i wonder if they do that just to build sales and that they know the super long warranty will haunt them big time in the future, could be a big loss for them in the end

If anyone is doing it, maybe GM is one of them? They do have the Volt and ELR

So I've found the industry norm for EV battery warranty seems to be 8 years or 100,000 miles...

Thats a nice range. Good for people who will want to buy an EV cargo van since they will be likely to keep them longer than people who buy electric passenger vehicles.

Do any companies offer a lifetime warranty on electric vehicle batteries? I seem to remember that some company did that. That shows that a company really believes in their product. I mean once the battery doesn't work anymore, you can't really drive the car. Buying a replacement battery without warranty would be very expensive.

Yeah you're right, it's 8 years unlimited mileage, which is great IMO, good for those that do a lot of driving.
