq 5 electric SUVs that went on sale in March sold out within just minutes.
