Tesla stands out as the top used EV in Carmax 2023 Electric Vehicle Co – Tesla Maison

CarMax, one of the United States' premier used vehicle retailers, has seen an increased interest among customers for electric vehicles--specifically Teslas--due to CarMax's 2023 Consumer Report on Electric Vehicles (EVs).

CarMax reported that searches for "electric vehicles" doubled between February 2022 and 2023, initially showing an initial surge in February or March as gas prices surged and Ukraine conflict escalated further. A peak in searches came during October when new rules for federal EV credits in the US took effect.

Tesla's success should come as no surprise given their significant market share for electric vehicle sales. Tesla's aggressive price cuts could well explain their dominance among used EV customers.

The CarMax Report also provided insight into trade-ins, providing insight into intriguing consumer behavior. CarMax found that Toyota Tacomas were among the most frequently traded-in for Tesla Model 3s despite their vast differences. Most often traded-in Teslas included Model Y SUVs or S luxury sedans.
