Together with the electric motor, the battery makes up the core of any electric vehicle. Batteries vary in capacity which influences charging times and driving range of electric vehicles.

On average a lithium-ion polymer battery lasts 8 to 10 years, depending on how much you drive. Reaching the lifespan doesn’t mean that the battery doesn’t work anymore, but the capacity falls to 70 - 80 % and the range of the battery begins to decrease. Hyundai electric vehicle batteries are warrantied for 8 years or 160,000 km, whichever comes first.
