Does Tesla provide free battery replacements?
Unfortunately, Tesla does not offer complimentary battery replacements. The original battery is covered by Tesla's warranty for 8 years or unlimited miles.
Within that time frame, the cost of a new battery may be covered under the guarantee if it was replaced because of a manufacturing flaw.
Furthermore, Tesla provides a Performance Battery warranty that lasts for four years or 50,000 miles.
However, the coverage is limited to problems that diminish battery capacity.
After the warranty expires, the cost to replace the battery will vary with the age and condition of the vehicle.
The cost of replacing a Tesla battery includes labour, disposal, and other associated fees; if the car has not been properly serviced, this cost could be greater.
If a battery needs to be replaced, Tesla customers can take advantage of financing options that spread the cost out over time.
