    A seller is asking $1 million for a prototype Tesla Roadster on eBay.

  • 2012 Coda Sedan
    Coda Sedan Electric-Car Rolling Bodies For Sale On eBay

    The 2012 Coda Sedan electric car had a long, troubled gestation and a brief life before joining other failed automotive startups in the history books. But at least few hundred cars were built, all told, and now some of them are for sale as rolling "gliders," without their battery packs. If you...

  • 1970 Chrysler Electric Test Vehicle-1 for sale on eBay (Image: eBay Motors)
    1979 GE-Chrysler Electric Test Vehicle-1 Up For Sale On eBay

    If you're creating a mass-market electric car, it makes a degree of sense to use a mass-market platform. That's why you'll find some Versa sitting under the Leaf and rather a lot of Focus in Ford's Focus Electric. Dig hard enough, and even the Chevy Volt has similarities with other GM...

  • 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid New York taxi (Image: eBay Motors)
    Used High-Mileage Hybrids, Yellow Taxi Paint Thrown In For Free

    We've talked about the longevity of hybrid cars on several occasions before, usually when some myth about batteries dying at ridiculously short intervals comes up. But just how much faith would you put in a high-mileage hybrid? Enough to part with your cash for an ex-NYC Ford Escape Hybrid taxi?...

  • 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190d biodiesel race car [Image: eBay auction]
    Classic Green Biodiesel Benz With Racing Pedigree For Sale

    Just because a car is old, or because it races, it doesn't mean it can't be green. Mercedes-Benz has been building diesel cars for what seems like an eternity--indeed, they were one of the first to produce a diesel production car. One such example is this 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190d that just sold on...

  • Porsche Boxster E electric car prototype
    Can't Wait For That Electric Porsche Boxster? Convert One Yourself

    Remember the Porsche Boxster E? The German sports car maker previewed the electric concept back in 2011, giving car enthusiasts a glimpse into what an official Stuttgart electric vehicle might be like. The Boxster E has since faded from memory, though Porsche's 918 Spyder supercar will use plug-in...

  • 2013 Tesla Model S

    There's lots of interest in the award-winning Tesla Model S electric luxury sport sedan about now. With production slowly ramping up, even the wealthiest electric-car fans have to wait as Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] works through its 14,000 reservations. So, perhaps the impatient among them may turn to that source of all secondary sales, eBay. Indeed, as of today, there are four Model S reservations offered for sale on eBay; last week, there were as many as eight. There's just one problem. Those reservations aren't transferable. After a note from our reliable tipster Brian Henderson, we...

  • 1965 Mercedes-Benz SL electric car conversion [Images: eBay listing]
    Converted Mercedes SL Electric Car On eBay Is A Real Beauty

    Imagine your dream car. It would have to be beautiful. Classy, too, and utterly elegant and tasteful. No superfluous detailing, timeless lines, and a badge that demands respect. Oh, and it would be electric, making it as clean as any other electric vehicle on the road. For some, the 1965...

  • Renault Twizy first drive, Ibiza
    Renault Twizy Electric Minicar On eBay: What You Need To Know

    We've written about the Renault Twizy electric minicar on several occasions in the past. After driving it in Ibiza we later tested it in the UK, and while flawed, it really does have appeal for those living in tight, crowded cities. By European standards, most cities in Florida aren't too crowded...

  • Green Vehicles Triac electric car
    Triac Three-Wheeled Electric Motorcycle For Sale On eBay

    Some curious vehicles have emerged on the electric vehicle market over the years, and few have been more curious than the Triac. We first wrote about the Triac three-wheel electric vehicle back in 2010. Made by Green Vehicles of Salinas, California, it touted a 100-mile range, an 80 mph top speed...

  • 2012 Tesla Model S Signature
    2012 Tesla Model S Shows Up On eBay, Will Owner Profit?

    Well, that didn't take long, did it? It's not unusual to see rare and exclusive cars pre-sold to buyers before cars are delivered--the practice has been going on for decades, every time the latest supercar hits the streets. We didn't expect to see a 2012 Tesla Model S sold so soon, though--and with...

  • 1976 CitiCar Electric Cars (Image: eBay Motors)

    Every so often we like to feature older electric cars, as well as those you can buy new from the dealer. That means scouring eBay for items of interest, and it's often surprising to see what vehicles people have stored away. This time, we've found three 1976 CitiCar electric vehicles for sale. Only, these ones need a little more work than your average purchase. In fact, each needs complete restoration, with varying levels of work required. The yellow vehicle looks in the best condition, with the red one a little worse off and the final one without its body, which the owner took off to make a...

  • 1997 Solectria Force electric car for sale on eBay
    eBay Watch: 1997 Solectria Force, Geo-Based Electric Car

    Electric car conversions aren't for everyone, but for electric car fans who can't stretch to one of the latest models, they're a much cheaper option to get behind the wheel of an EV. One such clean and cheap option, the 1997 Solectria Force, is currently sitting on eBay, with a few days remaining...

  • Experimental Lucas hybrid-electric car, developed in the 1980s
    Urgent: Save This Old, Ground-Breaking Hybrid Car!

    It's another Monday morning, and there's nothing like a positive start to the week. Unfortunately, this is nothing like a positive start to the week. In fact, when we started reading a thread on U.K. car enthusiast forum Retro Rides, it made us rather angry. If you read our piece last year on a...

  • Electrica 007 in junkyard, by Mike Bumbeck, Clunkbucket
    1981 Jet 007: Retro Chrysler-Based Electric Car On eBay

    A common misconception about electric cars is that they're a fairly recent phenomenon. Anyone who ever lusted over GM's EV1 will tell you that isn't the case, and Jay Leno might inform you otherwise too, no doubt parading a line of early 20th Century electric cars past you as he does so. But even...

  • 1980 Comuta-Car for sale on eBay
    eBay Watch: 1980 Comuta-Car--Retro Urban Electric Car

    We're big fans of the Renault Twizy electric car. Designed exclusively for urban use, it's a vehicle you'd purchase as much with the heart as you would with the head. Buyers of the Comuta-Car might have bought them with the stomach, as it does look rather like a wedge of cheese, but it's every bit...

  • eBay Green Driving Website (Screenshot)
    EBay Goes Green, Launches Green Driving eBay Motors Spinoff

    Once upon a time, if you wanted to buy a used car, the place to start your search was the local used car dealer or newspaper listings. Over the past decade however, searching for a used car has become a lot easier thanks to Internet auction site eBay and its eBay Motors listings. Listing everything...

  • A 1982 Morgan Plus 8, propane-powered and turbocharged.

    In case you thought we just reported on cars that are green in their energy sources, this 1982 Morgan Plus 8--available on eBay with 1 day left, and first brought to our attention by BringATrailer.com--qualifies both in the figurative and literal senses. Classic roadsters almost always look fine in British Racing Green, and this Moggie wears a fresh coat of it. Also new are the tan leather interior, side curtains (in lieu of roll-up door windows), tonneau cover and top, according to the seller’s listing. But what about the healthier, more CO2-friendly side? The continuation of the green...

  • Fiat Panda Elettra for sale on eBay
    eBay Watch: Historic Fiat Panda Electric Car For Sale

    One of the things you become aware of when you get interested in electric cars, is just how many examples of the breed have passed into history as silently as they once roamed the streets. A Fiat Panda Elettra for sale on eBay UK is one such example, and proof that the upcoming Fiat 500 Electric...

    Want A Cheap, Usable, Toyota Electric Car? Check eBay!

    Electric cars are often criticized for being too expensive. While there are many reasons for this, it means some people simply can't afford an electric car. However, there's still hope. Want a practical, reliable, usable electric car, with a decent range? Have a look on eBay! That's where we found...
