Our BMW i8 Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2016, 2017 & 2015 BMW i8 model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 46% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 i8. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 20.62 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2015 i8 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Own a 2016 BMW i8?

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.
