Electric Car Battery Life Expectancy

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV Charging
 

You probably already know that the BMW lineup of electric vehicles offer impressive range and plenty to love when it comes to luxury in Marietta. A lot of people have concerns about electric car battery life expectancy when it comes to the overall life of their electric vehicle. And with the idea that two thirds of vehicle sales will be electric by the year 2040, you’ve probably got a lot to think about.

 

 

However, if you’re concerned about electric car battery life, you’ll be glad to know that an electric car battery will last about 10 to 20 years on average! And with the federally mandated electric car battery warranty, you won’t have to worry at all. Read on and learn more with United BMW, your service destination.

Why Does Electric Car Battery Life Expectancy Matter?

Electric vehicles are better for the environment and easier to maintain when compared to traditional gas-powered vehicles. Even with this in mind, potential buyers have some reservations when it comes to electric car battery life. This is the most expensive part of your vehicle and can cost between $5,000 and $15,000 to replace. That being said, the price of a new battery has dropped significantly over time, so it might be much cheaper in Johns Creek as time passes.

And we also should mention that federal regulations demand that every manufacturer offer at least 8 years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first) warranty on your battery, so you’ll be protected for quite a while.

Maximizing an Electric Car’s Battery Life

Even with warranty protections, you probably don’t want to schedule service for a battery replacement anytime soon. And for those who buy EVs for environmental reasons, you’ll want to keep that battery full of rare earth metals going for as long as possible. Here’s our guide to caring for your EV battery:

  • Don’t charge your battery every night, and try to keep between 20% and 80% battery life as much as you can.
  • Stay out of the heat when you can, because extreme heat can reduce a car battery’s total capacity.
  • Charge up slower when you can, and try not to overuse DC Fast Charging Stations.
  • Try not to go all-out and drain your car’s battery quickly. Even, mild mannered driving is the key.
