It's reasonable to assume that the batteries will last the life of the car, but reality has shown us that this is not ncessarily true. Check out the Problems and Troubleshooting section for examples of battery replacement.ElectricTroy said:Toyota says their batteries will last the life of the car.
Toyota uses Nimh.
Honda uses Nimh.
So it's reasonable to think the Honda will *also* last the life of the car.
Please don't try and educate me regarding EVs. I was subscribed to the EVDL 10 years before you got kicked off.Also, GE is performing a test with 6 rav4 EVs. Their nimh batteries have 120,000 miles & still going strong. These are heavily-stressed batteries that are routinely overcharged & undercharged.
A lot of things should happen. My Insight, with just over 100,000 KM on it SHOULD NOT have a failing cat. Yet the reality is that it does...If a heavily-stressed battery can last over 120,000 miles, a never-stressed battery should last loooooooong past the engine's life.
