Do Electric Cars Hold Their Value?

Due to the nature of how they’re put together and the format of the battery power, electric vehicles do tend to depreciate in value a bit quicker than their petrol and diesel alternatives. Of course this depends on how many years that have been driven and how many miles they’ve done, but you can still get a good deal when selling your EV.

 

What is the Lifespan of an Electric Car?

The lifespan of an electric vehicle will depend on the make and model of the car, but most manufacturers have a five to eight year warranty on their battery. That being said, most projections suggest that a standard electric car battery can last between 10 and 20 years.
