Toyota Prius is the second consecutive hybrid to top Aston Barclay’s monthly used car desirability index
Posted 18 November 2021
Aston Barclay has revealed its latest November used car desirability Index, with the Toyota Prius the most in-demand model across both its physical and online auction channels.
This was the second month in a row a hybrid has taken this accolade following the Hyundai IONIQ topping the charts in October.
The desire for low emission vehicles in the used market has been on the rise throughout Q3 and looks set to continue into Q4 with several low and zero-emission vehicles featuring in the top 25.
Joining the Prius were the Lexus NX and RX, Nissan Leaf, Hyundai IONIQ, Tesla Model 3, and Jaguar E-Pace.
Meanwhile, the demand for premium SUVs and saloons remains strong comprising 15 out of the top 25, with some nearly new models making more than their original list price.
Martin Potter, Aston Barclay’s Managing Director – Customer said: “Our latest index highlights the growing desire for electric and hybrids in the used car market and despite prices far outweighing equivalent petrol and diesel cars. It’s important that EVs and hybrids stamp their mark on the used market over the coming years as we transition towards 2030.”
Aston Barclay’s monthly index takes into consideration three key metrics: web views prior to sale, number of physical and online bids per sale, and the sale price achieved as a percentage of CAP average.
