Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 Buyers' Best Pre-Owned Car; Great Value For A Second Hand Car

Talking about used cars, the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 is said to be buyers' best option. With the ongoing popularity of electric cars and new releases for 2017, interested buyers can consider buying these 2 cars because of their value.

The Nissan Leaf is considerably the car that is worth every penny. In fact, it became America's best-selling electric car after it was released in 2010.

Interestingly, Nissan Leaf even sold more than any electric cars around the world. The used 2011 model has a based price of $5,000 while the 2014 models cost $8,000. For an electric car with great features and zero emissions, this is a great price.

The 5-seater 2011 Nissan Leaf model, for example, has a 120-volt trickle charger, wireless connectivity, and navigation system. It has 60/40 split-folding seats at the back to extend its cargo area.

These low prices were brought about by the federal income tax credit, states and Nissan incentives upon purchase. Buyers might even be surprised that they might even be able to buy a 2017 Nissan Leaf Model for only $13,000. However, buyers are not so eager to purchase the used cars for now since they are anticipating that better deals will be coming their way once the new model arrives in September.

Another used electric car in the market that is the BMW i3. A used model can be bought for $15,000. But consider that BMW is known for its great interior and elegant exterior, matched with a powerful acceleration. So even if buyers prefer the BMW i3 second-hand cars, they need not worry. Price depreciation for electric cars is very common just like in Nissan Leaf's case.

But the good thing about the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3 electric cars is that the mileage is low and usually well kept. This is a good option instead of buying the new model that has similar features but with a much expensive price.
