The Fiat 500e was auctioning as low as $4,000 and even some Tesla Model S vehicles were as low as $30,000. While you won't get to take advantage of the $7,500 federal rebate, it seems that these vehicles' depreciation can be your friend.
Fast forward to today and many more of these vehicles are now available at dealerships. Since dealers may have picked them up at incredible auction prices, or they just struggle to sell EVsover ICE vehicles, the prices are surprising.
