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.
500e's are showing up on used car lots here in New Jersey. I am seeing 2013's with 30k to 15k miles priced at $8k to $5.5k.
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?
Yeah, I can't figure it out either...
