MIT 1303 ECPHEV Editorial 1 850x560
8 year/160,000km Battery Warranty is available to:
  • The original purchaser for a total of 8 years from first registration or a maximum of 160,000km (whichever comes first), subject to the conditions set out in the Warranty Terms. 
The 8 year/160,000km Li-ion Battery Warranty covers:
  • Components found inside the li-ion drive battery case only.
  • This warranty does not apply to any other components or items contained within the vehicle and excludes any external harness or air conditioning components that are external to the drive battery case that lead to an internal connection within the drive battery case.

Please note; the battery is not a service item which is expected to need replacement during the vehicle's life and replacement is not included in your PHEV's maintenance schedule. There will be some natural degradation of the Lithium-ion battery chemistry over the life of the vehicle which will lead to a reduction in the pure EV range of your PHEV. The capacity of Lithium-ion batteries generally decreases over time due to a range of factors including, but not limited to: operating environment, temperature, storage, charging frequency and/or equipment used, and battery usage. This decrease is an inherent characteristic of Lithium-ion batteries, and is not due to failure or a manufacturing defects. The decrease in battery capacity has no impact on the performance of your vehicle other than reducing its maximum cruising range by battery.
