Used Nissan LEAF Prices Fall Again In April
Once again the Nissan LEAF has topped Cars.com’s list of “Top 10 Biggest Used-Car Price Drops.”
In March and again in April, the LEAF ranked #1 on this list.
According to Cars.com:
“For the second month in a row, prices for used Nissan Leafs sank more than any other used car, dropping 4.7 percent ($708) in April. Used prices for the all-electric Leaf are down 14 percent ($2,362) year-to-date while the average price for all late-model used cars is up 1 percent ($258) to $23,167.”
Cars.com suggests that still relatively low gas prices may be the culprit:
“Gas prices aren’t driving demand for alternative-fuel cars like the Leaf. Even though the national average for a gallon of regular has been moving up in recent weeks and now stands around $2.65, according to AAA, it’s still about a dollar less than a year ago when the average for a gallon of regular was $3.67.”
Cars.com notes the following in regards to the Top 10 list above:
The charts detail used cars from the 2012 to 2014 model years with the biggest price drops and increases. To be eligible for the lists, a model had to have at least 250 cars in Cars.com’s national search listings.
