Will my battery degrade quickly in comparison to a ICE car? After 200k, no reason a battery cant maintain 90% on average. Many 1st generation EV's did not have thermal management systems like the current EV's so battery deletion was quicker. Combustion engine average lifespan is 180k miles, so EV's match or better.
Nicad-Battery (Nickel-Cadium) Older style batteries not the same as the newer LFP (Lithium-Iron Phosphate batteries) that are even more robust.
Why you are better to charge batteries to 80% max rather than 100%? If we think in context of ICE (IInternal combustion engine) cars. The health of the engine is degraded if you 'red-line' the revs everytime you drive . Likewise it is better management to charge a car battery up to 80%. Many cars are set to charge to 80%. Kia EV6 charges to 80% in 18 minutes.
What happens if my battery says 0% charge? Just like a petrol car we would never recommend to leave yourself without reserve fuel, however it will in reality have approx 10% charge remaining.
Infrastructure Most people drive on average 20 miles a day. 142 miles a week. Many just charge their car overnight at home, so given distance on a full charge is from 282 miles you should have a s much confidence of range as you do in a combustion engine. There are now more than 61,000 public charge points at 22,000 locations and these numbers go up every day.
