What Happens If My Electric Car Runs Out of Battery?

By Adrian Castillo

Driving an electric car comes with a wealth of benefits. Not only can you enjoy tax credits and the gratification of having a positive impact on the environment, but you’ll also love that these vehicles require less expensive and less frequent maintenance. However, one question you may be facing is what you’ll need to do when your electric car runs out of battery. After all, these cars aren’t like your standard gas-engine vehicles that you can go fill up at the nearest gas station.

So, what happens if your electric car runs out of battery? Well, typically, you’ll just need a recharge. It’s important to monitor the state of charge that your battery has so that you can recharge it at a time that’s convenient to you. You’ll usually want to charge your vehicle when it’s parked at home or, sometimes, when you’re out and about and can find an EV charger. The last thing you’ll want to do is run out of battery life in the middle of a commute. But what if your battery life has drained completely and it’s failing to recharge? Well, then it may be time for a battery replacement.
