About The Numbers

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

Here are some brief descriptions of the columns:
  • Year - The brand model year.
  • % Decline (YOY) - Year over Year price decline.
  • % Decline - Total percentage of decline.
  • % Paid - Percentage of the original price paid for that model year grouped by the same trim levels.
  • % Left - Percentage left of reliable years with relatively predictable costs 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.
All prices are in US Dollars.   Have more questions?   Check out our Q&A section here.

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

On average, expect to pay only 53% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2015 Tesla. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 13.70 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2016 & 2017 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
