So what should you expect from your battery after a couple years? I don't think most people know and that uncertainty will keep many from taking the plunge and purchasing their first battery electric car. The answer is information. Manufacturers and dealers need to step up their game and provide this information. The customer has to feel comfortable about the purchase or they won't make it. Worse yet if they buy an EV and then it doesn't live up to their expectations because they weren't informed about battery capacity loss.
I wrote an article for plugincars.com on this topic recently. Rather than write a new post here on the same topic, I'd like to direct anyone interested to my plugincars.com post. Just click on the links below. I am also working on a more comprehensive battery capacity loss post that I'll put up here soon.
