How to increase Electric car Battery lifetime
In order to increase the electric car battery lifetime you should know some important rules. Miles don`t killed batteries more than time and poor maintenance.
You have to do next steps to increase lifetime of your electric car battery:
- Charge electric car battery fully
- Don`t drain the battery to low levels
- Don`t store without charge for long periods
It is comparable to very expensive cell phone more, than a car with an internal combustion engine.
Tesla has a long warranty, but if the battery`s capacity holds less than 25%, Tesla won`t replace it. Some reviews says, it seems that you will lose near 6% over 50,000 miles and 1% every 30,000 miles thereafter.
Some fans insist that the Tesla battery pack will last 500,000 miles with no problem. It`s enough to 12,000 miles per year driving, a total of 40 years of use along.
Somebody means that maintenance-free is a good thing, but it`s not.
Tesla vehicles require a maintenance too. The Tesla`s motors and gearboxes require lubrication like any other piece of rotating machinery. Are you really believe that the springs and chassis on a Tesla don`t wear like any other vehicle?
In addition, the electric motors have their own mechanical and electrical weaknesses, and they need repair too.
You will never need an oil change, but you still need to provide proper chassis lubrication and bearing lubrication.
