Telsa claims that the battery in the Model S will last about ten years. Still let's hope you don't do anything that will cause it not to hold enough of a charge. A new battery pack for the car costs $30,000
(see also this here
). Of course, batteries do slowly lose their charge so you might simply find that the car has 90% of the range that it used to have after a couple of years. Telsa does offer an option where you can pre-pay $12,000 when you buy the car to have a battery replaced when you need it. That means the price of the car is really $92,000, not the $80,000 advertised.
