Obviously i would expect some difference but there seems to be a huge difference between the Parkers dealer value for my leaf (2014 24kW 7k charger 27k miles) and what I see on forecourt and private.

Is it just that everyone is optimistic and not bothered about actually selling?

Parkers: £6,115 - £6,635 dealer (£4,295 - £5,005 private)

I am seeing quite a few advertised £7995 - £8600 and up (some with SOLD label)

Last year I advertised mine here (excellent low mileage) at £8900 obo and got no offers. I took oit off the marker as I needed it for a while, but am considering putting it back out there but am a bit confused what sort of fair price to ask.

Any thoughts please?

How quickly do you need to sell? My experience of selling things is that a clean and tidy car advertised with all the pertinent information on spec, history, etc. and with lots of good quality photos on the advert will sell for 25-50% more via e.g. Autotrader, than a couple of smudgy photos on Gumtree with one line of description, particularly if you are prepared to wait and don't accept the first speculative low offer.

Parkers numbers arent always accurate. The Glass' book is better but costs money and even then isnt perfect.

You just need to look at as many sources as possible and come up with a price you think is sensible. 9 grand for a 2014 car with the 24kwh battery seems a lot to me personally. I recently reconned my 2017 30kwh Tekna model was worth about 10k based on ebay and autotrader prices, its on 52k though.

This was a private sale just recently: Nissan Leaf Acenta 24kW 2014 Silver Electric EV Auto | eBay
and sold for 6.5k

A colleague of mine just bought a 13plate sunderland-built 24 Acenta 3.3 with 55k miles for £6200 from a dealer.

Check WBAC - you might be surprised, but the usual WBAC caveats apply.

Generally it seems that used demand for EVs is strong and prices are above what some of hte price guides suggest.

Contact a few EV specialist dealers - WeAreEV, drivegreen, eco-cars, etc. They might either commission sell for you or buy the car from you direct. We sold our Leaf to WeareEV last summer.

Looks like they don't do private valuations any more.

This may be more informative though: Evan Halshaw have offered £6222 (assuming excellent condtion no faults, which it is) So I presume I can at least add a £1000 to that for a private sale.

But I'm also not sure what parkers dealer price means, is it what they will offer? so again realistic to add quite a bit to that for a private sale (based on excellent description/photos etc. as mentioned above by niggle)

You could also contact ecocars (I know of them on Twitter) they buy cars for their customers (bespoke arrangements) and should be able to give you a fair valuation, better then dealers
