Living with an electric car in Wisconsin: The Battery

One of my big concerns when I bought my 2016 VW e-Golf was how long the battery pack would last.  As we established in the previous e-Golf post, if it lasts as my daily driver for 5 years, it should effectively pay for itself.  I’m not terribly worried about the battery degrading that fast.

Fully Charged had a video about the host’s 2011 Nissan Leaf, recently.  Since battery technology has changed a lot in the past 10 years and the Leaf has an air-cooled battery, I don’t see it as a direct analogue but it is worth checking out the video anyways.
