How often do Tesla batteries need to be replaced?

I'm thinking about buying a Tesla, but I'm a little worried about their battery life. How many years do Tesla batteries last?

Answer
“An average electric vehicle (EV) will need a replacement battery when it has lost 20% of its range. Most users have reported Tesla battery loss at only 5% after 100,000 miles.
Poing being, Tesla batteries will rarely (if ever) need to be replaced. You’ll probably need to replace your car before you need to replace the battery.
However, driving an electric car means stopping to recharge your battery on long trips. And charging stations still aren’t as common as gas stations, so you’ll need to plan your trip accordingly.
Road trips aside, the average American only drives 40 to 50 miles a day—leaving you plenty of time to charge your battery at night.
In short, battery replacement isn’t much of a concern with newer EVs like Teslas. More concerning may be paying for insurance. As a luxury EV, Teslas can be very expensive to insure!
