The 2017, 2016 & 2015 BMW i3 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 56% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 i3. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 27.46 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2015 i3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
