Just purchased a 2015 cmax with 23k miles for 15k. Its a SEL with the glass roof power gate and nav. Anyways I was wondering what the top speed in EV is on the 15's. I noticed on Ford's site the 2017 hybrid it says 62mph. But I thought ford did a software update on the 2013 and upped the speed.

Thanks

This question was also discussed here, but no 2016/17 owner ever reported on top speed - still wondering.

Congrats korax234.  Great buy, sounds like you got all of the goodies.  Hope it was treated well and has all of the updates, if there were any for 2015.

 

Happy cruising,

Nick

This model must have cost $26K new. Is this the kind of depreciation I am looking at for my 2015 cmax? I wonder how prius' hold its value.

The short answer is: yes given the current market conditions.

 

There are a lot of factors affecting the value of a car over time.   Hold a new car long enough and the overall loss in value of most cars will be virtually the same given the same initial cost.  Also, you bought the wrong car if you are looking for a C-Max to hold its value relative to a Prius especially in the early years of ownership primarily because of it's overall lower variable operating cost (fuel, routine maintenance, unsheduled maintenance).  However, a 10 year old C-max and a 10 year old Prius with 200k miles will likely have virtually the same loss in value (given similar initial costs).  But, the Prius will provide more economic benefit than the C-Max after 10 years of ownership.

 

Having said the above, if gas prices were to spike to $5 a gallon, the short term value of a used C-Max will increase significanty.  If one worries about resale value of their car (implies one may not hold onto cars very long), then one should strongly consider leasing since one would have the option to purchase the car at the expiration of the lease at a fixed price.   Since I hold onto my cars for a long time, I buy my vehicles (rather than lease) based on comfort, convienence features, and performance and don't worry about resale value.
