Why Now's the Time for Selling EVs

Why Nows the Time for Selling EVs

From COVID-19 restrictions to microchip shortages, the past couple of years have brought one disruption after another to the automotive space. One of the latest shakeups? Surging demand for electric vehicles, or EVs.

In fact, consumer demand for EVs has never been higher. There are a number of factors contributing to this trend, including higher gas prices as well as new federal and state-level incentives for fuel-efficient vehicles.

And yet, as demand for EVs reaches its highest point ever, the future has never looked shakier. The reason for this is simple: EVs run on lithium batteries, and there are early signs that a lithium shortage looms. According to the International Energy Agency, there may be a significant lithium deficit as soon as 2025.

The bottom line? Today's drivers are keenly interested in buying electric vehicles, but the supply may soon fall short of the demand. That presents an incredible opportunity for anyone who owns an EV already and may be willing to sell.

What are the Best-Selling Electric Vehicles?

This is a great time for selling an EV. Of course, there are some models that will prove more popular than others. Here's a rundown of the bestselling electric vehicles, as of summer 2022.

1. Tesla Model Y. How popular is the Tesla Model Y? When it was brought to market in 2020, it immediately eclipsed every other model in Tesla's product portfolio. And last year, more people bought Tesla Model Ys than all other EVs combined!

2. Tesla Model 3. While the Tesla Model 3 has been around for several years now, it remains one of the leaders in the EV field... both due to its excellent range and its very competitive price point. It's a car that provides an accessible way for drivers to enter the electric vehicle space.

3. Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Mustang Mach-E is the first of Ford's EV offerings to really catch fire with the public; more than 27,000 units sold last year alone. It comes in a number of configurations and provides the perfect balance of fuel efficiency with muscle car style.

4. Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV. Chevy's compact entries in the EV space have been well-received by the public, especially drivers who want an EV that's practical, affordable, and reliable. Indeed, with 200 HP and a 259-mile range, this is an incredibly functional, dependable entry in the EV space.

5. Volkswagen ID.4. With close to 17,000 units sold in 2021, this is an electric vehicle to take seriously. Its elegant VW design enabled it to leapfrog over a number of other, more established EVs to become a dominant player in this space. It is definitely a car that's captured consumer imagination.

6. Nissan Leaf. When it was first brought to market in 2011, the Leaf was one of the only true EVs available anywhere. As such, it captured a huge chunk of market share, and has become a venerable institution in the electric vehicle space. It remains a popular pick, and a bestseller across the country.

Other EVs with noteworthy sales figures include the Audi e-tron and e-tron Sportback; the Porsche Taycan; the Tesla Model S; and the Hyundai Kona Electric.
