One of the biggest worries surrounding electric vehicles has nothing to do with how long they can drive and everything to do with how long they will last. EVs haven’t been around long enough to properly research what happens to the batteries over time, but Volkswagen’s latest release hopes to quell that fear.
According to Autoblog, Volkswagen (VW) has to not only rebuild the public’s confidence in the brand, but it also has to improve the public’s perception of EVs. The announcement of an eight-year battery warranty might help. The company says the batteries will maintain at least 70 percent of their “usable capacity” for that duration.
VW ID. vehicles will be sold at different tiers with different maximum energy capacities. VW says its EVs will have a maximum range of between approximately 205 to 342 miles (by WLTP standards). Seventy percent of 205 is 144 miles, and 70 percent of 342 is 240 miles.
