Get your battery checked before you buy

Good-quality used electric vehicles have sufficient battery capacity to meet daily driving needs in Yukon. Ask for a battery-health report from the seller before you buy.

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.
