ADESA Launches CR Feature for EV Batteries

By Staff Writer September 22, 2022 651

A new condition report feature to showcase battery performance of electric vehicles has been launched by ADESA. Powered by Recurrent—an EV battery and range analytics company—the EV Range Score is available on the majority of used electric vehicles that transact on the U.S. market, providing buyers with more transparency and confidence when purchasing EVs.

“Electric vehicle adoption continues to accelerate, so we’re thrilled to evolve our condition reports to ensure customers have a more complete view of each vehicle,” said John Hammer, president of ADESA U.S. “The addition of Recurrent’s Range Score ensures customers have access to the most relevant vehicle condition data—including a clearer understanding of EV battery health—and can make faster and smarter buying and selling decisions.”

During the inspection process, the vehicle VIN number for an eligible EV is shared through Recurrent’s software to generate a Range Score from zero to 100. That information is displayed clearly on the condition report with a Range Score badge. Once the user clicks the badge, more information is shown including details on the warranty and expected battery performance in a full Recurrent Report.

“The battery represents a lot of the cost of a used EV and most of the concern that we hear from buyers—they want to know how the battery will hold up,” said Scott Case, co-founder and CEO of Recurrent. “ADESA is establishing itself as a leader in the EV market by helping sellers pass that confidence on to buyers at each stage of the used car wholesale process.”
