Here is the Chevy dealer's estimate to replace an EV Battery in a Chevy Volt that exceeds the car's value at $29,842.15. EVs are parts or salvage vehicles when their batteries die. This is insane, and far more costly to replace a battery in a Ford Focus EV. Stick with gasoline power. EVs were a fad at the turn of the 20th century and faded away. But our government is hell-bent on everyone going electric!
