How Lengthy Does A Tesla Battery Final In Australia?

How lengthy does a Tesla battery final in Australia? That is turning into extra of a standard query now that Tesla has doubled its presence on Australian roads. Teslas are in all places! Somebody lately commented that they’re turning into as frequent as cockroaches and cane toads. As these questioners seem like real, I assumed I’d perform some research to dispel their issues about how lengthy a Tesla battery lasts in Australia.

My typical response is to cite the guarantee of 160,000 km. However I’m quick coming to the conclusion that this reply is now not related. I learn lately that some battery recyclers within the US are complaining that the batteries are usually not degrading quick sufficient and they want extra inventory. Truly, CleanTechnica wrote about this manner again in 2016.

There are only a few Teslas which have executed excessive mileage in Australia. Till the appearance of the Mannequin 3 three years in the past, Teslas have been fairly uncommon on our roads. Nevertheless, a request for info within the Tesla Homeowners Membership of Australia Fb web page revealed proof that Tesla batteries are outlasting and outperforming their unique expectations.

How lengthy does a Tesla battery final?

Mark Tipping, Nationwide President of the Tesla Homeowners Membership of Australia, responded: “My 2015 Mannequin S P85D has pushed 271,000km. Tesla lately suggested me that the HV leads between battery and motor have some corrosion and they’re changing them beneath guarantee. I didn’t know however an alert was despatched by the automobile to Tesla!! The battery experiences 6.9% degradation.
My different MS P100DL+ has executed 200,000 km and I lately stretched that to a 600+ km vary in Central Oz. Battery degradation is just not a actuality in a contemporary effectively managed EV.”

The proprietor of a Mannequin S, Mannequin 3, and Mannequin Y experiences that he has pushed over half 1,000,000 kilometers in his 2018 Mannequin S. He does airport pickups and dropoffs within the Byron space and has in all probability executed the best variety of kms in Australia. However, we nonetheless don’t understand how lengthy a Tesla battery lasts!

David Nye experiences that his first S85 purchased in February 2015 has now pushed 312,000 km with about 10% battery degradation. “Truly, most degradation occurs in concerning the first 12 months or so. It then ranges off fairly dramatically,” David provides.

These solutions defy the FUD-creating Fb posts that allege {that a} Tesla battery must get replaced after 8 years (the guarantee interval). That’s equal to saying that an ICE engine solely lasts so long as the guarantee. That is then added to hypothesis {that a} battery pack might price as much as $30,000. Possibly we should always cease calling it FUD and name it future concern coupled with large ignorance and misinformation. FFMIM?

We additionally encounter confusion between the 12-volt battery utilized in most ICE vehicles (and Teslas) and the long-range battery in a Tesla. ICE automobile batteries die, lifeless, like a dodo. EV automobile batteries have a unique chemistry and higher administration, in order that they degrade. You gained’t cease lifeless on the freeway or get caught in your storage ready for the RACQ.

Anecdotal feedback from different international locations speak of taxis in Scandinavia which have achieved over 750,000 km; and ones in Holland which have executed over 900,000 km. Even in New Zealand there are Mannequin S’s which have exceeded the guarantee interval with minor degradation: a 2014 Mannequin S P85+ with 150,000 km (6% degradation) and a 2015 Mannequin S P90 with 170,000 km on the clock and about 8% lack of vary proven on the sprint.

As for my Tess, we now have solely had her 3 years and pushed over 90,000 km. As a consequence of an over-the-air replace to our battery administration software program, removed from having battery degradation, we now have an additional 6% of vary in comparison with new.

So, how lengthy does a Tesla battery final in Australia? I believe the most effective reply you can provide is: lengthy sufficient.
