Congrats on the new purchase! Tesla vehicle batteries are designed to outlast the vehicle itself, but as of now your Tesla Model S battery should last between 300,000 and 500,000 miles. The Tesla Model S should also retain 80% of their performance range, even once surpassing 200,000 miles.
Tesla owner Elon Musk had his company start offering a minimum 70% battering retention guarantee for the first eight years (or 100,000 to 120,000 miles) of owning your vehicle. But unforeseen problems arise, including issues with your Tesla’s battery pack.
Not sure if your Tesla Model S battery is past due? Keep an eye out for these warning signs:
  • Drop in driving range
  • Range of battery degrades over the 30% warranty criteria
  • Tesla notifies that there is something wrong with your battery
A Tesla Model S battery pack replacement will cost you anywhere between $12,000 and $15,000, but data suggests that Tesla batteries hold up well over time.
