drivers are development - once again - corona crisis and chip deficiency. But in the used car market, they beat in double ways: On the one hand, for long delivery times increasingly new car customers in the end but for used, on the other hand, the offer is much thinner than usual.
"It's just very few cars to come to the market," Says Thomas Pickruhn, Vice President of the Central Association of German Motor Vehicle Trade (ZDK). "The second year in a row lacking new registrations of company cars, day facilities, rental cars, which usually come to the market relatively quickly as a boy used», he explains the mechanism. The result: "At the moment we have less used cars as customers."
also Peckruhn sees a significant price increase in used, even if he judges a slightly lower at 5 to 10 percent. "Currently not the time for used car snaps," he says. However, it is strongly on the equipment. "Partly there are currently cases in very popular vehicles, where young used buying more costs than a corresponding new car that would only be available with a long delivery time."

New cars have become more expensive. "We come from a time of vehicle overproduction into a time of vehicle deficiency. This leaves prices - even with new cars, there is currently less discount, "says DAT expert white. And peckruhn emphasizes: "New cars are also partially shortened by the semiconductor crisis. In some months, the trade only has halfway many vehicles get like normal. "
A quick relaxation is therefore not in sight. Alone because the missing new cars from today in the future will be missing on the used market. "We will also have the high used car prices 2022," says Pickruhn and adds: "For the trade one must say: Thank God. Because the semiconductor crisis meets us again harder than Corona. "
also knows at the earliest 2023 at the beginning of normalization on the market. "Probably the one who is happy and satisfied with his vehicle and currently not dependent on a change," he summarizes the current situation.

"This is due on the high promotion for new cars, on the other hand, the fact that the technology has evolved and customers are more likely to buy an outdated product." However, E-cars are still a niche product on the used car market.
Also plug-in hybrids have not become so much more expensive. Unlike the diesel - these vehicles would be significantly more expensive than in the first years after the diesel scandal, says white. "Also, because of them have come to the market since then and fewer vehicles."
The high fuel prices play hardly a role on the used car market, how white explains. "Currently we do not see that because of the high fuel prices, especially economical used cars would be more demanded."
