Three electric cars score are in the top five worst depreciating vehicles in Europe according to a new report from Glass' Information Services. It's easy to get wrapped up in certain aspects of a new car, like its speed, agility or looks while ignoring more pragmatic things like cost of ownership or residual values. The AAA Your Driving Costs report, though, indicates that these more mundane aspects of car ownership may be what are leaving us so darn broke each month.

Electric cars may be great for saving money on gas, but a new report from Kelley Blue Book, commissioned by USA Today, shows that EVs might not be a great value option for their first owners. The study found that compared to gas-powered vehicles, EVs tend to lose significantly more of their value in the first five years of ownership, corroborating a study conducted in the UK, which we reported on earlier this month.

When it comes to new cars, more green now means less green later. The UK-based CAP Automotive, which regularly publishes auto-depreciation reports, recently released a study that found that electric vehicles lose their value substantially faster than their gas-powered counterparts.

Seven of the 10 cars with the least depreciation are Japanese, headed by the Honda Jazz, and all of them are small. Five of the 10 cars with the greatest depreciation, headed by the Maybach 57S, are English, and none of them are cheap.

Anybody want to buy a used Maybach? The idea may sound entirely preposterous — an anathema, even, to the brand's nouveau riche market — but it may be the best way to get your hands on Mercedes' super-lux big brother.

Of course that's the positive way to look at it, but the flip side is that, as demonstrated by recently released statistics, Maybach has the highest depreciation rates of any car on the market.
