As the popularity of hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow, so too does the concern among owners about the performance and longevity of their batteries. This anxiety, or what Infinitev have now labelled HEVBRA (Hybrid Electric Vehicle Battery Replacement Anxiety) can be a significant source of stress for EV and hybrid owners.
Understanding Battery Anxiety
One of the main causes of battery anxiety is the concern over decreasing battery performance. As a battery ages, its capacity to hold a charge will gradually decrease, leading to a decrease in the vehicle's range (specifically in EV's) and overall performance. This can be especially concerning for EV owners, as the range of their vehicle is a critical factor in their decision to purchase an electric car.
Another major source of anxiety for hybrid and EV owners is the potential high cost to replace a battery. While the cost of batteries has come down significantly in recent years, they are still a significant expense, and many owners are worried about the sudeen and high cost of a replacement hybrid or EV battery.
Check the health of your battery now
Having recognised this emerging HEVBRA trend, Infinitev leveraged its extensive knowledge and experience to develop an easy-to-use battery condition calculator that allows owners to quickly (less than 90 seconds) and easily check the condition of their battery, what it means and important next steps.
