Article on Forbes aggregating projections from and predicts that the Bolt EUV will retain the highest percentage of its value among EVs after 5 yrs:
  • Average new vehicle retains 40% of value after 5 yrs
  • Chevy Bolt EUV: 66%
  • Chevy Bolt EV: 55%
  • Ford Mustang Mach-E: 52%
  • Audi E-Tron: 47%
  • Tesla Model S: 46%
  • Tesla Model X: 45%
  • Tesla Model 3: 44%
  • Porsche Taycan: 43%
  • MINI Cooper SE: 42%
  • Nissan Leaf: 41%
  • Volvo XC40 Recharge: 39%
  • Tesla Model Y: 35%
  • Hyundai Kona Electric: 27%
  • Kia Niro EV: 22%
I don't know how Edmunds or KBB came up with their projections, but the availability, class, and MSRP of these vehicles vary dramatically. So a Bolt EUV that holds 66% of its value would go from $34k to $22.4k, while a Porsche Taycan that holds 43% of its value would go from $84k to $36k.

After ordering my 3rd EV, a family member started inquiring about me handing down my 2018 Bolt.
My wife said to just give it away and help out. She said we don’t need 3 EVs.
The values of my cars are non existent. People in my family just takes them off my hands when I get a newer one.
