I plan to lease our PHEV...I'm worried that the new presidential administration is going to roll back a lot of the EV incentives, and correspondingly auto manufacturers (besides Tesla) are going to lose enthusiasm very quickly for EVs. I can see Chrysler investing very little or even abandoning the Pacifica Hybrid within a year or two. So I don't want to be stuck long-term with a car that might be difficult to service and that won't command much resale value.
Or...the total opposite could happen...EVs continue to flourish and 3 years from now there is a pure electric minivan from Chrysler, Toyota, and Honda. In that scenario I also think the current Pacifica Hybrid might see a big drop in resale value when there are more/better options out there.
Basically, this: I can't post links so just Google "Tesla Aside, Resale Values for Electric Cars Are Still Tanking"
I've never leased before and overall prefer buying, but in this case given all the uncertainty around EVs I think leasing makes sense.
