I was browsing the Volvo broker V90/V90CC deals and went down the wagon rabbit hole.
For 2019’s, Car gurus is showing 108 new/demo 2019’s available, 43 of which are white. The average discount is 20% (random sampling of best deals, completely unscientific) which is dragged up significantly by T5 RDesign FWD wagons (25% average). T6 inscriptions (4) are the least publicly discounted. This unsold amount of 2019’s is 1/15th of v90 sales in 2019. from 2018 to 2019 there was a nearly 1200 unit decline in v90/v90cc sales. (source). So far through May, only 311 have been sold (Corona, Epstein, V60/V60CC all factors). So LH is likely responsible for moving about 4-5% of the entire V90 inventory if not more.
The average discount before incentives on new/demo 2020s is 17% on LH. With incentives (Costco/First responder/Loyalty, using an average of 4k, per the spreadsheets some brokers can stack all 3), the average discount is 24%.
Many 19’s have well over 500 lot days on them, one has been on the lot for 630 days. I hope it has had a rotation.
Side note, there was recently a v90 Ocean Race in Charlottesville, VA. I called on it and it was just sold for 42 or 43 CPO, said they had 20ish out of state calls a day on it. If you recall several of these sat on lots with decent discounts after everyone at swedespeed forums did their OSD on these. It certainly won’t be AMG wagon status but might have a gentler depreciation curve.
Anyone with insights into what these dealers are going to do to move these 19’s, because you can get a 20 at a better price right now.
Edit: Since the bear showed up, that initial discount in the calculators is inclusive of manufacturer incentives, and the additional incentives I averaged are the costco/responder/Loyalty. Please note the bolded completely unscientific.
