  1. Hi Tanim, thanks for the great insight every week.
    Just want to make it clear the definition of data “Current Week 3-Yr Resale %” means “% of Initial RRP”? and 3-Yr means it is including all data of 3 years old vehicles whatever their KM is?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Tai,

      Yes, “Current Week 3-Yr Resale %” means “% of Initial RRP”. Yes 3-Yr means 3 year old vehicles, however the data is reflective of cars that have traveled 30,000 km per year on average to make the comparisons apples for apples. Hope that answers your questions.
