Our Nissan LEAF Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2017, 2016 & 2015 Nissan LEAF model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 44% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2017 LEAF. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 30.73 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

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

Own a 2017 Nissan LEAF?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
