In short, you don’t have to worry so much about technology.
Although it is concerns about electric car batteries most of them have already been disproved, for now many people still think that the AC in these vehicles soon loses its capacity, which forces the owners to make expensive replacements.
We recently reported one about the experiences of a battery recycling companyand now the one specifically probing the batteries of electric cars has appeared Recurrent recent study, which revealed additional important details about used electric cars, writes the Green Car Reports.
According to data from Recurrent, those considering buying a used electric car needn’t worry. The company analyzed the data of 15,000 electric cars, which revealed that only one and a half percent of the entire fleet needed to replace the battery pack, due to its premature loss of performance.
Electric car batteries perform better than expected, so replacing them is not a costly surprise for owners
Liz Najman, a researcher at Recurrent, pointed out.
The company’s investigation also pointed out that the decline in battery performance is far from a linear process. In the long term, the reduction in capacity slows down significantly, but most owners will not experience this, because they sell their car before this happens, and in most cases, if a replacement is required, it can still be done within the factory warranty. .
Manufacturers of electric cars are aware of how well batteries work, it is no coincidence that Tesla guarantees its batteries for up to eight years or 100,000 to 150,000 miles (i.e. 160,000 to 240,000 kilometers), but other manufacturers , for example, Volkswagen and BMW also sell their electric cars with a warranty valid for eight years or up to 160,000 kilometers.
In addition, political decision-makers also direct companies to try to produce products that last as long as possible: in California, for example, a bill on clean vehicles would set the maximum rate of battery capacity reduction.
