Zapping Auto Moto Renault Rafale: first contact with the large SUV cut from the Losange
Electricity continues to become more popular little by little. This is evidenced by the latest barometer from AutoScout 24 (used car ad site). According to the latter, the average price of electric vehicles is down 13%. It now stands at €33,964, compared to €39,111 a year ago.
At the same time, overall prices of used cars are currently increasing. They climbed 0.3% in January, compared to the previous month. Over one year, they even increased by 2.6%. However, the current average price of advertisements is €31,087. EV prices therefore remain above average prices.
Popular recent cars
This overall increase can perhaps be explained by the fact that the very young used segment saw its volume grow, by 2.8%. The increase in the entry into circulation of new cars therefore fuels the second-hand market. But this undoubtedly drives up prices.
“The volume of very young used vehicles is increasing slightly. This shows that the new market is once again supplying this segment of “almost new” and “immediately available” used vehicles.”explains Vincent Hancart, general director of AutoScout 24 France.
The Peugeot 208 explodes on the second-hand market
Among the most popular electric cars on the second-hand market, the Peugeot 208 is making its mark. The latter recorded a volume increase of 255%. Enough to suggest that “consumers are no longer waiting for a price reduction to buy their next vehicle”continues Vincent Hancart:
“The second-hand market is showing great vitality at the start of the year and confirms the trend recorded in recent months. This performance must nevertheless be compared to prices which remain very high and stocks which are slightly decreasing.”
Despite this, it remains ahead of the Renault Zoé, still at the top of sales. The Tesla Model 3 completes the podium, ahead of the Fiat 500 and the Dacia Spring.
