The Lifespan of an Electric Car Battery

Most electric car batteries are lithium-based and just like any other battery, they will degrade over time, which means that they won't be holding charge as long as they used to do and the range of it will reduce.

If you overcharge the battery or try to charge it at the wrong voltage then it will degrade even quicker. Always make sure to check whether the manufacturer offers a warranty on the batteries because most of them do and these last from 8-10 years.
