|The survey of over 350 owners of the Tesla EVs, found the charge capacity of their batteries dropped approximately 5 percent after 50,000 miles. However, beyond that charging capacity was lost at a much lower rate. If the present trend continues, then the batteries should have close to 90 percent capacity still at about 300,000 km or 185,000 miles. Even at 800,000 km or about 500 thousand miles, the batteries should still have about 80 percent capacity.|
