If I'm reading this correctly, it looks like 2015 LEAF prices actually went up between Jan 2017 and Mar 2017. I'd noticed that the prices on sites like Carvana seemed higher more recently, but thought that maybe it was just because they now have more 2015s and few 2013-2014s. But I guess this backs up what I was seeing, and have been reading about elsewhere (LEAFs being exported to other countries pushing prices up, supposedly).
Thanks for these wholesale value posts!

2015 Leaf prices seem up on Cargurus, they post the history of average advertised prices on their website and today their graph for the 2015 Leaf shows that asking prices bottomed out in February at $10,732 and are back up to $12,465 today.
https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/price-trends/Nissan-Leaf-d2077

Still, I'm not sure what that means, because the graph shows advertised prices, not the prices that the cars truly sell for. And many Leafs have been for sale for a long time. So maybe it's a fluke, maybe new 2017 Leafs are so heavily discounted now that the highest priced used Leafs linger longer on Cargurus, and thereby increase the average advertised price?

OrientExpress, would you have an update showing what has happened with transaction prices at the auctions since March? Thanks for all your auction posts!

Thank you OrientExpress! Your post shows that transaction prices at auction are up again, which is in agreement with the higher average asking price in the listings I saw at Cargurus.

I'm surprised! Why buy a used Leaf at over $10k, if new ones are $14k?

OrientExpress, thanks for posting this data, it is very useful! Do you have an update on the latest values?

I am waiting to buy a used 2015 leaf and I see that prices are holding steady and probably increasing. This is very surprising to me given that there are more & higher range EV options on the market now. Or perhaps the 2015 lease owners are still holding on, waiting for the 2018 leaf to become available?

Hello OrientExpress,

you are doing an awesome job, thank you for posting this information. It allows to understand better what is the current value of Leaf of different years.

Can I ask you to post the same data for 2016 Leaf?
It's interesting to see how much the value of newer car is dropped...
