Tesla Model S 85kw Battery Replacement Cost. Cost for most companies is $300~$600/kWh but many speculates it's less than $200 for Tesla. Nissan has just announced a $5500 replacement charge for the 24kWh battery so it's reasonable to expect to get a 85kWh battery for (way) under $20,000 in the future.
Very few Tesla battery packs have needed replacement, and those than have were often due to owner misuse. The best way to do daily charging is to keep the state of charge between 20% and 80% as much of the time as possible.
A long, long time ago (before the Model S was ever shipping), Tesla offered a "guaranteed battery exchange" - i.e., insurance plan. For $12,000 up front when you bought the car, you could have the battery replaced at 8 years, no questions asked. If you needed it sooner, you could get it sooner by paying...
Answer Wiki. 4 Answers. , Own a Model S and a Model 3. It costs about $225 to replace a Tesla battery. I assume you mean the 12v battery that powers things such as the electronics in the cabin and other 12v devices. If you mean the main battery, that’s a lot harder to say because it’s not something that people need to do.
He’s asking how low does the battery capacity have to drop to trigger the replacement of the battery under warranty. IIRC, Tesla will replace the battery under warranty if capacity falls under 70%.
Tesla is now claiming 35% battery cost reduction at ‘Gigafactory 1’ – hinting at breakthrough cost below $125/kWh. Recent studies show that average electric vehicle battery cost dropped 80% in 6 years down to ~$227/kWh. It’s exciting progress for the electric vehicle industry, but it’s still not enough to make long-range electric cars affordable.
The fact that Tesla batteries show very minimal degradation after 5 years has been a very unexpected surprise. In the case of a Tesla, you would not have to factor in battery replacement. Also, keep in mind that Tesla's battery warranty does NOT (and never did) cover capacity degradation.
In March of this year, there was a minor uproar over Tesla Roadster batteries being “bricked,” a way of saying that the battery pack was fully depleted and needed to be entirely replaced. The controversial incident revealed that Tesla was exacting a price of $40,000 to replace the 53-kWh hour pack in the Roadster.
There is a slight increase in the battery weight but the total range increases over 35% from the original Roadster. The price of the battery upgrade is $29,000, including all labor and logistics, which is equal to Tesla's expected cost. It is not our intention to make a profit on the battery pack.
How much will a replacement battery last and what will it cost? Submitted by Tesla2018 on November 12, 2017 I usually keep my cars for about 15 years and drive about 12000 miles a year.
