Launched in March 2020, the Tesla Model Y ranked #1 in America’s new electric vehicle sales charts in 2021. Globally, too, it is among the best-selling new EVs. The Model Y is a highly sought-after EV in the used car market, but not one that’s easily available. We’ve sighted some listings of what appear to be good condition Model Ys with low mileage going for as low as around $45,000.

Why buy used?

The Tesla Model Y is available as new directly through the manufacturer, so why buy used? Simple. The Model Y is no longer as accessible as it originally was. At the launch, which was not very long ago, it was priced at $52,990 in the Long Range AWD and $60,990 in the Performance variant. Now, it retails at $65,990 and $69,990, respectively.

Secondly, there’s a long waiting period involved. According to the Model Y official online configurator, you could get the delivery as early as December 2022 if you’re lucky, but chances are you’ll have to wait until March 2023.

What are your options?

Out for a walk along Kingsway and spotted this: about $1 million worth of @Tesla Model Y sitting in a used car lot. The one closest to the camera is a 2022 model with 100km on the odometer priced at $105k. In this economy, who's going to pay $100,000 for a used car??? pic.twitter.com/4JahI1hXCw

Used Tesla Model Y units aren’t available in big numbers like many other crossovers and SUVs. Spotting a decent option (that doesn’t ask for the moon) from the limited lot isn’t going to be easy, but you can use aggregators like Edmunds and TrueCar to ease the process. We found a used 2021 Model Y Long Range AWD with just 17,600 miles listed on sale at BMW of the Woodlands going for just USD 49,995 through Edmunds. The description says its a single owner, zero accidents, owned for personal use, and clean title.

Volkswagen of Fort Myers has a 2021 Model Y Long Range AWD with only 10,004 miles and all those basic parameters checked going for USD 58,296, available through TrueCar. Most listings are for the Long Range AWD variant, which seems to be more popular than the Performance variant in the U.S.

Tesla Model Y at a glance

For those of you considering buying a new Tesla Model Y, here are the basic details. The 2023 Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD is available in 5- and 7-seat versions. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 135 mph. The EPA-est. driving range is 330 miles. The 2023 Tesla Model Y Performance is a strict five-seater.
