Hey everybody, longtime lurker first time poster. As with most of you I have been obsessing for years over the Model S. I have never bought a car for anything close to what the Model S cost. I am somewhat able to justify purchasing the vehicle because I drive 110 miles around trip to work 5 days a week. I easily put 32,000 miles or more on a car in a year. Based on my driving habits I feel confident that a 60 KWH battery will work for my needs even factoring in future degradation and cold weather driving. The issue is that the warranty for a 60 KWH battery is only good up to 125,000 miles which might last me 4 years. the 85 kwh battery is unlimited. I plan on keeping the car 8-10 years which could result in mileage in excess of 300,000. Is the 60 KWH battery capably of this or is it just to many cycles for the batteries? If I buy the 85 kwh battery I am basically paying $7,000 (under the current configuration) for an extended warranty. I think I remember reading about a roadster that had over a 100,000 with minimal battery degradation but has any came close to 200,000 yet? I was hoping that some of you battery experts out there can let me know what i am getting myself into with that many miles. In addition, I was wondering what other high mileage drivers have chosen. any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
