How Long Do Electric Vehicles Last?

There are many benefits to purchasing an electric vehicle. They have a lower environmental impact, provide big savings on fuel, come with tax incentives, and even require less maintenance than internal combustion engine vehicles.

But are electric vehicles as reliable as gasoline-power cars? And do they last as long?

Understanding EVs

To understand how long electric vehicles last, it’s important to understand how they work, and what makes them different from internal combustion engine vehicles. Unlike gasoline-powered cars, which rely on the engine to run, electric vehicles use an electric motor and battery configuration.

The battery is used to store and distribute power, which makes it one of the most important parts in your hybrid vehicle. That’s why the lifespan of your vehicle’s battery can greatly affect the vehicle’s lifespan overall. Electric car batteries come with warranties up to eight years or 100,000 miles, though many are becoming available up to 200,000 miles.

It’s expected that electric vehicle batteries can last up to 200,000 miles or even longer. Some estimates put the lifespan of an electric vehicle batter even up to 400,000 miles with proper care and maintenance. Typically, you’ll see 15-20 years of use from an electric vehicle, with proper Volvo service and care.
