How Does Battery Degradation Affect Electric Vehicles?

What is Battery Degradation?

  • The type of battery (lithium-ion, lithium iron phosphate, etc.)
  • The type of car (hybrid vehicles are subject to less degradation than pure EVs)
  • How you drive your car (miles travelled, frequency of charging and discharging, etc.)
  • Your climate (cold weather can negatively affect performance)
  • The number of times you’ve charged and discharged your battery.
