Inside EV has just reported on a Ford document saying that the 3-yr lease residual on the Mach e will be 39%. That's in the same ballpark as BMW i3 leases were, before BMW discontinued offering leases on the i3. These seem to be real world numbers and the only way they will improve is if a Manufacturer artificially inflates the residual, as BMW did for the first two years of the i3. It could be that actual resale will be higher in 3 years, as EV's become more common and the average person considers purchasing one. But, if you are an early adopter of an EV, it has to be for some reason other than financial sense unless you are contemplating keeping it for a bunch of years.
