Highest depreciation vehicles

iSeeCars has done a recent 2018 deprecation study, which determined the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf to make the top ten list. What we are seeing here after just 5 years is pretty staggering, and I think this is something automakers will have to address with all future EV's.

this does correlate well to what you often see people buying used and I can tel you that these vehicles rarely come up in discussion and even more so are the people who follow through to make a purchase. Just look at how a Camry Hybrid depreciates compared to these

An important note here is that this is for the first generation Leaf. The 2018 model hasn't been out nearly long enough to approximate what depreciation is going to be like. But I do agree it should be an area of focus for automakers.

I realized overall disinterest in the Leaf among people shopping for EV's which factors into resale value, even since Nissan came on the scene with EV's, they've been on the lower end of the scale.

The main reason why the Leaf see's such steep drops in value is because its more economical to just buy or lease a new one. They have sort have become a victim of their own success by offering an EV at such an affordable price.
