This is How Fast The Electric Cars Batteries Age

This is How Fast The Electric Cars Batteries Age

Technology
Geotab has collected data from electric cars worldwide. On average, their batteries lost 2.3 percent of their capacity a year. Here are the factors that shorten the life span. The telematics company Geotab offers, among other things, its services to vehicle fleets, and now they have collected the company's statistics on how the electric cars' batteries degenerate over time. The data, which together covers 1.8 million days, comes from 6,300 electric cars around the world. It shows that the batteries on average lose 2.3 percent of their capacity per year. This means that an electric car with a range of 241 kilometers after five years has lost about 27 kilometers of that capacity. However, according to Geotab, the annual loss means that most batteries will survive the expected life of t...
