That's always the answer to "How long" questions.
Have you heard about the EV power train warranty that comes with these cars?
This question is always asked of EV owners.
It's not like a 12 V Lead Acid battery where one day it's working and the next it's not.
It's a long slow Degradation. And this car let's you plot it.
So the question might be "When
do you replace the battery?"
When you have a 60 mile range Spark EV? 50 miles? 40, 30?
I'm a cheapazz. I can see myself living just fine with a 40 mile range Spark EV. But then I have a great DCFC network in town.
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC. +85k miles.
Mostly free charging! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try car died again, 2nd try / cost $800. 3rd try fixed the problem.
