Understanding Battery Adjusted Value

Dealerships that partner with Recurrent factor in a Battery Adjusted Value - a special premium based on the expected condition and longevity of your battery. Since the range of nearly all the vehicles we see are better than expected, the Battery Adjusted Value adds to the resale price for most sellers.

A good battery is good news for you and the person buying your car!

Understand How Tesla Fits into the Used EV Market

Used Tesla prices did something weird between 2020 and 2022: they appreciated, or increased, in value, because supply was limited and demand was high. But since then, the prices for used Teslas has fallen, often faster than many owners realize.

Here is a chart from Recurrent's quarterly EV Market Report.

Why Dealerships Love Tesla Model 3 & Model Y

Tesla's Model 3 was actually our pick for the Best Used EV of 2024 because falling prices made it one of the few 250-mile cars that is eligible for a used EV tax credit. That creates an excellent opportunity for people shopping for their first EV.
