New figures: These electric cars lose the most in value

It doesn't matter which car you invest in. Not even if it has to run on electricity. At least not if the goal is to keep the value roughly the same.

If there's one thing that's more certain than amen in church, it's that new cars lose value. In fact, they are rattling down in price.

At the moment, due to extremely tough competition and general uncertainty in the market, this is especially the case for electric cars. But which electric cars do the absolute worst when it comes to the loss in value after three years?

The Swedish Kvdbil , which is behind the site Bilprisen, has made a settlement over this. And if you're happy with your electric car, it's probably just a matter of sticking with it. Because if it stands for a replacement, there is a prospect of a singing economic slap.

The cars don't just lose value. They are skydiving. Especially when they have a few years behind them. In general, you have to expect a loss in value of 30 percent of the new price after three years and 60,000 kilometers, but, as the survey points out, it could easily look worse.

The investigation consists of the loss in value of 10 electric cars as well as a prediction of their value in another three years. And it is, if you get into that sort of thing, grim reading.

And here no distinction is made between the car's country of origin. In fact, German Audi takes the lead with the e-Tron quattro 55 Proline. That is, when you add it up to kroner.

However, in terms of percentage, a three-year-old Nissan Leaf definitely loses the most. Namely 44 percent of its value after 3 years.

The Swedes even get rid of the high toll pressure that drivers here at home are plagued by. So the basis of comparison is even more real.

If we look three years further into the future, Swedish Audi e-Tron quattro 55 Proline owners must expect to have lost a further 30 per cent of the original investment, while for Nissan a further 37 per cent must be added.

– Cars decrease in value throughout their lifetime.

– And although the differences tend to become smaller over the years, it is premium cars that continue to experience the biggest drop in value. At least calculated in kroner.

– It is also important to remember that price reductions on new cars can affect the resale value, as we have already seen from Tesla in particular, says Daniel Odsberg, sales manager at Kvdbil.

The smallest loss in value on the list has a Seat Mii (a car that has gone out of production, ed.). On the other hand, the car is already the cheapest of those compared to it.
