The next generation e-Golf is supposedly going to have double the range of the current model. Folks may be waiting for them. You want to see depreciation, look at used Nissan Leafs.

The e golf's range was the issue, right? 125 miles "estimated"? It was a line filler from what I remember, they didn't expect it to sell much..

Low mileage makes sense with an e-car; nobody is going to do 100 mile RT commutes in one. Just as in your case, this would have been car n+1.

But for almost the same money (or even less, with more miles on the odo), BMW i-3s are around.
And a teammate just picked up a new Nissan Leaf at a huge discount; the incoming model will have a significant range boost, but for his purposes 50 miles was fine.
