I've asked the Tesla rep several times regarding the replacement cost of a Model S battery . . . he keeps saying $12,000 . . . which IMHO is more than reasonable. However, I've noticed on various other posts that the battery cost was more like 1/2 the cost the the car.
30,000 dollars battery cost for a 50,000 dollar s-model is absolutely insane and will loose potential customers including me. i wanted to get one until i read this and that delivery is pushed back to 2012. if Tesla is going to attract future customers this absurdity has to be addressed.
Gotta' think about what the rest of the car is going to be worth in 2020 and whether a potential party is going to be willing to pay that price PLUS the cost of the $12K battery adjusted for inflation.

While Tesla is not disclosing actual numbers, its battery cost structure is starting to become clearer as you link the bits and pieces that they have disclosed. Starting from the “less than $190/kWh” cost and applying a 35% reduction leads to “less than $124/kWh”.
If you live in the South and already own solar panels, it could take you just under three years to make up the cost of the $3,000 Tesla Powerwall battery.. But if you live in the Pacific Northwest ...
Tesla’s battery technology is similar to other rechargeable batteries both large and small: as time goes on, the battery loses some of its ability to hold a charge. Think of how the battery life of a brand-new smartphone compares to one that is a few years old.
By most estimates, the battery for the Model S that I drove should cost between $42,500 and $55,250, or half the cost of the car. But (Tesla Tech Officer) Straubel indicated that it is already ...
