    Interesting article and linked report on EV trade in values and depreciation. The Models S tops the charts for all three model years covered in the report with average trade in values and price retention as follows:

    Would be interesting to know how these averages stack up against those being offered through the CPO program.

    Not really a fair comparison. I don't think they're factoring in the $7,500 federal tax credit (yes, while it's still there). This makes the hit look a lot bigger on the cheaper cars than it does on the higher end cars.

    Edit - nevermind. I'm wrong. Even with the EV tax credits applied to the cheaper cars, MOST doesn't match the Tesla retention.
