What is the lifespan of batteries for electric vehicles?

Generally, the battery that is purchased along with an electric vehicle should last for the average lifespan of a car. However, the user profile and external factors like the temperature management, for example, impact the aging of the battery system. To offer the user the greatest possible security, some manufacturers apply a business model where the battery isn't bought but leased. Battery manufacturers are currently going to great lengths regarding the selection of suitable materials, cell designs, battery systems and intelligent charge management to increase the lifespan of the battery system.
