Niro PHEV resale values

Our PHEV is very likely to use less than 4 fill ups per year. At 400 mile gas range that is only 1600 miles. Over the year the PHEV likely will be driven 13,400 miles pure EV.



In pricing resale values of ICE only cars the year and the mileage come into the calculation.


With a PHEV the electric motor has only 20% of the wear and tear an ICE has. Also the electric motor removes a lot of the stress on braking. It appears if mileage alone is used in pricing then a PHEV driven non electric for most of say 15,000 miles will have the same mileage as one mostly driven pure EV.



Should or does KIA have an hour meter on the hybrid gas engine that would if it showed a very low number of hours help get increased value on resale for those who drive mostly EV mode?

I don't know but it would nice to have an ICE hour or total revolutions counter.

Should they? Yes. Do they? I doubt it.

Why would you think that the depeciation cost on your vehicle is based purely on the number of hours or miles that you car has gone in gas mode? Would you not also then have to start to add in the total loss of capacity inside the battery that you use. There is the figure for wear on the moving parts inside the car such as axles and control rods for steering. The engine as well turns on and runs even when you are in EV mode for heat as well as self diagnotics periodically. There is a whole load of factors that you could single out to apprase the value of a car. But likely they just go by the visual state of the car and a general number based on how many miles the car has done and that is based more on averages for many cars. Some might be worth far less and other far more depending on how they were driven.
