The more cycles a battery does, the more it’ll degrade and lose capacity. In a car, this would manifest itself in decreasing range; theoretically a car would eventually become impractical to run because the range would be so small.

There are four main factors to consider in caring for the battery in an electric car:

– Overheating
– Overcharging or high voltage#2013 #FORD #HYBRID AND #ELECTRIC VEHICLES HV BATTERIES AND DISCONNECTS. Read more ... »
