- Industry analytics company ALG announced the Audi e-tron retains its value better than any electric vehicle
- All-new Audi Q3 is anticipated to carry a higher residual value than any other vehicle in the Premium Subcompact Utility class
- ALG’s Residual Value Awards (RVA) recognize vehicles in 27 segments forecasted to retain highest percentage of their MSRP after a three-year period
The Audi e-tron midsize SUV, the first fully electric Audi model, and new Audi Q3 compact-premium SUV, have both earned ALG Residual Value Awards for 2020. ALG’s Residual Value Awards (RVA) recognize vehicles in 27 segments that are forecasted to retain the highest percentage of their manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) after a three-year period. The e-tron earned the designation for the electric category, while the Q3 won in the Premium Subcompact Utility segment.
For more than 50 years, ALG has used its market insights, industry expertise and leading analytics to become the benchmark for forecasting vehicle values. In 2000, ALG launched its first program recognizing the automotive brands and products that provide best-in-class value to consumers.
The Audi e-tron and Q3 were selected through an analysis of used vehicle performance, brand outlook and product competitiveness. Eligibility for the award requires a manufacturer to have vehicle entries in at least four different segments. To account for differences across trim levels, model averages are weighted based on percentage share relative to the entire model line.
Audi will be among the winning automakers honored during the Los Angeles Auto Show on Nov. 20, 2019, in Los Angeles.
