My understanding is the service life of 100K for Prius and other hybrids has been largely discredited. The battery packs last for 150k at least, then cost only a few thousand or so to replace.
Yeah ... ONLY a few thousand or so....
It’s not about battery life, it’s about motor, transmission and drive train life. Lightweight cars start falling apart at about 100K because they are lightweight.
Who is going to spend $2500 on a new battery when the rest of it could fall apart at any time.
The problem is that the envirowacko’s only look at mileage and not at the total picture of a vehicle’s cost/benefit ratio.
