I would hope so for that kind of coin. The problem remains that when they need replaced, and they will, 1) it's not something you're going to be able to do yourself very likely and 2) it's massive money...as in time to buy a new car. My financial advisor recently learned the lesson with her pristine old Honda. Guess what she bought new this time around? yeah, back to a good old fashioned fuel efficient gasser
And, please, spare me the eco-friendly BS regarding electric vehicles, as well as any other carbon-neutral political non-sense. The masses have proven their complete lack of knowledge (or willingness to admit) the toxic nightmares, waste, and by-products (trucked to, and buried in, their local land-fills) that are created by the industrial scale production of the materials and processes required for these so-called eco-friendly, carbon neutral technologies. Nothing is for free or w/o harm in life. Every battery production facility known to man is essentially a super-fund clean-up site in the making. You want to drive something, anything, pollution is going to happen. Period. The pandemic has demonstrated the best way to save the environment and the planet.
Point being your everyday car battery used to last a helluva lot longer than 3 or 4 measly years if maintained...why not now? With all of our wonderful technological advancements and whatnot? Oh, yeah, not selling enough thus generating enough profit. EHow's all that play out with eco-friendly and save the planet?
