CAP have published a residual value for the Leaf of nearly 50%, good news for the emerging EV market.
Residual values are a key area of concern for all but the keenest of potential EV buyers, but are shrouded in uncertainty. In a move that will massively help sales of EVs to the fleet market in particular, CAP monitor have estimated the RV of a Leaf at 40% of original price after 3 years or 30,000 miles. If the government grant of £5,000 toward purchase price is taken into account, Leaf owners can expect to get back 46% of what they paid for their vehicle at this point.
