SEATTLE, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Recurrent, the car industry’s leading analyst of electric vehicle (EV) battery health, today announced it has received an additional $4.5 million in funding from several leading automotive and technology venture firms to accelerate its ability to meet demand across the automotive industry. The funding positions Recurrent for a rapid growth phase, starting with noteworthy partnerships.
“For almost two years, we have been working tirelessly to develop a product that is capable of revolutionizing the secondary EV market,” said Scott Case, CEO and co-founder of Recurrent. “It is such a proud moment for everyone on our team that we are able to welcome these new investors as they help us scale it for all types of EV buyers.

Recurrent Brings EV Battery Reports to Dealer Lots and Wholesale Auctions
Del Grande Dealer Group, the newest Recurrent dealership customer, will feature Recurrent ratings for its used EV listings across its 19 rooftops in the Bay Area. Del Grande is a top seller of used electric vehicles and is seen as a crucial partner in setting this new standard with Recurrent.
In addition, one of the largest used auto wholesale auction providers will be adding Recurrent ratings to its digital auctions to offer buyers new levels of transparency when purchasing used electric cars. This allows its customers to quickly determine how well an individual EV has retained its driving range and how that range can be expected to vary in different temperatures.
"The shift to electric vehicles continues to be a great opportunity to help our guests reduce commuting costs and their carbon footprints," said Jeremy Beaver, CEO of Del Grande Dealer Group. "A key to helping our guests make informed buying decisions includes education around charging and range. Recurrent reports are an amazing resource for our team of product specialists that helps with the EV shopping journey and experience."
Recurrent’s reports display an Excellent, Good, or Fair rating to compare each vehicle’s range to its original range. An Excellent rating means that the vehicle’s range today is over 90% of its original range at full charge. A Good rating means the range is between 80-90% of its original range. A Fair rating means the vehicle’s range is less than 80% of original.
Recurrent was founded in 2020 with the goal to provide more transparency and confidence in pre-owned electric cars. Through its comprehensive battery reports for EV owners, buyers and sellers, it aims to accelerate the overall adoption of electric vehicles.
