    that's all EVs anon. They're all designed to wear out their batteries in ten years to force you to buy another.

      Oh no, not ten years. How ever will I cope?

      In the 90s we traded in our cars every 5 years or so. Most people aren't classic car collectors who baby the same automobile for decades

        Theoretically even used batteries should be worth a lot thanks to all the valuable materials used to make it. If lion recycling catches up it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect in the future replacing a used battery to cost almost nothing.

        My car is 16 years old and it's not even weirdly old in regular traffic, it's pretty average. A car that can't last at least three decades should never be allowed out of the factory. The basics have always stayed the same as long as cars have existed. They have 4 wheels, steering, brakes, accelerator. Multiple seats for passengers. Nobody cares if the next year's model has RGB-lighted cupholders or a tablet screen with a selfie camera.

          newer models handle better and have more safety features, also the keep you alive and instead of flinging you out the window because they are build from steel.

            You need at least a decade of purchase intervals to notice any differences. They don't change that much per year, if at all. Most changes are superficial instead of life or death matters.

        so in other words, that it most decidedly not the case today, and battery replacements are a huge expense, at an age when the drivetrain has many years left but the battery is, with current technology, shot. Say, after 8-10 years? Call me when major manufacturers are offering a "for as long as you own the vehicle, even if that's 30+ years" warranty on their EV batteries. I'd wager money Tesla for one will never do such a thing.

      Unironically this, you have to consider an EV as a really expensive throwaway product, more so if you have a little bump and a battery cell was damaged since they'll ask for more than a brand new car to replace the whole battery since no one offers cell replacements.

      So just replace the battery for like $10k. Everything else in the vehicle will easily last another 50 years because there are almost no mechanical parts in it.

      Don't they all drive Nissan Leaf?

      Nissan used to be the #1 EV maker worldwide, much more than Tesla.
      It's a real shame they stopped innovating, they could have become a powerhouse but now they're irrelevant.

    the auto industry in japan is essentially a cartel led by toyota, and they decided that (1) EVs are a meme and (2) no one in japan should produce them because that would undermine conventional manufacturers
    it's crazy that toyota and honda will become 1st-world-only because fricking chinese EVs are going to kill them in every single shithole outside of europe and america

    there were these news some months ago about something like 2 million unsold cars toyota had to retire from china because of the new chinese vehicle emissions standard

        what do you mean?
        being electric reduces the complexity of the machine by an order of magnitude. like, compare the number of engine parts, the number of moving parts. the computers are hard to fix but that's all modern cars, electric or not
        efficiency wise they are more efficient than regular gas cars, and on the same bracket as modern diesel engines (unless you are in a city, then electric is better). plus, as the grid becomes greener you automatically produce less emissions

        EVs have 1 major flaw at the moment. And I do own a EV so you cant claim I am bias.
        If the battery fails on your EV after 8-10 years you have a choice. $12,000-$24,000+ for a battery replacement or just junk it. After 10 years without a new battery there is no market for EVs built in the last 15 years once they hit 10 years.
        Other types of cars can be 20 years old and still be reliable. People love to buy the Kei Japanese imports after the 25 year rule because they know they will still work as they were designed.
        Open source the battery replacement software/firmware and let 3rd parties fix it at a reasonable price.

          No one cared about them being a meme until China became no. 1 in terms of EV sales and innovations.
          Heck, the world was fully backing them along with gubmints passing laws in favor of EVs. Suddenly, EVs are now a threat and needed to be investigated lmao.

    It's not like you have much choice if trying to buy an EV in Japan. Japanese brands, especially Toyota, are not willing to seriously commit to EVs because they think the current tech is a dead-end. Toyota has been pouring tons of R&D money into solid state batteries which they belive is the only way to make EVs viable but it's taking ages to materialize.

        the charging stations are a dead end too
        if better tech comes along all those stations turn into ewaste literally overnight
        meanwhile a gas station is just three underground tanks and some pumps that dish it out.

    So does anyone have actual good figures on long term battery failures yet? I know a lot of early Nissan Leafs suffered premature battery failure, due to shitty thermal mgt on their batteries, but there are now plenty of ten+ year old Tesla Model S and Chevy Volts still on the road, so that should be enough vehicles to do a useful study on - is battery failure after ten years a 1%, 5%, 10%, etc chance should be an answerable question now.

    Apparently Japan can't have good EV's because their electricity grid is too shit to charge them at home.
