Just had a thought about 8 yrs from now.

When the battery warranty is over for us I expect there to be a 200kwh battery car and to cost likely about what a 100d is now....so the car we have 75d will likely be dirt cheap used on the market by then which will be interesting to see seeing as by then there may be alot more ev from various companies on the road as well.

There currently are 60, 75, 85,90 and 100Kwh Tesla on the road. They all have market value. The smaller batteries tend to bring lower prices, and the newest batteries a premium.

Imaging things will be the same 8 years from now.

Side benefit is that Tesla has been ramping up the speeds that many of the battery sizes can charge. This tends to increase the value of all those eligible.

The Model S and the X have and advantage that I believe that their batteries were designed to be able to be dropped and quickly replaced. So it could be possible that Tesla makes a new technology battery available for retrofit for the cars. So, drive in, pay some money, swap batteries and drive away, possibly in less than an hour.

Hopefully longer range and greater spread in diversity of application (semi, farm equipment, construction, marine, etc) will be in the future. I've got an old 85 and the range/charging speed is perfectly fine for 98% of our driving needs. More range and faster recharging would always be appreciated on a road-trip, but Tesla is way ahead of the competition. Our Fiat takes 4hrs to recharge from near empty to full and gets about 55 mi on the fwy/105 mi city range.

Shorter range EVs will still serve a purpose, but borrowing a longer range vehicle for road-trips would be wise.

For the newer models, yes. But they’ve been throttling the older batteries
Which doesn’t really paint a bright future for the current 100 kWh batteries

That’s a nice thought, unfortunately so far tesla has shown no interest in selling a battery, they prefer you buy a new car.
