For the second month in a row, prices for used Nissan Leafs sank more than any other used car, dropping 4.7 percent ($708) in April. Used prices for the all-electric Leaf are down 14 percent ($2,362) year-to-date while the average price for all late-model used cars is up 1 percent ($258) to $23,167.
Gas prices aren’t driving demand for alternative-fuel cars like the Leaf. Even though the national average for a gallon of regular has been moving up in recent weeks and now stands around $2.65, according to AAA, it’s still about a dollar less than a year ago when the average for a gallon of regular was $3.67.
Used luxury car prices also took a big hit in April; seven of the 10 models with the steepest decrease in asking prices were from luxury brands with the Land Rover Range Rover SUV and Porsche Panamera full-size car rounding out the top three.
