We have always known that at some point you are going to have to change out the batteries in that new Tesla you just bought. But at what cost and when? This is determined on how you use it and take care of it. This may seem similar to that of an I.C.E. vehicle, but it is not.
When your batteries deplete to a point that recharging them just doesn't get you the life you expected back, then it might be time to change out your pack. But at what cost to you will this be? Most consumers are not aware of the costs associated with battery replacement or how to prolong their life. So, when the batteries dead and they have to replace it, the sticker price could come a shock.
In the end when you think about how much you can lose over the life of your standard I.C.E. vehicle, it sometimes pales in comparison to what the overall costs of an EV could work out to be.
