Although insurance does not cover replacing your Tesla battery, it is possible that your Tesla warranty may cover the replacement.

The standard A Tesla warranty covers production defects in batteries and related hardware up to 8 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.

According to Current Automotive, Teslas Model 3, as well as several other new EVs, offers at least an 8-year warranty, or 100,000 miles on the battery.

If a battery is under the manufacturer's warranty -- which is usually for 8 years and 100,000 miles -- 

you should be able to have it replaced without any additional costs.

A battery is covered under a replacement guarantee if it has lost more than thirty percent of its original capacity.

If your Tesla is still covered under warranty, your 12-volt battery replacement should be covered. 

If your battery capacity drops below 70% within your warranty term, Tesla covers the required repairs. 

A Tesla driver would have little trouble replacing their existing batteries.

If you are replacing a Tesla vehicle battery at home, there are a few issues that can arise.

For one, Model 3 batteries are thousands of dollars each to replace. 

According to Elon Musk, replacing the battery modules on Tesla costs between $5,000 and $7,000. 

Each Tesla model uses four to five battery modules per car, meaning that an outright replacement would set you back $20,000 to $35,000.
