Around the £17k mark is what I would aim for.
You might find specialist EV dealers will give you a good price close to what you would want from private sale, but then I don't think you would struggle to sell one at a good price, so probably little effort to get more money for it.

Would I sell....often wondered that myself! I know the Zoe was just a short term 'trial' at the moment, and if I ever needed to use a car on a regular basis I would want something closer to the Model 3....! So do I cash in now knowing the prices are strong, or hope they don't drop much while I wait an indefinite amount of time to see if I need a car for more regular commutes...don't know!

Even with the newer hatch EV's coming through, we know they are going to be around the £25k mark, and unlikely to drop to as low as £15k for a good few years, so the i-ZE40 will still represent good value.

Hypothetically speaking, what would you expect to get for a 1 year old white one with 23k on it?

Would you even sell it at the moment?
That’s a lot of miles in one year. Hypothetically speaking, will the car continue to do that many miles?

Not without a steady supply of suspension related parts I wouldn't have thought! :)

It's been faultless so far however.

Are you insinuating that it might be wise to take advantage of its value while relatively young?

Well that’s the question. Don’t know if I’ve got the answer.

Will it work out cheaper to do 60k in the same car and sell at the end of warranty?

Would it be better to sell at 2 years old and 40k miles with one years warranty still left?

With the money you lose every time you change cars, maybe keep it for 5+ years and consider whatever you sell it for as a bonus.

Love a Lidl bit of free charging (see what I did there).

Also, don’t let the feds catch you without a number plate. This isn’t California!

I looked for used ones and ended up finding that new was not just cheaper! But also had the new car perks (free charger, warranty, etc)

Whe. I bought mine in March, the cheapest idyn ze40 used (2-3 years old) were 17-20k, I bought mine new for like 18.
