The launch of popular electric cars like Fiat 500e and Cadillac ELR, changed the price of cars in the United States. The best thing is that the curious public who buyed the vehicles in 2013, already thinks about changing cars, putting the price of electric cars down.
While 0 km of this category is U$ 30 to 35 thousand , the used ones are sold for about 25% to 30% for new value, sometimes less than U$ 8.000.
Another factor that should change the electric car market will be the launch of Model 3. With the price set at $ 35,000, Tesla Motors’ vehicle appears to be a level above the competition. With an autonomy of 344 km per charge (against 140 km of the Fiat 500e), the Model 3 should get a good share of the market for popular electric cars.
The problem is that, with so many reservations, Elon Musk’s company vehicle forecast is to begin production in 2017 while the first deliveries will be distributed only in mid-2018.
