Battery replacement

Post by Vespa » Sat May 25, 2019 10:49 am

This has come up on Topix................... JLRAB0008 - Warranty Policy Clarifications: Purchased Batteries and Prior Authority Definition Does that mean the end of battery replacements under warranty? Can anyone find out with a Topix full access please.

It only re-states the fact that genuine Jaguar batteries have a 3 year warranty and that it only applies to 12V parts (and excludes others like coin cells in the key etc).

I wonder just how much the batteries cost on the new electric cars and how long will they last???

VW have just announce for their new ID range the following:-
Volkswagen will provide an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty on the batteries in its new range of ID electric cars and the battery guarantee maintains that the battery will retain 70% of charge at 100,000 miles or 8 years whichever comes first. I would think this would be an industry benchmark going forward. Now await the competitions response.

And at the end of the 8 years we will charge you £12000 for a new battery unit plus £800 to fit plus vat at 20%. The old battery will be disposed of in some far off land. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

More than that for a big battery, the good news is they can be remanufactured and repaired.

I recall the I-Pace has a decent warranty, 7/8 years and unlimited mileage rings a bell

Makes buying a used vehicle with little or no warranty a huge gamble with replacement power packs possibly more expensive than the car value.
