Everyone has a different opinion about Electric Vehicles (EVs). Some people consider them a good alternative to petrol and diesel and some believe that it is too early to buy them now.

These are significantly more expensive than their counterpart vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). The most expensive part of these EVs is their battery pack, which gives them energy.

A shocking case has come to the fore regarding the replacement of EV batteries in China.

How much does it cost to replace the battery

When this person took his damaged EV to the dealership for repairs, he was told about Rs 62 lakh to get the new battery pack installed.

The report claimed that this was one and a half times the purchase price of his Polestar 2.

However, the company reportedly said that the actual price of the battery is $57,900, or about Rs 46 lakh. Some of the charges were also for other repairs of the car.

The biggest headache for EV owners is the cost of their batteries. The capacity of EV batteries available in the market degrades over time, which leads to a gradual decline in their range.

That’s why it is very important to replace their battery after a few years, but this is not a small thing because EV battery pack is not as cheap as inverter battery. The battery pack of Tata Nexon EV in India is available for around Rs 7 lakh.
