How much will Tesla's battery capacity decrease over time?


How much will Tesla's battery capacity decrease over time? Approximately 1% every 30,000 miles or after 100,000 miles you will have approximately 92% of your original battery capacity.

More details from The Christian Science Monitor:



Based on 84 data points from the 85-kWh version of the Model S and six from 60-kWh cars, the study concludes that the Model S will retain about 94 percent of its capacity after 50,000 miles, with losses thereafter shrinking to about 1 percent per 30,000 miles. That means that after 100,000 miles, the typical Model S is projected to retain about 92 percent of its battery capacity and range. That translates to a range loss of only about 21 miles, from 265 to 244 miles. The highest-mileage car in the study, which had about 52,000 miles on it, still retained about 94 percent of its battery capacity and range.
