Abstract Hybrid vehicles have recently emerged as a growing market segment in the automobile industry. The value these vehicles hold over time has important implications for consumers. Vehicles that maintain their value better over time are likely to be in higher demand, and thus auto-makers are keen on producing more and more of these vehicles in the next few years. Using a multiple variable regression analysis, this thesis analyzes the major determinants of resale value in used cars. Current market values of used cars compared with their original prices are used as data. This study predicts that hybrid vehicles maintain their value better than traditional vehicles due to environmental perceptions as well as fuel efficiency ratings.
