Our Story

Early Current Automotive Team in Chicago

Current Automotive is the nation’s first online-focused, pre-owned electric vehicle store. Our team has been driving the transition to electric since 2008. Before starting Current in 2018, our co-founders and senior leadership helped scale Tesla from a tiny, unknown startup into a global automotive leader through establishing its used car program, standing up new delivery centers, and managing retail operations. To put it plainly, we’re EV experts.

Our mission is to be champions of electric vehicles who help people make the switch by providing a fun, educational and no-pressure experience. Why? Because we care. We care about helping people, building relationships and maintaining our reputation—which means always doing the right thing.

We are committed to educating customers about the benefits of switching to an electric vehicle and demonstrating how they provide a superior ownership experience. We make it easy to transition to your first—or purchase your next—electric vehicle with no-haggle pricing, competitive financing, nationwide shipping and a transparent trade-in process. Find your car, buy it online, and have it delivered.
