49 – Smart ForFour – Electric Drive

The Smart ForFour – Electric Drive is another vehicle whose value free falls in the first year of ownership. This is likely because, although it gets plenty of publicity for being a green car, the benefits of driving it seem to end there.┬áThe Forfour ED sounds a promising prospect for city-bound electric vehicle (EV) drivers, but the electric car revolution continues apace and it faces tough competition. The Smart ForFour is worth 36 percent less than what its owner paid for it (approximately $14k), after only one year.
