eBay Motors provided Digital Trends with a list of 20 of the most expensive vehicles that not only were listed on the online marketplace and auction site, but actually sold. They range from luxury sports cars and motorcoaches to small airplanes. There’s even a project vehicle, a GM Futurliner waiting for a full frame-up restoration.

According to eBay, the online marketplace and auction site has 165 million active buyers globally, and at any time there are approximately 1 billion live listings on the site, 81 percent of which are new. In the U.S., a car or truck is purchased on eBay Motors every five minutes, while three vehicle parts or accessories are sold every second.

If you’re thinking about shopping for a vehicle on eBay, the site’s Vehicle Purchase Protection (VPP) protects against certain losses associated with fraud, up to a maximum amount of your purchase price paid not exceeding $100,000, which means none of the 20 vehicles above would be fully covered. Because remote buyers often want an objective, knowledgeable inspection, eBay partners with WeGoLook for on-site inspections for a small fee.

The Kia EV3 could be the cheap electric SUV we’ve been waiting for
White Kia EV3

The Kia EV9 was already one of the cheapest ways to get an electric SUV, but now the company is taking things to the next level. After teasing the Kia EV3 last year, the car is now official.

The EV3 is built to be a slightly smaller, cheaper version of the EV9 -- following the path of the Rivian R2, which arrived after the Rivian R1S. It's certainly not as technologically advanced as the EV9, but it still looks unmistakably like a modern Kia, and is clearly a sibling of the larger SUV. On the outside, the vehicle has the same split taillights and very similar Tiger Face front. But it is quite a bit smaller. The vehicle will be available in nine finishes -- however only "Aventurine Green" and "Terracotta" are being announced right now.

Kia EV3: release date, performance, range, and more
White Kia EV3

Kia is on a roll. Hot on the heels of the success of the Kia EV6 and EV9, the company is already announcing what could be its cheapest electric vehicle yet -- the Kia EV3.

The Kia EV line seems to follow the rule of lower numbers indicating a lower price — and if so, the EV3 will end up being the cheapest electric car Kia has released to date. That, however, thankfully doesn’t mean that the EV3 will be a low-end car — it just means that Kia may be pushing the boundaries on electric car pricing.

Kia EV3 vs Tesla Model Y: Can Kia’s new entry-level car take on Tesla?
White Kia EV3

The Kia EV3 is finally coming, and it could well end up being the best small-size electric SUV to buy when it finally rolls out. It's smaller than the Kia EV9, but it offers many of the same design elements and features. But there's another small-size electric car that's currently one of the most popular vehicles out there -- the Tesla Model Y.

How does the Kia EV3 compare with the Tesla Model Y? And is one vehicle actually better than the other? We put the Kia EV3 and the Tesla Model Y head-to-head to find out.
Design
The design of the Kia EV3 is very different than that of the Model Y, though they're both reasonably good-looking vehicles.
