Why do cars eventually go bad? Can an EV vehicle last 20 year assuming you might have to replace the battery pack one time? Will an EV's total lifetime cost be less the gasoline powered car? If you can double the length of a car by 100% you can significantly lowered the cost of the car. I think Elon talked about motors that would last a very long time.
