Why buy a used zero-emission vehicle?

  • Used vehicles are cheaper to buy.
  • They can still have excellent battery performance. While used vehicles may have 1/2 to 1/3 of their original range, they're more than sufficient for daily commuting.
  • Buying used vehicles reduces the carbon impacts from manufacturing new vehicles.
