Replacing Lithium Ion Battery

Mon Mar 15, 2021 3:08 pm

From reading elsewere on this forum, I gather my 2015 lithium ion battery guaranteed is for 8 years, to 65% capacity. If it's rated to
82 miles, then the guarantee would kick in when range gets into the low 50's. Mine started to lose range this year. It now charges to 72 miles pretty consistently (mild weather right now).

I was just wondering if anyone has had the Li-Ion battery replaced, and if so, what their experience was. Mostly I would like to know the cost. Or whether the warranty just covers bringing you up to 65%.

There are older posts discussing this, but I wondered if there is any new information:

Welcome to the club the most i see now is 74 miles and the car has 34,000 miles 2015. Its like the other guy was saying considering to sell off his car. I got a bolt 2020 back in November for 18k. so far that's my daily driver. I am still deciding to sell of the spark. Sad thing is it doesn't have any value :( like what am I going to do with $3000 or let alone $5000. that barely pays for car insurance nowadays

I'd wait a bit longer I guess. That doesn't seem that bad. My 2016 with 22000 miles has a GOM of 55-60 and a capacity of 11.3kWh. The GOM started at 85 or so - obviously sometimes a bit higher since it's a GOM - pretty sure values of 88-90 were not that uncommon when brand new. Starting capacity was somewhere between 18.5kWh and 19kWh.
