Traditional car value calculators often rely on metrics designed for combustion engines, such as the odometer reading, which may not accurately reflect the value of an electric vehicle (EV). That’s where Sport Buys Cars has a solution!
Our trade tool (Powered by TradePending) takes into account the vehicle’s market value based on similar and comparable EVs within our local market. We take the trade value range and your cars condition into consideration to give you the power to choose your deal.
The traditional odometer reading, the STANDARD in gauging the condition and value of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles, offers a reasonable insight into their past, present, and potential future value. Given a century of automotive industry experience in analyzing the wear and tear of pistons and transmissions, the value determining process in these vehicles is relatively well-understood and predictable.
However, electric vehicles (EVs) present a different scenario. Lacking pistons or transmissions, an EV typically has around 20 moving parts, in stark contrast to the 2,000 found in a typical ICE vehicle. The most crucial component of an EV is its battery, which is a significant determinant of the vehicle’s range both now and in the future.
This is precisely why showcasing a healthy and well-maintained battery is vital when seeking to maximize your EV’s trade-in value. Traditional valuation methods often overlook the aspect of battery health, which is a key factor for EVs. By emphasizing this crucial aspect, you can secure a better valuation for your used EV.
In preparation for selling your car, you should obtain a Range Score evaluation well in advance of the sale. This provides a documented track record of your responsible EV ownership, further strengthening your position in the trade-in process.
