Investigation: Critical failure will be fewer in new electric cars

Since 2016, less than one percent of all electric cars have had their battery pack replaced because the capacity has dropped to an unacceptable level.

It is not because of declining capacity that electric cars must have changed the battery pack. At least that's not the main reason.

In a new survey, American Recurrent Auto points out that only one percent of electric cars built since 2011 have needed a new battery pack. That figure is based on data from 20,000 electric cars.

However, this does not mean that the batteries in electric cars have become completely error-free since 2011. Because there are still a large number of recalls due to battery defects to take into account.

But if the figures are cleaned of recalls due to manufacturing defects, the number of battery replacements has fallen from 30 percent in electric cars of the year 2011 to 1 percent of replacements in models from the year 2016 onwards.

According to the American survey, the very small percentage of battery replacements in newer electric cars is connected to the fact that the batteries are simply made better.

When you look at all the electric cars in the survey – i.e. those from 2011 up to and including today – an average of 2.5 percent of them have needed a new battery.

On the other hand, it can be very expensive if the entire battery pack – and not just parts of it in the form of individual cells – has to be changed. Several Tesla owners report extremely hefty bills on that account. Read more about it here.

Another thing is that electric cars can be very expensive to repair other damages. For example, bodywork damage can escape completely.

For a Fisker Ocean, for example, a dent in the mandrel meant that the owner's insurance company would rather declare it a total loss than pay for the repair. Read more about it here.

At home, it also suggests that something is completely wrong when it comes to electric cars. In any case, an estimate from the Ministry of the Environment shows that almost 100 electric cars that were less than 5 years old have been taken off the Danish roads and ended up as scrap.
