Depreciation is heavy electric cars

Depreciation is heavy electric cars
Plug in electric cars can be State of the art technology, but an analysis suggests that the most dramatic period of five years as their conventional counterparts will lose value.

Some of the largest value of defects include 2014 models, which only operated by batteries, no gas motors according to the analysis by Kelley Blue Book today at the request of the United States.


Chevrolet spark EV. The small electric is projected, to 28 percent of the list price $28.305 in five years worth, while a comparable conventional version of the same car will keep 40 percent of its value.

Ford focus electric. The Compact will be worth 20 percent of its original $35,995-list price, while 36 percent will dominate a well-equipped conventional focus Titanium with an automatic transmission.

Nissan leaf. Even the top-selling pure electric car is 2013 forecast on a residual value of 15 per cent for the model. A similar Nissan Sentra would receive 36 percent SL compact.

"Moderately absorb pure electrics have been in the re-sale value", says Eric Ibara, Director of the remaining consulting for Kelley Blue Book. Customers, the "ready, a new, to buy a used electric vehicle?"

In fact three electric cars - Fiat 500e sheet, and smart fortwo electric - have the highest depreciation under all cars top the list of the models from the KBB and trucks for model year 2014 are projected.

Combating concerns about depreciation, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk in may, announced that he personally the resale value of their model S all-electric sedan for buyers would ensure that Tesla's finance program. Tesla said that under the deal, resale value higher than BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus and Jaguar.

As bad as that sounds, there are some mitigating factors. In particular, many buyers sales incentives are packages and numbers not anywhere near the list price. Some of the biggest discounts come on leasing. And many electric vehicles qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, plus State or incentives. Great discounts on news cars damage of residual value.

Plug in hybrid cars, which with backup gas engines, fair better, KBB reports. Including the new Panamera Porsches compared E-hybrid a projected resale value by 37 percent, with 41 percent for the conventional model. Plug-In Prius a resale by 35 percent, 2 percentage points lower than for the conventional version has Toyota.

Nissan officials note the electric vehicle, or EV, revolution is still in its infancy. The market for used electric cars is yet to develop.

"We expect to see a similar adoption curve for used EVs because of new EVs, and we reach just the point where it used EVs on the market," says Erik Gottfried, Director of marketing for Nissan leaf. "EVs are active and fast-moving segment of the automotive market."
