Our depreciation figures are calculated by aggregating then analyzing pricing, sales and other related automotive data sets.

Here are some brief descriptions of the columns:
  • Year - The vehicle model year.
  • New Price - The average or median new price paid of that model year grouped by most the popular trim levels.
  • Current Price - The average or median listing price of a used model of that year grouped by the same trim levels.
  • Maintenance - Estimated maintenance and repair costs during that year of ownership.
  • $ Decline - Year over Year price decline.
  • % Decline - Year over Year percentage of decline.
  • % Paid - Percentage paid of the original price.
  • % Left - Percentage left of reliable years of the vehicle.
  • Years Left - Current industry average of years remaining with predictable maintenance and repair costs.
  • Net Used Value ® - Our ranking & sorting index to help you find the model years with the most value.

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

On average, expect to pay only 41% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 i3. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 34.19 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2015 i3 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
