How long do electric car batteries last?

When buying a new electric car you are more than likely going to receive a battery warranty with your car package. These are normally for 8-years or up to 100,000-miles, whichever comes first.

Currently, there are no actual facts to prove the length of a batteries life span as the technology is so new. We have seen a few high mileage electric cars that haven’t really suffered a small amount of degradation.
