Used car prices have risen in unprecedented fashion in recent weeks and two of the highest risers are powered by electricity.
Research carried out exclusively for trade magazine Car Dealer by valuations experts Cap HPI showed some prices for used cars rose by over £1,000 last month.
The data showed that in April and May used car prices rose on average by nine per cent across the board thanks to huge demand from buyers, partly as a consequence of poor new car supply.
Car factories are currently being hit hard by a global shortage of semiconductor chips, and in some cases production lines are at a standstill. With new car supply drying up, buyers are turning to used cars in their droves.
