Tesla offers 8-year warranty on Model S battery pack

Tesla Motors says that if the battery pack fails in your sexy Model S electric sedan for any reason except deliberate abuse, you can have a replacement, free, for eight years.

That warranty length matches mainstream automakers’ pledges about their electric-car batteries. But Tesla goes a bit further.

The Model S’s 85 kwh battery pack is warranted for eight years or unlimited mileage. The 60 kwh pack is warranted for eight years or 125,000 miles, whichever comes first. The usual is eight years/100,000 miles.

“We don’t think anybody could put enough miles on to kill the (85 kwh) pack. That could turn out to be wrong, but we have half-a-million miles on one in the lab,” says Tesla CEO Elon Musk. “Even the 60 kwh customers will be able to take it well over 200,000 miles.”
