Are you in the market to buy (or sell) a Volkswagen Phaeton in Shanghai? Vehiclus studied the used auto market of all metropolitan areas in China to determine a pricing profile of various Volkswagen models depending on their age, technical condition, optical condition, and mileage. If you want to maximize your earnings when selling your Phaeton (or to make sure to not be overcharged when purchasing a Volkswagen Phaeton) it is a good idea to understand all price-determining factors.
Shanghai is a town with currently 22315474 inhabitants. However, there are usually not many Volkswagen Phaeton for purchase on the market. Hence, the supply is low and the demand depends on a multitude of parameters for example car model reputation, mileage, and used car pricing.
As seen below, cars of the make Volkswagen and especially of their model Phaeton loose their value in a very standard fashion. The average price of the Phaeton will be decreased by up to 14% ($88,064) after only one year. After 3 years, the car typically is valued at 63% of its initial selling price ($62,081) while it will only be worth 29% of the MSRP after 7 years ($28,142). The Phaeton's value after twelve years is only 10% of its original price depending on its condition of course.
One more way to quantify vehicle depreciation is to study the loss of value vs miles driven. The Volkswagen Phaeton depreciation curve below describes this phenomenon for the city of Shanghai. The Phaeton looses most of its value (~ 47%) within the first 30k km of its mileage. The average price for a Phaeton at that mileage is $57,131. After that the depreciation slows down: at 90k km the Volkswagen Phaeton is priced for $32,146 in Shanghai and for $16,168 at 180k km driven.
The last factor that significantly influences the sell price of a used car is the technical and optical condition of the vehicle. The table below illustrates the devaluation of a Volkswagen Phaeton according to its year and its condition.
