Isn’t it true that no one knows how long the batteries will last, and that having to replace them could cost several thousand dollars?
The jury is still out on the longevity of the hybrid battery bank. To date, however, they’ve proven themselves to be fairly hardy. Toyota is pretty confident; they say that their batteries are expected to last the lifetime of the vehicle, and that lab tests show that they can go the equivalent of 180,000 miles with no deterioration. We have no idea if Ford’s results will be similar. Honda says its battery packs are designed to last 10 years under normal driving conditions. Honda, Ford and Toyota all warrant their battery packs for eight years or at least 80,000 miles.
Still, the batteries are the unknown variable in the long-term costs of maintaining a hybrid vehicle. All we can say for sure is that if you drive a hybrid far enough, you’ll eventually need to replace the battery pack. As an example, the Prius battery pack will set you back a little over $2,000 when the time comes. But if you’ve driven a car for 150,000 or 200,000 miles, that’s not so terrible, is it? It’s actually more of a concern for people buying high mileage, used hybrids.
Will hybrids break down more often?
We certainly hope so! Remember: we’re mechanics. But, so far, hybrids have proven remarkably durable. There’s a good reason for this. Most of each hybrid vehicle is made from existing technology: brakes, tires, exhaust system, the conventional gas engine, shocks — even the classic, pine tree air freshener.
As of this writing, the earliest hybrids are now more than 10 years old. We’re about to find out how the cost of replacing the batteries will impact the perception of hybrids — especially those that are about to come onto the used car market.
