Mercedes-Benz EV Battery Life

Mercedes-Benz EQS Electric


Are you thinking about buying or leasing an electric car such as the new EQS or EQE, like a lot of Rochester Hills drivers have done, but you’re concerned about having to eventually replace the electric battery? You won’t have to worry about that, thanks to the generous Mercedes-Benz EV warranty. You see, all manufacturers of electric vehicles in the U.S. are required to warranty the battery for at least 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. But the Mercedes-EQ battery warranty goes even longer than that. How much longer? Keep reading to find out.



The Generous Mercedes-Benz EV Battery Warranty

So, how long do EV car batteries last, usually? Some experts say that these batteries often outlast their warranties and continue to function for 10 to 20 years or around 120,000 to 150,000 miles. However, the Mercedes-EQ battery warranty is good for 10 years or 155,000 miles, whichever comes first. So, a Troy driver who buys a new Mercedes-Benz EV would typically trade the car in before the battery would ever need to be replaced, otherwise, they can take advantage of the Mercedes-Benz EV battery warranty.

How to Get the Longest Life Out of Your Electric Car Battery

While the spectacular Mercedes-EQ battery warranty can provide Rochester owners with peace of mind, you may still want to know how to get the longest possible life out of your battery. Here are some things you can do to optimize your EV’s battery life:

  • Don’t charge the batteries every night
  • Try to keep the battery levels between 20%-80%.
  • Keep the car out of extreme heat as much as possible.
  • Don’t use DC fast charging for every charge. Change it up with slower methods from time to time.
  • Don’t exceed the speed limit and keep the car at a constant speed.
