More reading for you my son, you can read a hole heap about early Tesla's. More recently all LG battery power cars in the US got recalled more than once over fears of explosions.This just isn't happening. I've not read of any cars needing batteries replaced as a general rule due to age.
You'll need to show me stuff on early Teslas getting their batteries replaced as a general rule. I'm not saying it doesn't happen at all, but it's not happing in large numbers as far as I'm aware.More reading for you my son, you can read a hole heap about early Tesla's.

So with Tesla we know the tech. has improved everyone else we simply don't know.
No, maybe it isn't, and I know Tesla are way ahead of the curve in terms of battery management and lifetime.Yes, the original leaf didn't have a BMS (Battery Management System) and so the batteries were not really "looked after" by the car. Big mistake on their part and pretty much every other EV out there has a BMS. Even then, the cars and batteries are still usable although range is obviously more limited.
Battery degradation due to age isn't at all common and using the Leaf as an examples is unfair on the entire EV market.
EVs are really expensive. The first generation of the non tesla brands will probably all need a battery replacement soon, at a high cost too.
Wow that looks like an amazing trip. How many stops on the way to and from the tip of Norway?
Well, I've finally been able to order my MY LR through work today
Ive been waiting for this for a very long time, I went with the 20" rims too so fingers crossed, I won't be waiting long at all.
I can't see a date since its through a fleet company however, the guys over on the Tesla motor club forum are watching the RCC America which is a vehicle carrier due at Southampton on the 27th May. There's no confirmation that its carrying Tesla's but it does seem to coincide with the date estimates people are being givenOrdered mine at the weekend too! Black with the 20" rims... showing delivery between May 28th and June 25th... but we will see I guess.
I'm prepared to see mine in July / August, any sooner and it will be a bonus.
Looks like Giga shanghai will be back up and running again on Monday, we could still see those late May deliveriesNo rush - my M3 is perfectly fine for now - only issue I have is the trade in price was only for 60 days I believe so will need to see what happens when that lapses.... Don't fancy a drop of £2/3k
