GM is hoping to erase all fears about the lifespan of electric car batteries by offering a standard eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty on the Chevy Volt’s battery pack .  The warranty also allows the driver to transfer it to another vehicle owner at no cost within that timeframe. By having the Volt battery come with a long-term warranty, GM is aiming to assure consumers of the durability of the Volt and other electric cars. As GM said in the press release, “all battery components [are] validated to withstand extreme temperatures, terrain and driving patterns.”  With a solid warranty to back that statement up, hopefully more consumers will be willing to buy the Volt or other PHEVs.
