Regarding this "Battery Replacement Option" I have read in the concerning blog:
"We have received many requests for a Battery Replacement Option. We are happy to now offer this option for all three battery variants. This option will provide you a new battery anytime after the end of the eighth year at a fixed price. Prices are as follows: $8,000 for the 40 kWh battery, $10,000 for the 60 kWh battery, and $12,000 for the 85 kWh battery. You will be able to purchase this additional option through your MyTesla page in the near future."
My questions are:
- In case of the 85 kWh battery, the fixed price is 12,000 USD, is that including the labour and time of the Tesla Motors mechanic? Or is that something we have to pay extra for?
- What are the fixed prices for the European customers?
- Does the Tesla Model X also have a "Battery Replacement Option"?
