Second hand electric cars for sale

With Bristol Street Motors' range of used electric cars, you can drive towards a greener future without paying a fortune.

Whether you're considering one of our used electric car finance deals or just want to know more about electric vehicles (EVs), you can find a first-class customer experience, both online or in one of our local dealerships.


Is It worth getting a used electric car now?

By driving a used electric car, you can benefit the environment and save yourself a couple of quid at the same time. Not only will you be cutting your weekly fuel costs and annual road tax fee, but in some cases, you can even enjoy free parking.

Of course, these benefits are the same for a new electric car. The difference is that our used electric cars for sale provide a more affordable way to make the switch, with lower asking prices than brand new models.

Rest assured, you'll still be getting great value for money with a quality car. All of our second hand electric cars undergo extensive checks, including full HPI checks, to ensure they are up to standard.


What is a second hand electric car like to drive?

With no gear box or manual transmission, our used electric cars for sale offer a much smoother and quieter ride.

Instead of pulling up at a petrol station to refuel, you'll also just plug your second hand electric car into a charging point to get your vehicle road-ready. This can be done at home with an installable charging point or while you're on the road at a public station.

The best part? You can go and grab a coffee from the service station in the average time it takes your used electric car to charge back up to 80%.


What should I look for when buying a used electric car?

    When you're browsing our range of second hand electric cars for sale, there are a couple of things that you should look out for.

  • Your first consideration should be range. Do you want to buy a used electric car for long haul road trips or is it just to tackle the daily commutes? Knowing how many miles, on average, you'll rack up will help you pick the used electric vehicle with the most suitable range.
  • You'll also need to think about the age of a used electric car. Lithium-ion batteries typically have a lifespan of up to 10 years before needing to be replaced, so it's always important to check how many years the EV has got left in the tank.
  • Finally, it's always a good idea to check the safety rating of any second hand electric car for sale. The Euro NCAP safety test features rigorous assessments to determine how well vehicles perform in certain crash scenarios, and results are published to allow you access to the full safety report. This will give you peace of mind that your used electric car is capable of protecting you and your passengers on every journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to look for when buying a used car?

When buying a used car there are several things you should look for, since you'll be spending a fair amount of money on it. You should ideally look for a car that meets your budget, has a decent mileage on it (an extremely low mileage is not always good), and will suit your lifestyle. At Bristol Street Motors, we offer a wide range of used cars in excellent condition to satisfy your needs. The best way to see if one of these is for you? Book a test drive. Learn more with our helpful guide to buying a used car.

What to check when buying a used car?

When buying a used car, there are a few things you should check in order to make sure you are satisfied with it and that it will meet your expectations. This includes checking the exterior and interior for any signs of damage in the form of scratches, scrapes, dents, rust, corrosion, tears, rips, and holes, as well as making sure things like the tyres and windscreen wipers are in good working order. This will involve a visual inspection of the car before you take it for a test drive. Read our guide to buying a used car for a checklist of things to inspect on your visit to the dealer.

What is the cooling-off period when buying a used car from a dealer?

The 'cooling-off' period refers to the time frame you have after buying a car to change your mind for whatever reason. This gives you the option to cancel your order after placing it and lasts for 14 days after you receive it. If you choose to cancel, you will be able to return the car to the dealership you purchased it from and receive a full refund.

What about the warranty when buying a used car?

It varies depending on the manufacturer. When you buy a used car, the warranty will be explained to you if the vehicle is still under a specific manufacturer's warranty. You should also be able to find information on the warranty in the documentation provided with your vehicle.

What are my rights when buying a used car?

If you are buying a used car, it's important to remember you have rights. According to Motors, there are several laws in place protecting you as the consumer, which are: - Consumer Rights Act 2015 - This protects you in almost any purchase you make, including both new and used cars. The Act states that any car bought from an official dealer should be of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, and as described. It also gives you the right to reject a vehicle within the first 30 days if it does not meet these standards, and for you to be given either a repair, replacement, or refund. - Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 - Dealerships must comply with these regulations which prohibit them from unfair business practices, such as giving false information or insufficient information about the vehicle, acting aggressively in order to make a sale, failing to meet reasonable expectations of what is acceptable, and engaging in specific banned practices like claiming a vehicle will only be available for a limited time to make a sale. Whether you buy a used car at the dealership or online, your rights will remain the same and they are there to make sure that you are sold a safe, road-worthy vehicle that meets your standards and expectations and is sold to you at a price that reflects its age and mileage.

How do I tax a second-hand car?

Taxing a second-hand car is the same as taxing a new one. The GOV.UK website sets out how to tax your vehicle, stressing that you must tax your vehicle even if you are exempt from paying road tax due to a disability, or driving an electric vehicle. You can do this easily online, with the help of your vehicle log book (V5C) or the green owner slip you received with the vehicle. Tax your vehicle in minutes here
