Prices for Luxury Brand Used-Vehicles to Rise in 2012

A sharp decline in the supply of luxury brand used cars and light trucks will result in higher prices this year, said Jonathan Banks, senior analyst with the NADA Used Car Guide. NADA predicts the supply of luxury used vehicles up to 5-years-old will decline by 13% in 2012 compared to a year ago, resulting in an average price increase of 1.9% this year. “The falling used supply will raise used-vehicle luxury prices again this year, but overall appreciation will be mild by recent standards,” said Banks, in the NADA Used Car Guide’s latest report, 2012 Special Analysis: Luxury Brand Trends and Used Price Forecast.

Drivers need to plug in to recharge the battery. A number of companies are developing ways to cut the cord, to replenish the battery wirelessly with a mat that sits on the floor.
