Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt Among Top 10 Cars With Highest Depreciation

This post was originally published on this site

How about a great deal on a used electric car?

According to a recent 2018 depreciation study by iSeeCars, the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan LEAF make the top ten list of cars with the highest depreciation. In fact, the LEAF sits at the top of the list with an average five-year depreciation of 71.7 percent. The Chevrolet Volt isn’t far behind, as it places in the two-spot, with a depreciation figure of 71.2 percent.

This information can be framed a number of ways. If you plan to buy a brand-new vehicle and keep it for about five years before you sell it or trade it in, these cars should probably be avoided. However, if you plan to buy an EV and keep it for a long time, then depreciation is less of an issue. Most importantly, this also means that you may be able to snag a used Chevrolet Volt or Nissan LEAF at a really fantastic price. As we’ve reported before, plug-in electric vehicles tend to spend less time on dealer lots than their ICE competitors. Here’s a look at iSeeCars up-to-date chart:

The publication’s study explains:

iSeeCars.com analyzed more than 4.3 million new and used car sales to identify models with the lowest and highest loss in value after five years.

“While the average new vehicle loses 50.2 percent of its value after five years, there are vehicles that retain more of their value and depreciate less than average,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly. “For consumers who buy new vehicles and sell them around the five-year mark, choosing a model that retains the most value is a smart economic decision.”
