    Does anyone even see the possibility of them increasing the range on the 500e, I mean where in the world are they going to put more batteries, this looks like FCA taking a stock hit to me come real soon.

    My residual is going to be around $20K after about $5K in lease payments. Being that I purchased an Abarth at $20K, then sold it back to them 8 months later at $12K, I think I'll tell them I'll buy out my 500e for no more than $2K. Or they can have it. Good luck Chrysler.

    i got a quote from Chrysler Capital, to buy the car out will cost me $24000 and change.
    maybe the actual dealership would offer something more reasonable.....
    i'll call around and see if there is any other offer.

    I just turned in my 2013 500e lease with its residual purchase price over $23k and bought a 2015 for $7800. I found the eBay prices higher than in California since people from out of state where they couldn't originally be bought were grabbing them. In CA I saw several clean 2013's go for $5800 and 2015's for $7500 retail on Craigslist, cars.com etc. The dealers are also willing to deal (though a few paid too much for used 500es last fall and are now underwater on them).

    Just exactly how is this sustainable for FCA?

    Let's see. Start with a car that loses you $14,000 ever time you sell one. Then give it lease prices so low that you send loads of them out the door. Make sure that it's barely competitive with other EVs right out of the gate and then never update or improve it. Then when satisfied lessees want to buy them, refuse reasonable offers and sell them for thousands less at auction instead. As a bonus, make sure that your lease rates are still as low or even lower than before so the people that were willing to buy their old one are likely to once again lease a fresh one instead for you to lose money on.

    Yeah, I can't figure it out either...
