Went to a local dealer and saw a black ELR with only 14k on the odometer. Couldn't believe my eyes. I thought it was brand new at first glance. It was apparently owned by the dealer's daughter. Sticker on the window said $39k but I'm sure they'll do a lot better. Since I 've vowed to never own another black car, thought I would mention it on the board. It's located in NH.

They would be luck to get 19K, let alone 39K for a 4 year old car ... Parts availability is also an issue for an out of production car

OMG, you better sell that 2013 Volt quick. They are out of production also.

Seriously, 39K is probably too high, but 19K is also unrealistically low.

5 year resale data on Volt was 32% in some books. Not sure the ELR would even do that. Realize they calculate the 5 year even for cars not that old based on what is happening now

2014 ELRs suffer a double whammy, being four years old and having the better 2016 which started 15k lower. So take the 2014, modify its price to like 40% of original price. Drop the 7500 Fed from that and a reasonable portion of that 15k price difference from 16/14. It pretty much should be under 30k to worthwhile

A 2014 is three years old. 2018s don't come out until fall of 2017.

I'd pay $35k without blinking if it has ACC. REDD ELR is the best car I have ever owned. period.

I paid $43k for mine new after rebates. $39k is a little high.

Finally, someone who can math.

$39k is just silly. My all-in price, after taxes, rebates, fed credit, etc., was about $38k, and mine's fully loaded. I could see paying $30k-32k for your example, if it wasn't just a base M.

Drop the $7,500 tax credit first, before depreciating. Your math ends up with the '14 at like $15,000, which is not reasonable.
