I heard in a video from a Porsche engineer that though the battery is structural it is removable with the proper lift equipment. That's the same with other EVs. Like the Bolt EV, it's not trivial but doable.Aren’t they basically a part of the frame ? I think it’ll be impractical to replace them.
I’m cautiously optimistic about not really needing to. The older Tesla have a solid reputation for fairly minimal degradation (in the grand scheme of things) and Porsche has reserved ~10% of the battery pack to reduce charging wear and build in replacement capacity.
With battery costs and capacities changing so rapidly, it's kind of silly to ask for a quote now on something you wouldn't need for years.And has any dealer quoted the price of battery replacement after 160,000km or 100,000 miles?
