New Research on Used Electric Vehicle Concerns by Loh, Noland

February 5, 2024

Concerns expressed by used electric vehicle owners based on surveying social media


The used EV market is growing as more EVs penetrate the market. To examine who is purchasing used EVs and what concerns they may have, we deployed a survey focused on owners of used EVs. Data was collected online via posting the survey to used-EV-related Facebook and Reddit communities. The survey was deployed from September to October 2022, and a total of 1,669 participants responded, of which 1,167 were usable responses. Most respondents are male, middle-aged, white, well-educated, and with higher incomes. Prior to buying a used EV, respondents were most concerned about pricing, battery performance, and the availability of public charging stations. We estimate logistic regression models and find that those with lower incomes were more concerned about the prices and the availability of public charging stations.
