The study was released about 10 days ago, and based on projected resale values of new Gas/Electric and 100% electric vehicles, 2013 model year.
The Prius was the gas/electric hybrid.
I was surprised to hear the Prius recovery period was so short, something like 5.5 years if memory serves me right.
The Volt was something like 15 years, obviously longer than most Chevys will even last. But it sure will look good, dead by the side of the road...

I will try and find the study online. I also doubt the vehicles were California-standard vehicles, but I could be wrong...

Booked: Veendam - Montreal to Boston July 28, 2018

Washee Washee! Happy Happy!
