Used elec­tric vehi­cle (EV) prices have con­tin­ued on path sim­i­lar to pre­vi­ous analy­sis over past two years – prices con­tin­ue to be very soft. Demand con­tin­ues to be ham­pered by range and tech­nol­o­gy con­cerns, as well as by stiff com­pe­ti­tion from high­ly effi­cient, cheap­er, gaso­line-pow­ered cars. Depre­ci­a­tion rates are in part a prod­uct of the lev­el of dis­count­ing at new vehi­cle sales.
