Aston Barclay names ‘most desirable’ used EVs for dealers

By automotive-mag.com 3 Min Read

Car buyers are embracing the latest EV models when they reach the second-hand market for the first time according to Aston Barclay’s April desirability index.

The Tesla Model Y, Audi Q4, Polestar 2, Skoda Enyaq and Vauxhall Mokka X all appeared in April’s index of the top 10 most desirable used EVs.

The index which determines the hottest models being sold across Aston Barclay’s auction network saw half of April’s top 10 table taken up by new models launched over the past 24 months.

The Mercedes-Benz EQC topped the April EV index, closely followed by the Jaguar I-Pace in second and the Tesla Model 3 in third place.

Generally, dealers continue to buy higher value used EVs like the EQC and I-Pace to satisfy sold orders, while the Tesla Model 3 and Kia Niro are now seen as stock EV models dealers park on forecourts to cater for driver demand.

“Not everyone can get behind the wheel of the latest model EV when it is first launched and instead, they look out for the car once it reaches the used market at two or three years of age,” explained Nick Thompson, Aston Barclay’s chief customer officer.

“Dealers are specifically targeting these new model EVs at auction in the knowledge they will sell quickly once they reach their forecourt.

“It is another welcome sign that used EVs are starting to behave in a similar way to ICE cars when they reach the used market which will continue to build confidence with dealers and buyers,” he added.

Aston Barclay’s monthly desirability index takes into consideration three key metrics: web views prior to sale, number of physical and online sale bids, and sale price achieved as a percentage of CAP average.
