Key findings from the report include:

  • Used EV sales are poised for significant growth: whereas EVs made up 7.6% of all new car sales in 2023, they were less than 1% of the used market.1
  • The difference between Carvana’s average sale prices of Used EVs and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles is narrowing – from $13,000 in Q1 2023 to $7,000 in Q1 2024.
  • Carvana’s used EV sales mix is reaching new highs as affordability improves, increasing to 4.3% of Carvana’s total sales in Q1 2024.
  • In Q1 2024, 24% of Carvana's EV and PHEV sales met all vehicle thresholds to be eligible for the Federal Used Clean Vehicle Credit, further improving affordability.

“The significant, multi-year growth in new EV sales is a leading indicator of the potential of the used EV market. As a larger selection of EVs makes its way into the used fleet, prices normalize, and tax credits become available, more used car buyers will have the opportunity to access the EV category,” said Ernie Garcia, CEO of Carvana. “Carvana has always sought to build an inventory that matches the tastes and preferences of our customers. While we maintain a diverse selection across all fuel types, we are proud to now offer more than 50 different models of EVs at a wide range of price points.”
