This is a new business: owners of Tesla and other electric vehicles are reselling them amid shortages. Many are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars more

Many Tesla buyers have been waiting for electric vehicle deliveries for months due to high demand exacerbated by inflation and ongoing semiconductor shortages. Some Tesla owners saw an opportunity in the current market conditions and decided to capitalize on it.

According to the Los Angeles Times, some Tesla owners in Los Angeles have realized they can make money by reselling their electric vehicles. The 33-year-old automotive enthusiast detailed the process, including the slow increase in profits for every new Tesla sold.

Dennis Wang said he lost money on his first attempt to resell the Tesla before making $4,000 on a second car and $7,000 on a third. This process is not much different from reselling property or concert tickets.

“I currently have a Model S that I’m probably going to sell within the next three months, pending market launch,” Wang explains. “Also, I ordered Model Y and Model X.”

There are many such people, while some buyers are willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars in excess of retail prices. For example, one person tried to sell a 2022 GMC Hummer EV1 for $220,000 while the car is selling for just $105,000 from the automaker. Rivian R1T EV pickups are offered at prices ranging from $123,000 to $220,000, well above the automaker’s $67,500 price listed on its website.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter supplier Eddie Grybust has sold his Tesla Model Y, which he and his family have been driving for nine months. Grybust reportedly made $5,000 from the sale and the buyer flew to him in Boise, Idaho from Las Vegas, Nevada to pick up the electric car.
