2022 Volkswagen ID.4 Charging

When you opt for a new Volkswagen ID.4, you’re getting an electric vehicle that delivers plenty of performance on the Hanover roads. You can expect to enjoy your Volkswagen EV for many miles ahead thanks to exceptional engineering. EV technology has come a long way and many of them have been engineered to offer you many miles of driving for a long time. While there are plenty of advantages to owning an EV, we know that electric car battery life is one of the main concerns that you may have.

So, what is the average electric car battery life expectancy? With today’s technology, you can expect the main battery in most EVs to last around 10 to 20 years. That’s plenty of time to enjoy an electric vehicle before you have to begin worrying about the battery deteriorating on your Braintree drives. Learn more about electric car battery life today with the service experts from Silko Volkswagen!

Why You Need To Consider Your Electric Car’s Battery Life Expectancy

The battery life for EVs is around 10 to 20 years but why is that important? Many drivers are well versed in the maintenance of standard vehicles with an internal combustion engine (ICE). The internal combustion engine has been around for a long time and with proper maintenance, can last for many miles ahead. With that being said, electric vehicles are also designed to last you a long time, and that 10 to 20-year lifespan is impressive when you consider all the other advantages that EVs have to offer.

So, why is it important to know the average battery life of an EV? That’s because replacing the battery components on an electric vehicle can be costly. While there are exceptional EV warranties available, knowing the cost of an EV battery replacement can help you prepare your budget in case anything does go wrong in the future outside of the warranty coverage. The cost of replacing an EV battery can range anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000. However, it’s important to note that the cost is slowly decreasing as time goes on. 

How To Get the Most Out of Your Electric Car’s Battery Life

While your EV likely has impressive warranty coverage, there are also some things you can do to ensure that your electric vehicle battery won’t let you down during your Norwood drives. Here’s how to get the most out of your electric car’s battery life:

  • Keep your battery life around 20% to 80%
  • Avoid extreme temperatures
  • Seldomly charge with DC Fast Charging stations
  • Resist frequent spirited drives

Be sure to check your owner’s manual as there may be additional information regarding how to maximize your EV’s battery life.
