Denver drivers who have switched to hybrid vehicles have often found themselves enjoying the lower fuel costs that come along with this kind of vehicle. But one cost that does come up is that of the hybrid battery replacement. How often do you need to get a hybrid battery replacement? You can expect to get at least 8 years out of a new battery, usually longer. How much does a battery replacement cost? Let’s take a closer look.

 

 

How Often Do You Need a Hybrid Car Battery Replacement?

The high-voltage battery in your hybrid car is designed to keep you on our Lakewood roads for years to come. So, how often do you need to get 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?

So, how much does a hybrid battery replacement cost? That can depend on the model of your car and where you get it replaced. Generally, you can expect a hybrid battery replacement to cost from $2,000 to $8,000. But check with our service department for our latest rates.
