For these folks (who probably represent the majority of car buyers), there’s good news: plug-in vehicles are becoming plentiful on the used-car market, and there are some killer deals to be had (as your favorite EV writer, who bought a used LEAF and a used Prius Plug-in, can attest).

There are a couple of reasons why used EVs are available so cheap.
