Are you looking to buy (or sell) a Audi A2 in Shanghai? Vehiclus analyzed the used car market of all towns in China to establish a pricing profile of various Audi models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. In order to maximize your earnings when selling your A2 (or to make sure to not be ripped off when purchasing a Audi A2) it is useful to know all price-establishing variables.
Shanghai is a metropolitan area with a population of 22315474 inhabitants. However, it is hard to find more than five Audi A2 on the car market there. Therefore, the supply is small and the demand depends on various of parameters e.g. brand reputation, brand popularity, and used car pricing.
As illustrated in the figure below, cars of the manufacturer Audi and specially of the model A2 loose their value in a very conventional way. The mean price of the A2 will be decreased by up to 13% ($28,351) after only one year. After three years, the car usually costs only 61% of its original selling price ($20,522) while it will only be valued at 32% of the original price after 7 years ($8,764). The A2's value after 12 years is only 13% of its first price depending on its condition of course.
One more way to quantify vehicle depreciation is to look at the decrease of value vs miles driven. The Audi A2 depreciation curve below describes this phenomenon for Shanghai. The A2 looses most of its resell price (~ 50%) within the first 30,000km of its mileage. The mean price for a A2 at that mileage is $18,231. After that the depreciation plateaus: at 90,000km the Audi A2 is sold for $10,728 in Shanghai and for $4,847 at 180,000km of mileage.
The last factor that significantly determines the sell price of a second-hand car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below describes the devaluation of a Audi A2 according to its year and its condition.
