Electric Car Battery Life Expectancy

2022 BMW X5 xDrive45e charging

The exciting all-new BMW iX and BMW i4 can provide hundreds of miles of range on a single charge. Equipped with a precision-made electric motor and a high-capacity electric battery, these dynamic EVs can be easily and quickly recharged at home or on the road. However, since no battery can be expected to last forever, how long do electric car batteries last? If you’re planning to upgrade to a new EV, you should know that electric car battery life expectancy is currently around 10 to 20 years. You can also have additional peace of mind knowing that most EV manufacturers protect their batteries with long-lasting warranty coverage. Learn more about electric car battery life in this guide from the experts at BMW of Warwick.



Why Does Electric Car Battery Life Expectancy Matter?

How long do batteries last in an electric car? The advanced technology that goes into an EV has been developed to extend the electric car battery life expectancy to between 10-20 years. This not only makes them better for the environment but also easier to maintain in comparison to traditional gas-powered vehicles. That being said, many potential buyers in the East Greenwich and Providence area still have some reservations regarding electric car battery life. This hesitancy is understandable since electric car batteries can cost between $5,000 and $15,000 to replace. The good news is that the price of an electric car battery has decreased dramatically over the last decade, and we expect that trend to continue. In addition, the BMW electric vehicle battery warranty will also cover you for eight years or 100,000 miles.

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

While the BMW EV battery warranty provides ample coverage, you will still want to make sure that you enjoy the full BMW 14 and BMW iX range by keeping up to date with scheduled maintenance. You can also help extend the electric car battery life on your BMW EV by doing the following:

  1. Don’t charge your vehicle every night, and try to keep your vehicle at somewhere between 20%–80% battery life.
  2. While cold temperatures can drain a battery’s current charge, extreme heat can reduce a battery’s total capacity. So, try to stay out of the heat whenever possible.
  3. The time it takes to recharge an EV battery depends on your chosen method. Although DC Fast Charging Stations are very convenient, overusing them can degrade your battery over time. We recommend that you charge up more slowly whenever possible.
  4. Exhausting large amounts of power over a short time span can reduce your electric car battery life, so you should ease up on the accelerator and drive in a relaxed, mild-mannered way.
