Tesla batteries are designed to last between 300,000 and 500,000 miles, according to Elon Musk. This means that the average person can expect their Tesla to last for many years. The battery is not the only part of the car that is built to last, however. The body and powertrain of the car are designed to last up to a million miles.
Even after replacing the battery, the car still has plenty of life left in it.Research conducted by NimbleFins on 557 Tesla vehicles showed that the average battery capacity was 90%, even with 150,000 miles on the odometer. This suggests that Tesla batteries may be able to last even longer than 300,000-500,000 miles. Jessika Richter, who studies circular economy policies at Lund University, explains that the European Union has ambitious policies in place to promote a lifecycle perspective in electric vehicle battery management.Tesla batteries are not only long-lasting but also efficient. Depending on the model of Tesla, the battery can retain an average of 90% capacity after 200,000 miles.
A survey of 350 Tesla owners in Europe revealed that their cars lost about five percent of their capacity after 50,000 miles before falling much more slowly thereafter.The cost of replacing a Tesla battery is not yet known, but it is possible to replace it before reaching the 300,000-500,000 mile mark. The efficiency of a Tesla's battery depends on its transmission technology and weight. At a recent shareholder meeting, Elon Musk said that batteries are “essentially high-quality mineral” and that it is “much better to obtain materials from old batteries than from mines”.Tesla batteries are designed to last for many years and provide efficient energy storage for electric vehicles. With state-of-the-art transmission technology and low weight, Tesla batteries can retain an average of 90% capacity after 200,000 miles.
