BF Forecasts has developed an in-house system which combines macro economic environment, as well as macro economic predictions with the actual new car market development throughout Europe.

The Residual Value Model analyzes:

  • macro economic variables
  • segment assumptions
  • historical analysis of car segments and performances
  • vehicle lifecycle adjustment
  • brand-model assumptions
  • subjective factors (as a result of test drives, tests, and crash tests) and projected future trends.

This residual value model is used to create custom residuals for our clients’ specific purposes.
