When To Replace Your Hybrid Battery

2022 Nissan Rogue

If you’ve been driving a hybrid car on your Avondale commute, you’ve no doubt been enjoying the savings on gas. But you might be wondering when you can expect to have to replace your hybrid battery. How often do you need to get a hybrid car battery replacement? You can expect to get at least 8 years out of a new battery, usually longer. How much does a hybrid battery replacement cost? The staff at our service center wants to keep you informed, so let’s take a closer look.

 

How Often to Get a Hybrid Car Battery Replacement

Peoria drivers can generally expect to drive their hybrid car for years without worrying about shelling out for a hybrid car battery replacement. A hybrid battery will typically last at least 8 years or up to 100,000 miles since US manufacturers are required to warranty them for that long by law. But some experts, like Auto Trader, say that these batteries often last 10 to 15 years or around 120,000 to 150,000 miles. Some drivers have reported not needing a hybrid battery replacement for 200,000 or more, but this is the exception.

How Much Does a Hybrid Battery Replacement Cost?

To be perfectly frank, hybrid batteries are not inexpensive. So, how much does a hybrid battery replacement cost, exactly? The average hybrid battery replacement costs from $2,000 to $8,000, depending on the make and model of the car. The upside is that hybrid cars tend to require less maintenance than your average gas-powered vehicle, which is good news for your pocketbook. Check with our parts department for our latest rates.
