According to a report by Recurrent, a data firm that tracks used electric car sales in the US, Tesla cars are dominating the market of used EVs. The firm analysed the number of vehicle sales that have been reported in the past 90 days for different electric vehicles, compared to their number in inventory.

It has been noted that Tesla is currently turning over 4.5 EVs for every car listed. This gives an idea for the demand for premium electric cars in the used auto segment. As the prices of electric vehicles remain relatively high, many buyers are taking an interest in the second-hand car market to acquire an EV that fits their budget. And here, Tesla seems to be at the top.

And of all Tesla vehicles, Model 3 is faring the best. “The used Tesla turnover rate of 5.5X current inventory in 90 days is actually inflated by Model 3 popularity. Used Model 3s sell even faster: 6.6X sales per vehicle in inventory. For all other used Teslas, it’s 4X and not as much of an outlier compared to other popular models from Chevy and BMW," said CEO of Recurrent, Scott Case.

A previous report by the firm also suggested that entry-level Tesla cars may eventually constitute 40-50% of the country’s second-hand electric vehicle segment in the coming years.
