Average new price: £33,100
Percentage retained after three years and 60,000 miles: 14.5%
Average depreciation after three years and 60,000 miles: £28,300
The Peugeot iOn is essentially a re-badged Citroen C-Zero (and both are re-badged Mitsubishi i-MiEVs), which means it also offers staggering depreciation. Spend £33,100 on a new Peugeot iOn (the average purchase price with options, according to CAP) and you’ll be able to sell it for just £4,800 after three years.
That’s right - you may have saved on fuel, but you’ll have lost an incredible £28,300 on depreciation. That’s over 85% of its value. Bonkers.
