Are you currently in the market to buy (or sell) a Volkswagen California in Shanghai? Vehiclus analyzed the used automotive market of all towns in China to determine a pricing profile of various Volkswagen models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. To maximize your profits when selling your California (or to make sure to not be overcharged when purchasing a Volkswagen California) it is of value to know all price-determining factors.
Shanghai is a town with 22315474 inhabitants. However, there are not many Volkswagen California for sale on the market. Therefore, the supply is low and the demand depends on a multitude of parameters such as brand reputation, mileage, and brand competetivness.
As shown below, cars of the car manufacturer Volkswagen and specially of the model California devaluate in a very customary process. The mean price of the California will be lowered by 14% ($22,923) after only 1 year. After three years, the car typically goes for only 60% of its original asking price ($16,349) while it will only be valued at 28% of the MSRP after 7 years ($6,928). The California's value after twelve years is only 13% of its initial price depending on its condition of course.
One more way to quantify car depreciation is to study the loss of value over miles driven. The Volkswagen California depreciation curve below illustrates this phenomenon for Shanghai. The California looses most of its resell price (ca 46%) within the first 30k km driven. The typical price for a California at that usage level is ca $14,721. After that the devaluation slows down: at 90k kilometers the Volkswagen California is valued for $8,412 in Shanghai and for $3,754 at 180k kilometers driven.
The last parameter that heavily effects the price of a second-hand car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below shows the deflation of a Volkswagen California according to its year and its condition.
