15 car models that will see a huge price drop in September 2023

Car prices are falling across the board. According to Kelley Blue Book, average transaction prices have fallen 2.4%, or $1,212, since the beginning of the year — the largest decline in a decade. The average new car in America sold for $48,451 in August, while the average price of a non-luxury used car is about $20,000, according to Carfax data.

“After a turbulent past few years in the auto market, we are now seeing new vehicle pricing trends level off,” said Rebecca Redzewski, research director at Cox Automotive. “Dealers and automakers are feeling the pricing pressures, and with auto loan rates rising and inventory levels rising, new car prices appear to have hit a ceiling, at least for now.”

Similar factors contribute to the decline in used car prices. According to Carfax, slow rebuilding of new car inventory, rising new car prices, ongoing microchip shortages and rising interest rates are among the biggest factors.

Carfax noted that electric cars saw the largest drop in prices over the past year, falling by more than 22%, followed by luxury car prices. Electric vehicle price cuts were largely driven by Tesla. In July, the company said lower raw material costs and government tax breaks were reducing the cost of the car, Reuters reported.

RealCarTips analysis revealed that several Tesla models have achieved significant price cuts. Tesla Model S is currently $82,490 after down 31.5% from January Tesla Model Y is $47,853 after down 27.5% Tesla Model , which is a 20.1% decrease in price.
