    Used Electric Car Prices Up 54%: Which Went Up The Most?

    Last week we checked out July's used cars prices and which used cars were seeing the most and least price increases over a year ago.  This week we share more info from iSeeCars.com that digs deeper into electric vehicle used car prices.  According to iSeeCars says even though used car prices are beginning to level off in the second half of the year, used electric vehicle prices continue to increase significantly. Its analysts say in July, electric car prices jumped 54.3% from the same month last year. Compare that to gas-powered cars which increased 10.1%.   iSeeCars attributes the rise in EV used car prices to several factors:  soaring gas prices, improvements in charging infrastructure, and like with many vehicles, a lack of inventory.
