How long do most electric vehicles last?

I was thinking of buying an electric vehicle, but I want something that will last. How long is the lifespan of most electric cars?

Getting an electric vehicle is a smart investment in sustainability.
As electric vehicles are still new, it’s hard to say quite how long an EV’s battery will last. Most electric vehicles in the U.S. come with a warranty of up to eight years or 100,000 miles, but the actual average lifespan varies. Some consider the average battery life of an EV to be around 65,000 miles.
That said, there are other components that go into the longevity of an electric vehicle, and it is possible to replace the battery. It’s important to read your manual carefully and take care to maintain proper upkeep of the battery and other components of your EV to prolong the lifespan.
Remember, you’re going to need good car insurance for your electric vehicle, and insuring your car can cost you a pretty penny.
