The batteries are still going strong
One of the big issues with electric cars has been the publics fear of the batteries going bad after a short period of time, and that the pile of used batteries will grow.
Many people pictured big mountains of used and defect batteries, and used this as an argument against the electric car being useful and climate friendly.
They were wrong.
We have heard many examples of electric cars going hundreds of thousands of kilometers by now, but the Tesla Model S belonging to an American dude, who has driven his car 675.000 kilometers or 420.000 miles since 2013 is a new world record, and the car still has over 80 percent of its capacity left.
