Demand for used EV's has grown significantly in the last two years in both the domestic and export markets. Supply has also grown, but it's primarily demand for the vehicles. In the US the awareness of the environmental benefits of EVs continues to grow for fast followers, thanks in large part to the aura of Tesla as an aspirational brand. Unfortunately many in that segment may not have the means to purchase a new EV, so they are shopping the pre-owned markets.

This is the old supply and demand curve.
